Ex-CIA chief: Trump 'probably should apologize' to Obama over wiretapping claim

John Oliver examined the series of events that followed President Donald Trump's allegation that former President Barack Obama had Trump's telephones tapped during the election campaign.

"I don't get it, and I don't think America gets it, as to why the president continues to defend his statements here", he said.

"He probably should apologize to the president, President Obama".

Hurd also batted back suggestions of partisan "Deep State" workings against Trump.

"It is impacting on our ability to deal with other countries and to deal with the issues related to our national security", he said.

After multiple American and global intelligence agencies, as well as fellow Republicans, have said that there's no evidence Obama ordered surveillance of Trump, HBO's "Last Week Tonight" host slammed the president for saying he got his information from Fox News Channel contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano.

FBI Director James Comey was expected to testify on Capitol Hill Monday before a House committee about Russia's role in last year's election as well as provide some answers about whether Trump was indeed wiretapped.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, for example, said last week she didn't have facts to prove the allegations but that the House Intelligence Committee was investigating the charge.
