United States committee 'has not seen any evidence' of Trump Tower wiretap

Months after withdrawing support for Trump, 2 reps from St. Louis area are helping him on health-care reform

"I don't think there was an actual tap of Trump Tower", Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.) told reporters on Capitol Hill Wednesday.

"The president has one of two choices, either retract or provide the information that the American people deserve", McCain said in an interview on CNN's State of the Union.

In a Sunday interview with the New Jersey Bergen County Record, the White House senior counselor responded to claims made by President Trump that the Obama administration had wiretapped his Trump Tower campaign headquarters. Trump provided no evidence for his claim. The House Intelligence Committee set a Monday deadline for the Department of Justice to provide evidence of Trump's claim, which Comey has reportedly asked the department to reject.

"There's no evidence that there was a wiretap of Trump and his associates", said Rep Adam Schiff (D-CA) the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee on 15 March. He continued the allegation against former Obama in other tweets but offered no evidence.

But Monday, Spicer was open to providing an interpretation for Trump's tweet, saying the president told Spicer he was referring to means of surveillance beyond wiretapping in his tweets accusing Obama of doing just that. "Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!"

It was "obvious" that Obama didn't personally implore his national security advisers to install listening devices inside Trump Tower, where Trump's primary office and residence are, Nunes said.


The FBI is investigating Mr Trump's associates' contacts with Russian Federation during the election, as are House and Senate intelligence committees. On Tuesday, the White House said Mr Trump was "very confident" he would be vindicated.

President Trump speaks with leaders from small community banks in the Roosevelt Room at the White House on March 9.

"I would say from our conversations, what we've gotten are sufficient answers", he added but did not say if there was any evidence backing Trump's claim.

Trump has thus far not presented evidence to back up the claim he made on Twitter just over a week ago.

When asked if she knew if Trump Tower was wiretapped, Conway said, "what I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other", suggesting that the Central Intelligence Agency could have accomplished their objective using phones or televisions or even "microwaves that turn into cameras". I don't believe people are using the microwave to spy on the Trump campaign.
