Senators ask DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation for information on Trump's wiretapping accusation

Senators ask DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation for information on Trump's wiretapping accusation

The president likened the tactic to Nixon and Watergate and called the former president a "bad (or sick) guy".

The spelling and punctuation are the president's.

The director of national intelligence at the time of the election denied there was any wiretapping of the Trump campaign.

".there was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president, the president-elect at the time, or as a candidate, or against his campaign".

A U.S. congressional committee has confirmed it will look into Trump's allegation. It is not clear whether the intercepted communications had anything to do with Mr. Trump's campaign, or Mr. Trump himself.

USA anti-missile system's deployment underway in S.Korea
The test took place days after the United States and South Korea kick-started massive military drills, known as Foal Eagle 2017. The deployment came a day after North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un fired four test missiles towards Japan.

However, although the Justice Department - which is headed by Trump's staunch supporter Attorney General Jeff Sessions - oversees the Federal Bureau of Investigation, it is not clear why Comey didn't issue a statement himself.

"The attorney general of the United Sates has to certify FISA applications". "And all we're asking is that we get the same level of look into the Obama Administration and the potential that they had for a complete abuse of power".

Boente would oversee any investigations into the wiretapping, which involves claims Trump campaign officials had contact with Russian agents during the election. But it's undeniable that when Trump tweets, it prompts reporters to investigate the claim, no matter how dubious, when they could be investigating something else. After Trump's tweet storm, talk about Russian Federation started to drop, chatter about wiretapping spiked, and mentions of Obama more than tripled.

"Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory", he posted in a series of tweets on Saturday morning. "Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!"

White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Sunday cited "reports" of "potentially politically motivated investigations" during the 2016 campaign, calling them "troubling".

Chance the Rapper donates $1M to public schools
The internet is already going insane with love and support for Chance's initiative. Former First Lady Michelle Obama even tweeted in support of the rapper.

He says, "I got to believe, I think, he might have something there". He did not disclose any of the reports on which the White House was basing its claim.

Graham also said to CNN Wednesday that he would subpoena the intelligence agencies for evidence.

In the process of answering these central questions, it would be only natural for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, many of whose members are committed to conducting a serious investigation, to inquire about any foreign intelligence surveillance relating to Mr. Trump and Russian Federation, as well as the suspicions on which any warrants might have been based.
