Washington, D.C.- Monday could be a pivotal day for American politics. The Congressional Budget Office will potentially weigh in on what President Trump’s proposed health plan will cost and lawmakers have asked the Justice Department to produce evidence President Obama tapped phones at Trump Tower.
The President has received pressure from both sides of the aisle to produce evidence of tapping.
“The President has one of two choices, either retract or to provide the information that the American people deserve,” said Sen. John McCain, (R) Arizona, Sunday on ‘CNN State of the Union.’
The Justice Department and FBI are supposed to produce a paper trail by Monday evening if possible. On Sunday, the President’s supporters discounted the former Director of National Intelligence denials of any wire tapping at Trump Tower.
“He can say those organizations under his purview did not do this,” said KellyAnne Conway, White House Counselor, on NBC’s Today Show. “That doesn’t discount the rest of the Obama administration.”
As national leaders wait for more information on surveillance, the Congressional Budget Office is due to report what the GOP health plan will cost. Estimates suggest 15 million people could lose coverage. A repeal vote is scheduled for next week.
