Justice Dept: No evidence of Trump Tower wiretapping

The motion confirms that neither the FBI nor the Justice Department’s National Security Division have records documenting wiretaps as alleged by President Trump in a series of tweets earlier this year.

In March, Trump wrote on Twitter that he had he discovered that former President Barack Obama had Trump Tower wiretapped during the runup to the November election, which he called “McCarthyism.”

But the Trump administration did not provide evidence that such surveillance took place, and a spokesman for Obama rejected that the administration wiretapped the real estate mogul’s building.
