For John, BLUF: It is easier to pop off with an accusation than to walk it back. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Who? US Senator Christopher Coons, Junior Democrat Senator from Delaware.

"[Senator Coons] Contradicts prior suggestion of possibly incriminating transcripts."
When Donald Trump sent out his series of tweets about alleged “tapping” of his phones and/or Trump Tower by Obama, the instant media reaction was that Trump made the allegation without presenting any proof.I call for a FULL investigation. Everything.
As if proof were needed at the time of an accusation for a media that has put Trump on trial for the last 6-8 months based on innuendo about Trump campaign ties to Russia. As pointed out repeatedly, there is zero proof in the public record of such media and Democrat accusations, and no proof was demanded by the media.
In fact, Democratic Senator Chris Coons recently suggested there were incriminating transcripts of calls involving Trump or his associates:
On the other hand, I don't think the Democrats would want that. They would wish for a more narrow investigation, shielding Democratic Party people who were in and out of the Government, but might have touched on this issue.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
