Trump’s Wiretap Allegation Was a Self-Inflicted Wound

The White House is quickly discovering that the rest of the government won’t back up any old accusation the president levels.

National Review  "Can a bombshell be completely expected? Testifying in front of Congress this morning, FBI Director James Comey said he has seen no evidence to support President Trump’s accusation, first leveled weeks ago on Twitter, that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 general election: “We don’t have any information that supports those tweets,” he declared flatly. 

"By refusing, over and over again, to back down from Trump’s original, farfetched charge, his administration has inflicted a lot of completely unnecessary damage upon itself, and even upon the so-called special relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom. This is what happens when the White House prioritizes winning the daily news cycle above all else. This is the natural result of an amazingly shortsighted approach to governing. 

"Recall that all this began, as so many Trump controversies do, with an early morning tweet:" . . .
