DOJ confirms no evidence Trump was wiretapped


The Department of Justice confirmed in a motion filed Friday that there was no evidence Trump was wiretapped by Barack Obama, CNN reports.

The statement: "Both FBI and NSD confirm that they have no records related to wiretaps as described by the March 4, 2017 tweets."

Flashback: These are Trump's tweets from March 4 accusing Obama of wiretapping him.

  • "Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!
  • "Is it legal for a sitting President to be "wire tapping" a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!
  • "I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!"
