WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (IL-05) spoke on the House Floor introducing resolution requesting Trump Administration provide evidence of wiretapping.

Below is a video and transcript of the speech. 

Mr. Speaker: Today, I have introduced a resolution of inquiry, requesting that the President and Attorney General provide  the House with any evidence in their possession related to President Trump’s claim that President Obama illegally ordered the wiretapping of Trump Tower. 


A task not welcomed but necessitated by the President’s seemingly baseless accusations that the Obama Administration wiretapped Trump Tower during the presidential campaign. These accusations should be taken literally and seriously. 


As a member of the Intelligence committee, I have seen absolutely no evidence that supports the President’s claims. 


President Trump and the Department of Justice have a responsibility to completely clarify the President’s statements on Twitter. 


If the White House and the Department of Justice are unable to produce this evidence, as I suspect will be the case, the President owes the American people a thorough and immediate explanation and apology.
