Leading Republicans, Democrats reject Trump's Obama wiretap assertion
"The point is, the intelligence committees in their continuing, widening, ongoing investigation of all things Russian Federation, got to the bottom - at least so far - with respect to our intelligence community that - that no such wiretap existed", he said. On Wednesday the two heads of the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee also said they had received no information that would back the Trump tweets, and earlier this week top White House aide Kellyanne Conway said she did not know anything to justify it.
A spokesman for May said on Friday that the charge, made on Tuesday by Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano, that the UK's signals intelligence agency GCHQ had helped Obama to wire tap Trump after his victory in last year's U.S. presidential election, was "ridiculous". "The point is, the intelligence committees in their continuing, widening, ongoing investigation of all things Russian Federation, got to the bottom - at least so far - with respect to our intelligence community that - that no such wiretap existed", the House speaker told reporters.
In response to top lawmakers on the Senate Intelligence Committee finding "no indications" that Trump Tower "was the subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government" Nunes said that was impossible to determine at this stage of the investigation.
The Republican and Democratic leaders of the House Intelligence Committee say they have seen no evidence supporting President Donald Trump's claim that the Obama administration wiretapped him a year ago.
The lawmakers appear to be referring to former White House national security adviser Mike Flynn and potentially other associates of President Donald Trump. After missing a deadline set by Nunes and Schiff, the department asked for more time to review their request and "to determine what if any responsive documents may exist".
"I think the president has been very clear when he talked about this", Spicer told reporters. Those include situations when the communications contain information that a crime has or is about to be committed, when the Americans' identity is necessary to understand the importance of the foreign intelligence collected or when the communication provides information that an American may be an agent of a foreign power.

Stone said he was unaware at the time that USA officials believed the hacker had ties to Russian Federation.
The two cited media reports that said both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department were involved, raising questions about the "content and context of Mr. Flynn's discussions with Russian officials".
Mr Ryan also said there was no evidence of surveillance. Asked Wednesday if he had ever briefed Trump on the investigation or given the president any reason to believe he had been wiretapped by the Obama administration, Sessions said, "The answer is no".
With the statement from the Senate Intelligence Committee chiefs, it's a bicameral bipartisan assessment that the president accused his predecessor of wiretapping him without any evidence to back up the claim.
Other influential Republicans, including Sen. Schiff says he and Nunes are willing to take steps to compel the department to comply with their request if it refuses by the March 20 deadline they've given the Justice Department.
"They are not findings", he said.
