MSNBC Host Slams Republican Congressman on Wiretap Issue – Video

The Republican congressman went on MSNBC and thought it was a good idea to accuse the host of spending too much time on Trump’s “wiretapping” claim. The Republican congressman told the MSNBC host that her network kept pushing the wiretapping story to boost their ratings.

It was then that host Katy Tur let loose on Rep. Mo Brooks. “You think it’s ratings?” Tur asked. “That’s why we’re talking about the president accusing another president or wiretapping him?”

The Alabama congressman complained that Tur had not spent enough time on an “important story” about the Federal Reserve raising its benchmark interest rate — even though she had covered it minutes earlier.

“Congressman, we led our newscast with that so thank you for pointing that out,” Tur replied calmly. “And secondly, there is a hearing underway on Capitol Hill talking about wiretapping and talking about information being searched or asked for by the FBI and from the DOJ. So, we are choosing to cover what is going on in Washington — and that is what is going on in Washington.”

“And my question to you is, because we are covering this, because that is what is going on in Washington, do you have a message to your president to say, ‘Hey, if you’re going to make an accusation, why not produce the evidence so that everybody’s not running around searching for the evidence when you say you have it?” the MSNBC asked, repeating her earlier question.

Brooks agreed that it was “incumbent upon President Trump” to share “whatever information he has about the prior administration wiretapping him.”

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!
