Trump stands by unverified wiretap claim

Trump stands by unverified wiretap claim

In his interview with Carlson, Trump also mentioned a Fox News segment with host Bret Baier as a source.

He added: 'I think you're going to find some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks'.

President Donald Trump defiantly refused to back down Friday from his explosive claim that Barack Obama wiretapped his phones, and sidestepped any blame for the White House decision to highlight an unverified report that Britain helped carry out the alleged surveillance.

Conway fired back at Cuomo's suggestion that she may have meant to cast doubt on the scale of surveillance, saying, "I'm allowed to talk about things in the news without you questioning anyone's personal integrity". He specifically accused the outgoing president of ordering wiretapping of the incoming president.

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. "Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!"

Trump wrote on Twitter on 3 March: "How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process".

The tweets remain online, and Trump told Fox News late Wednesday that he was going to produce evidence - eventually.

Conway walked back her comment later that morning on CNN, somehow including a reference to "Inspector Gadget", a franchise that last enjoyed relevance during the same period that the majority of the Trump administration's policies are lifted from. Rather, it requires United States law enforcement to seek a warrant under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act through a FISA court.

This week he said neither Mr. Trump nor the White House would respond to further questions about the controversy until Congress finishes its investigation.

If no evidence of wiretapping at Trump Tower emerges, his credibility would be newly damaged.

James Clapper, who stepped down as director of national intelligence in January, has said no such order was ever issued.

Spicer read aloud to reporters news reports from recent months that suggested there could have been spying on Trump Tower or the Trump campaign, and said people should wait for the formal conclusion of any investigations. But Nunes has left the door open to the potential that communications between Trump's aides and others were swept up in "incidental" collection.

However, Nunes said that he still had concerns about "other surveillance activities looking at [Trump] and his associates".

Other influential Republicans, including Sen.

Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Dianne Feinstein of California sent a letter February 15 to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Comey asking about the circumstances that led to Flynn's resignation.

Frustrated that there has been no response to his demand, a week ago, for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to produce copies of any warrants or court orders that would have sanctioned surveillance of Trump and his campaign, Graham also threatened to go the subpoena route, arguing on CNN: "I want to get to the bottom of it".

"We talked about this several days ago", Spicer said.

The chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Republican Devin Nunes, has also said he has seen no evidence of wiretapping, but did not rule out the possibility of "incidental" surveillance, per CNN.
