U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation” of President Donald Trump’s wiretapping claims: “I would point out this is not necessarily as outlandish as everyone in the press suggests. We do know that the Obama administration targeted its political enemies. We do know that the IRS, for example, targeted citizens groups that spoke out against Obama. So the notion is not necessarily outlandish but it’s serious so it needs to be based on facts so we should see what the facts are behind this.”
