Joint Statement from Senate Intel Committee Leaders on Wiretapping Evidence at Trump Tower

WASHINGTON – Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) and Vice Chairman Mark Warner (D-VA) made the following joint statement regarding evidence that Trump Tower was wiretapped during the 2016 election:

“Based on the information available to us, we see no indications that Trump Tower was the subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government either before or after Election Day 2016.”

The president is not backing down on his claims of wiretapping.

President Donald Trump sent out several tweets a few weeks ago in which he claimed the Obama Administration had tapped his campaign phones in the months before the campaign. His White House has doubled down on these allegations in an interview with Tucker Carlson.  Trump told Carlson that “Wiretapping is pretty old-fashioned stuff. But that really covers surveillance and many other things.” The president went on to tell Carlson that he expects “some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks.”

As part of that, James Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is slated to testify in an open hearing of the House Intelligence Committee on Monday. He is expected to be asked about the wiretapping allegations. This will be the first open hearing on the topic.
