Congress pressures FBI to reveal any Trump wiretap info
21 March, 2017, 00:41
White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Tuesday said Trump is "extremely confident" that the Justice Department will produce evidence to back up his assertion.
The White House and its allies in recent days have attempted to change the interpretation of Trump's explosive tweets from earlier this month.
Trump, in an interview Wednesday with Fox News, predicted there would be "some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks".
Nunes also says the committee is tussling with the Office of the Director of National Intelligence over whether the committee will be allowed to have the computer technology needed to go through CIA evidence about Russia's interference in the election. "Two days ago the Department of Justice asked for an additional week". He used GCHQ. What is that?
The leaders of the House intelligence committee wrote the three agencies earlier this week, asking for details about Americans who surfaced in intelligence collections between June 2016 and January.
Spicer said he believes Trump will be vindicated.
Trump on Friday repeated his claim against Obama, rejecting rising calls from Republicans and Democrats to withdraw the charge and apologize. "We see no evidence of that". "He really is making a fool of his Cabinet and his people, because they have to defend something that is so indefensible, unsubstantiated, and just a stunt to deflect attention from some of the nasty stuff that is going on under his leadership". Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) announced that FBI Director James Comey committed to provide a classified briefing on the wiretapping issue "at some time in the future".
Spicer disputed this bipartisan statement, however, saying the committee has not been briefed by the Department of Justice, which is investigating the claims.
Both Russia's clandestine interference in US politics and Mr. Trump's disturbing habit of making explosive political charges, without supporting evidence, have dramatically overshadowed the first two months of his presidency.
In four separate statements on Twitter, Trump said he was the target of a wiretap. An Obama spokesman said that was "simply false". But Obama and Merkel ultimately repaired the rift, and their relationship was among the closest and most critical Obama had with any world leader. "And so you shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox", he said.
Trump and Merkel met for the first time Friday after the president had engaged in a series of harsh criticisms of her on the campaign trail.
In a rare public statement, Britain's GCHQ, Britain's Government Communications Headquarters, the equivalent of the US National Security Agency which monitors overseas electronic communications, said the claims were "nonsense" and should be ignored. The president said he'd learned about the alleged wiretapping from news reports referencing intercepted communications, despite the fact that he and his advisers have publicly denounced stories about government agencies reviewing contacts between Trump associates and Russians.
