No Evidence Of Alleged Trump Tower Wiretap — House Intelligence Chair

President Trump speaks in the White House on Friday

White House press secretary Sean Spicer continued to defend President Donald Trump's claims that he was put under surveillance by his predecessor Barack Obama during the 2016 election, even as fellow Republicans said there is no evidence.

Trump also refused to apologize for the White House's repetition of an unverified claim that Obama had employed a British spy agency to monitor him during the campaign.

The statement from Republican Sen.

James Clapper, the longtime director of national intelligence under Obama, has said Trump's home and office were not wiretapped before the presidential election previous year.

Carlson challenged Trump, asking him why he wouldn't wait to tweet about a serious charge until he had evidence to support his statements.

Sen. Lindsey Graham of also expecting some answers.

"Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election?" he said in another tweet.

It's been a week and a half since President Trump angrily tweeted that President Obama had had Trump's "phones" tapped "in Trump Tower", and the accusation is looking more and more bogus.

Burr and Warner were among eight senior congressional leaders briefed Friday by FBI Director James Comey.

Stone is among a handful of President Donald Trump's associates who are under scrutiny for possible links to Russian Federation during the presidential race.

"You're going to find some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks", he insisted.

On the Fox & Friends program, Napolitano, a political commentator and former New Jersey judge, said that rather than ordering U.S. agencies to spy on Trump, Obama had obtained transcripts of Trump's conversations from GCHQ so there were "no American fingerprints" on it.

The White House and its allies in recent days have attempted to change the interpretation of Trump's explosive tweets from earlier this month.

US President Donald Trump has a credibility problem - with some of his fellow Republicans in Congress and in his cabinet - because of his habit of throwing things out there and leaving it for them to clean up his mess.

"We're not here to listen to speeches", Nunes said. We don't have any evidence that took place.

He said: "I've been reading about things".

During her appearance Monday on CNN's "New Day", Kellyanne Conway says she was talking about "surveillance generally", walking back comments she made in an interview over the weekend suggesting surveillance of the Trump campaign may have been broader than wiretapping. He contended that reporters have focused too much on the president's accusation, which he made without citing evidence, and not statements denying that Trump campaign officials had ties with Russian officials. Stone communicated through Twitter direct messages with Guccifer 2.0, a hacker who has claimed responsibility for breaching the Democratic National Committee.

Ranking Member Adam B. Schiff, a California Democrat, said last week the hearing would be one of many - in public and behind closed doors - to determine the extent of Russia's involvement in the election.
