A senior Republican congressman says that former President Obama deserves an apology over President Trump’s unproven allegation that Trump Tower was wiretapped during the 2016 campaign.

“Frankly unless you can produce some pretty compelling proof, President Obama is owed an apology,” Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) told reporters on Friday when asked about the matter.

“If he didn’t do it, we shouldn’t be reckless in accusations that he did,” Cole said adding, “I’ve seen no indication that that’s true, it’s not a charge I would have ever made.”

The heads of the Senate Intelligence Committee stated on Wednesday afternoon that they had seen “no indications” that Trump Tower was surveilled by the U.S. government as President Trump alleged. Their counterparts at the House Intelligence Committee came to a similar conclusion the day before. Both panels are investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.
