Department Of Justice Says It Has No Evidence Obama Ordered Wiretap Of Trump Tower


The Department of Justice confirmed in a court filing it had no evidence to support President Donald Trump’s claim that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the presidential campaign.


“Both FBI and NSD confirm that they have no records related to wiretaps as described by the March 4, 2017 tweets,” the lawyers wrote. “FBI again confirmed that they do not have any such records by consulting with personnel knowledgable about Director Comey’s statements and the surveillance activities of the FBI.”




“The FBI and Department of Justice have now sided with former Director Comey and confirmed in writing that President Trump lied when he tweeted that former President Obama ‘wiretapped’ him at Trump Tower,” Austin Evers, executive director of American Oversight, which filed the public records suit, said in a statement.
