Lawmakers: No evidence to back Trump's wiretap claims against Obama

20 March 2017, 03:46 | Taylor George

On Thursday, Nunes, whose committee is handling the investigation into President Donald Trump's seemingly unsubstantiated wiretapping claims, said at the Capitol that he didn't think there "was an actual tap of Trump Tower", adding that if Mr. Trump's claims were to be considered literally, then "clearly the president was wrong".

The US intelligence community has publicly blamed Russian Federation for hacks of the Democratic National Committee previous year, and suggested the cyber attacks were aimed at steering the election to a Trump victory.

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith said the network could not independently verify the reports from Andrew Napolitano, a former judge and commentator who has met with Mr Trump.

"As far as wiretapping, I guess, by this past administration, at least we have something in common perhaps", Trump said.

Last week, White House spokesman Sean Spicer turned to a Fox News analyst's contention GCHQ had helped Mr Obama wiretap Trump Tower.

Nunes stressed Sunday that he also hasn't seen evidence that the Trump campaign collaborated with the Kremlin and wanted the focus placed on leaks from the intelligence community.

Trump and his staff continue to defend the allegation, even after both the House and Senate Intelligence Committees found last week that they have no evidence to suggest any sort of activity.

Cotton noted that former officials, including Obama's former director of national intelligence, James Clapper, have said that there was no evidence to substantiate such links. "I'm going to let the tweet speak for itself", he said.

"I hope that we can put an end to this wild goose chase because what the president said was just patently false", Schiff said on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

The FBI is also probing Russian interference in the election.

"The one crime we know that's been committed is that one: the leaking of someone's name.", Representative Devin Nunes, chairman of the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told Fox News Sunday.

The White House doubled down on the wiretapping claims last week.

The apparent lack of evidence for Trump's claims is causing consternation among the President's Republican allies and Democrats alike, and speculation about how he will respond if Comey testifies that they are baseless.

"I think it would be quite good for the administration to put forward what evidence there is", Cruz told CBS television. "There's certainly enough for us to conduct an investigation".

Still, the shifting explanations of meetings a year ago between Trump aides, among them Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Russians, including Moscow's ambassador to the United States, the fact that the first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had to resign after not being forthright about such contacts, and the President's own praise for Russian President Vladimir Putin, have kept the speculation alive.
