Dem Rep Bass: Either Trump Is ‘Diabolical’ or ‘Not Very Stable’

Sunday on MSNBC, while discussing President Donald Trump’s tweets accusing the Obama administration of wiretapping Trump Tower before the election, Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) said either Trump was “diabolical” or “not very stable.”

Bass said, “Today Clapper has certainly clarified that there was not a warrant, but the general point is that we, I know, have not even gotten to the tip of the iceberg about the connection between Russia and Trump. If there was a FISA warrant or not, apparently there wasn’t. It seems to me that Trump was becoming paranoid. It took Nixon several years before he became paranoid. He was concerned about Obama conspiring with the protesters, and he was the one that encouraged the protesters. So I guess this weekend he chose to focus on President Obama, but according to Clapper that there was not a wiretap. There was no FISA warrant.”

She added,”A lot of people believe he just doesn’t seem to have settled into the presidency yet. I mean, it’s as though he needs to understand what powers a president has or not. President Obama wouldn’t have the power to say let’s go wiretap Donald Trump. So, you know, it’s just a concern, and it just makes one wonder whether it’s diabolical or whether he just is not very stable.”
