Justice Department: No evidence Trump Tower was wiretapped

Justice Department: No evidence Trump Tower was wiretapped

In a tweet from march 4, last, Donald Trump had ensured that the ex-president Obama had to listen to the Trump Tower, the HEADQUARTERS of his campaign, and denounced a process within according to him the " McCarthysme ".

But in a court filing late on Friday, the Justice Department added itself to the list of entities debunking the allegation.

It was obviously a lie from the outset because Trump refused (because he couldn't) produce any proof of any tap (which, of course, he misspelled), and instead of having his own FBI investigate the charge, he said the Congress should look into it.

The statement was made in a Friday court filing related to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by American Oversight, a liberal watchdog organization founded by former Obama administration officials. Disclosure of such records "would cause harm to national security", the department said.

The FBI has been investigating the claim since Trump tweeted in March, "Terrible!"

Ronda Rousey weds UFC fighter Travis Browne, but where are the details?
Rousey (12-2) was considered the most dominant female in the UFC before her knockout loss to Holly Holm in 2015. Over a year later, Rousey faced Amanda Nunes at UFC 207 and was also knocked out.

The FBI's director at the time, James Comey, had said there was no evidence of a wiretap at Trump Tower. "This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!"

While Trump did not provide any evidence of the alleged wiretapping, reports then noted that the Twitter rant was a possible reaction to a report in the right-wing website Breitbart News.

At the time, a spokesman for Obama, Kevin Lewis, said that Trump tweeted the wiretapping allegations that the suggestion that Obama or any White House official ordered surveillance against Trump was "simply false".

The Kremlin confirmed Wednesday they have received during the u.s. presidential campaign, an e-mail regarding a project of construction of a tower of the group Trump in Moscow, objective ensures have it ignored, while the american president had denied during the campaign to have economic interests in Russian Federation.

Despite the lack of evidence, the White House for several weeks attempted to bolster the baseless claim, and it helped fuel an also unsubstantiated inquiry by Devin Nunes, the Republican chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives intelligence committee, into whether the Obama administration improperly "unmasked" surveillance intercepts of phone conversations Trump associates had with foreigners. As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any United States citizen.
