Nunes, a California Republican on the Intelligence Committee, put out the following statement Sunday: “One of the focus points of the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation is the US government’s response to actions taken by Russian intelligence agents during the presidential campaign”.
Is there any reason to believe Trump?
So far, we can’t find any.
Another White House aide, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, wouldn’t say on in an ABC interview whether the contentions about the wire tapping-which an Obama spokesman has denied-were true.
Critics now describe Trump’s wiretapping accusations against Obama as something out of a spy novel and quite unusual in the United States. Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any investigations involving Russian Federation last week after reports emerged he misled a Senate panel on his meetings with Russia’s ambassador in Washington during the presidential campaign.
“What did Barack Obama know?” Then in early February, Trump bragged to Bill O’Reilly that he an Obama “get along, I don’t know if he’ll admit this, but he likes me. It’s in the newspapers!” Levin said March 5.
The FBI made the request because such wiretapping would be illegal, since the President can not just order the eavesdropping of a USA citizen’s phones, the sources said.
I have also met on several occasions with the staff of Chairman Bob Goodlatte of the House Judiciary Committee, since judges have been illegally surveilled, and asked them to inquire of FBI Director Comey and his General Counsel James Baker why their Montgomery investigation has appeared to have been “buried” for the last few years.
President Donald Trump is expected to sign a revised travel ban today, media reports said.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who heads the Senate Judiciary subcommittee looking into allegations Russian Federation meddled in the election, said the panel would be asking both Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey and the Justice Department whether he had told the law enforcement agency this weekend to reject Trump ‘s wire-tapping claim.
The current White House is not wrong that this seems a bit like a campaign by the previous administration to damage the new one. “It is false to say that President Obama ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower”, he told Martha Raddatz.
“The Obama administration Federal Bureau of Investigation guy is the Trump administration Federal Bureau of Investigation guy right now”, said Abrams.
Former National Director of Intelligence James Clapper and Sen. Trump built his political reputation on the false claim that Obama was not born in the U.S. The President didn’t specify what information he was basing his accusations upon, but told them he expected an investigation to prove him right.
With no comment yet from the FBI or Justice Department, the possibility remains that Trump was under some sort of surveillance in the course of an intelligence investigation.
Trump ignored the questions, then shared a joke with Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.).
“I’m going to let the tweet speak for itself”, he said. Most courts rule against them because the assumption is that they have chosen to make their lives an open book, which means people will talk about them.
Speaking on air on Sunday, he said: “These allegations made over Twitter caught the West Wing by surprise”.
Apart from the server story, news reports have suggested, as a TIME story did, that “as major banks in America stopped lending him money following his many bankruptcies, the Trump organisation was forced to seek financing from non-traditional institutions. But again, the president put that out there and now the White House will have to answer to exactly what he was referring to”. “Whether that’s a potential FISA court application or denial of that application, or a resubmission of an application or surveillance for that matter”.
