Senators: 'No indications' Trump Tower subject of surveillance

Written by  Fox News

Two top senators said Thursday they see "no indications" that Trump Tower was surveilled “by any element of the United States government,” in one of the most definitive bipartisan rejections to date of President Trump's wiretapping allegation.

Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Vice Chairman Mark Warner, D-Va., issued the statement only hours after Trump told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that he would be providing evidence of his claims “very soon.”

“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 statement from Burr and Warner said.

The language used by the senators was a degree more definitive than that used by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., who Wednesday said his committee didn’t “have any evidence” wiretapping took place. Nunes also said there was no “actual tap of Trump Tower,” saying he believed Trump was discussing surveillance in a broad sense when he sent his initial tweet.

Amid the attempts of lawmakers in both parties to put the issue to rest, Trump told Carlson on Wednesday that “perhaps” in “this next week” supporting evidence would emerge that the Obama administration engaged in surveillance against Trump and his top lieutenants.

Oh really? If you've been following this, the unintelligence community can tap in and make it appear as another country was doing it. Those two pages just appeared in the guy's mailbox? The world doesn't work that way. A more plausible explanation is OBAMA'S IRS (they never changed personnel there) having access to Trump's tax returns slipped a couple of pages out. Why 2005? It exempted him from paying future taxes. Now it gets interesting. Rachel Madcow thinks she's covered by the first amendment, but anyone who took journalism 101 knows better. There are a few exceptions, but the press died long ago.

Under the Freedom of Information act We the People have the right to see the transcripts of the recordings that were used against Michael Flynn as well as where these recordings were acquired. When all is said and done Trump will be proven right and hopefully Obama will be dealt with as well. We also all know that the only reason this is bi-partison is because none of them want to lose their cash cow which is their access to our tax dollars and their comfortable lives living off of the American Citizens.

Exactly! The dems have pushed the Russian ties an hacking telling us they have intel that trump was colluding then have them tell us where they got the information? Did they illegally listen to trump or his people. Did the do some kind of surveillance and if not then this whole thing needs to be looked at as the dems telling lies I order to make trump and his people look bad. And if they did do surveillance then they need to pay for their crime. I hope the president goes after everyone of them. Because we already know they were listening that is how Flynn was brought down. We already know they got a fisa warrant so what they did with it leaves little to the imagination. So I for one do not believe the dems or libs did nothing. I think they are trying to hard to now brush this aside. I think if we had honest reporters you would see this at least as a possibility.

Don't forget the unintelligence community can hack in and make it appear another country was doing it. The Ukraine really did try to meddle in our election FOR HILLARY.

I hope this is a lesson to Trump next time make sure you got your facts but the liberal news media isn't innocent either of making fake news .

You're right on target, Jo! Obama is one of the most evil liberal socialist democRATs ever to hold office. One day soon some one will slip up in his party and let the "real" cat out of the bag regarding his evil agenda! And, the evidence about eavesdropping on President Trump (at the time Candidate Trump) will be forthcoming, as so far Trump has proven right on his other observations.

Ignorance still is evident in the Obama followers who believe the lies against Trump that he must put out there in order to keep the One World Order agenda going so he can cash in big. Yes I'm talking about the phony scum that worked by the minute to divide us and destroy our sovereignty who goes. by Barack Obama. It only takes a little of a brain to see that Obama is evil. Trump represents what is good about America!

Not much of a hater are you Bob? It is so pitiful to watch all of you left wing snowflakes go into full melt down mode,well not actually pitiful,hilarious is a much better descriptive. Thanks for the laughs,keep them coming. Quick question........ Are you jealous because President Trump didn't grab you by your pussy? Since that is what you accuse him of being,a pussy grabber.

Hey moron! I didn't accuse him, I heard it come out oh his big dumb mouth! You must have missed it because you live under a rock in a cave in Afghanistan!

Hope Pres Trump sugar coats his evidence when he presents it so these two Aholes will love it as they have to eat it and there words.
