The House Intelligence Committee has been undergoing an investigation into the President’s claims that Obama wiretapped him. They recently asked the Justice Department to turn over any and all evidence they have concerning the surveillance of President Trump during his campaign last year.
The Department of Justice has finally sent the documents they have to the House Intelligence Committee. Now the committee is in the process of reviewing the papers. CNN has reported that the Senate Intelligence Committee is now looking into the paperwork as well to make any further determination. But this has not been officially confirmed.
Via The Hill:
The Department of Justice (DOJ) sent documents to the House Intelligence Committee on Friday in response to a request for evidence backing up President Trump’s claim that former President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.
The committee is currently reviewing the documents, an aide confirmed to The Hill.
It’s unclear what’s in the documents, which CNN reported separately had also been delivered to the Senate Intelligence Committee, though that report could not be immediately confirmed.
Press Secretary Sean Spicer clarified that the President referred to surveillance in a broader sense when he claimed he was wire tapped. However, he has not backed off his claims and has maintained the former administration did his people wrong.
Ironically, he even joked about it at a press conference with German Chancellor Merkel who too was surveilled by President Obama. They met this past week for the first time. The House Intelligence Committee plans to discuss the allegations and their findings at a Monday press conference.
In a matter of days, we will all find out what the truth is and whether the Obama administration deliberately tried to interfere with our election. Which is funny because liberals are so quick to accuse Republicans of letting Russians off the hook for interfering in our election. Yet they want to sweep this one under the rug like it is no big deal.
As Lindsey Graham said at one of his town hall meetings, if these allegations are true or false, either way, it will be the greatest controversy since the Watergate scandal during the Nixon administration. Either way, once the findings are released, everyone can get back to the business of doing their work.
