Susan Collins: ‘It Would Be Helpful’ if Trump ‘Didn’t Comment Further’ on Russia Probe

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” while discussing President Donald Trump’s tweets accusing the Obama administration of wiretapping Trump Tower before the election, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said, “It would be more helpful” if President Trump turned over any evidence he had of wiretaps to congressional intelligence committees.

She added, “It would probably be helpful if he gave more information. But it would also be helpful if he just didn’t comment further and allowed us to do our work. The committee’s work is underway. I am convinced that we are going to do the kind of exhaustive, in-depth, and prompt investigation that will help put these allegations to rest.”
