Rep. Will Hurd (R) said in an in­ter­view with ABC News that “he has seen no evid­ence to sup­port Pres­id­ent Trump’s claim of former Pres­id­ent Obama wiretap­ping Trump Tower” and urged the pres­id­ent to apo­lo­gize.

Hurd, a mem­ber of the House In­tel­li­gence Com­mit­tee: “To quote my 85-year-old fath­er … ‘It nev­er hurts to say you’re sorry.’ And it’s not just sorry to [Obama] but sorry to the [United King­dom] for the claims — or the in­tim­a­tion — that the U.K. was in­volved in this as well.” (ABC News)

The con­gress­man also went on NPR this week­end to dis­cuss, among oth­er things, his road trip with Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX 16). “Well, I was go­ing through sep­ar­a­tion anxi­ety. And after it was over it was — you know, it was weird not know­ing where he was,” Hurd said de­scrib­ing how he felt after com­plet­ing the trip. (NPR)
