WASHINGTON, DC — March 16, 2017 — Economist Group Business division RollCall.com reporter Rema Rahman, in here lede today divulged, “The top two lawmakers on the Senate Intelligence Committee joined their House counterparts on Thursday to confirm there is no evidence to back President Donald Trump’s claim that he was under surveillance by the prior administration.

Rema Rahman writes, “The top two lawmakers on the Senate Intelligence Committee joined their House counterparts on Thursday to confirm there is no evidence to back President Donald Trump’s claim that he was under surveillance by the prior administration.

“Chairman Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican, and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, a Virginia Democrat, said in a joint statement there were “no indications” to back up Trump’s assertion.

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

“The statement came the day after the leading Republican and Democratic lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee said they believed there was no proof Trump was wiretapped during former President Barack Obama’s administration.

“Trump earlier tweeted the accusation that Obama had wiretapped phones in Trump Tower just before the November election.

“Since the tweet, the White House has attempted to backtrack the claims, even though the president asked both Intelligence committees to determine if Obama ordered Trump Tower to be bugged.

“That investigation is part of an ongoing probe regarding Russian meddling in the U.S. election and any ties Trump and his associates had with Russia during the campaign as well as intelligence leaks.

“The House Intelligence Committee will hold its first public hearing to discuss the investigation on Monday.”

  1. Move On

    Nothing new here. Move on. NSA spying on us all for years and not one Senator or Congressperson doing anything about it.

  2. Justice

    Of course there’s NO EVIDENCE when a gov’t agency can police itself. NOTHING TO SEE HERE! When you have Loretta meeting Bubba on a tarmac. Just like the IRS over reaching and targeting. Look at the VA hospital…ALL top spots sent packing!

    1. Arti Fufkin

      The Obama travestry continues.The shadow government pulling all the pussy hatters and snowflakes strings…..with finances thru George Soros.

        Who downgraded then fired Richard Clarke because he kept on warning that Bin Laden was going to attack the USA – BUSH.

        Who foolishly placed his trust in warlords to stop Al Qaeda at Tora Bora – BUSH.

        Who looked into Putin’s eyes and saw his soul – BUSH.

        Who left Afghanistan too soon and committed the greatest foreign policy blunder in American history by starting a war in Iraq – BUSH.

        Who started illegally spying on US citizens – BUSH.

        Who authorized torture making it impossible to try those tortured in a civilian court – BUSH.

        Who signed the status of forces agreement with Iraq that gave the timeline for US troops to leave Iraq – BUSH.

        Who ignored the financial speculation that caused the great recession – BUSH.

        Who signed the original bill baling out Wall Street – BUSH.

        And yet you blame Obama because you only get your news from FOX and talk radio.
        And for eight years, you never accepted Obama as President.
        And now you are angry that people can’t accept a con-artist as President.

        There Are None So Blind
        As Those Who Will Not See
