‘There’s ample evidence they could marshal to make public to refute those claims, those accusations they say are baseless, but refuse to do so,’ says White House spokesman

The White House has accused the incoming Trump administration of a lack transparency, saying it has taken a “different approach” to claims made about the President-elect from that of the Obama administration when faced with the ‘birther’ conspiracy.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the lack of evidence being released by Donald Trump’s team to rebut claims in a leaked intelligence dossier “only serves to sow public doubt”.

In making his point, he stated that when the Obama team was faced with conspiracy theories that the president was not born in the US, they provided evidence to refute the claims.
