A candidate to replace Tom Price in Congressional District 6 went head to head with Democrat strategist Paul Begala over President Trump’s claim that his predecessor wiretapped his phone lines.
Monday on CNN’s “At This Hour,” Amy Kremer, an original co-founder of the Tea Party movement and co-chair of Women Vote Trump, said that Trump’s concern is not far-fetched. Kremer pointed to previous scandals that she said are similar in nature, like when the IRS targeted conservative groups.
“I don’t think the president would have made that allegation if he didn’t have some information indicating that,” Kremer said.
“Most people are not focused on this out here in the country,” she later added. “They want the president to do what he was elected to do, and that is repealing Obamacare and tax reform.”
Democrat strategist Paul Begala pushed back, saying that Trump has made claims before that are not “based in fact and truth.”
“This is a guy who has subscribed to every batty conspiracy theory,” Begala said. He then argued that the real story is “getting to the bottom of how Russia helped elect Donald Trump.”
“The American people are with the president,” Kremer refuted. “The ones that elected him are with him.”
She said that the president will release evidence of alleged wiretapping when necessary.
“One thing we’ve seen is Donald Trump operates on Donald Trump time,” said Kremer. “And he doesn’t necessarily go to the media, he’ll go around the media through Twitter or whatever. I‘m sure when he’s ready to put that out there, we will hear from it.”
A frequent CNN guest, Kremer has long been an outspoken critic of the GOP establishment. She assisted the campaigns of Republican challengers to leaders like Mitch McConnell.
