White House Seems to Walk Back Trump's Wiretapping Accusation Against Obama
Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Tulare, told reporters his panel has no evidence that such a wiretap occurred, or at least none that Trump or his administration was able to offer by a previously set Monday deadline.
Senior US Democrats and Republicans have they had seen no evidence to support President Donald Trump's claim that the Obama administration wiretapped his NY home and office building. Trump provided no evidence for his claim. FBI Director James Comey has reportedly already asked the Justice Department to publicly refute Trump's claims.
Ms Conway reiterated the request by the White House that the allegations of wiretapping be wrapped into a Congressional investigation into whether Russian intelligence operatives tried to influence the outcome of last November's election, USA Today reported.
The White House said earlier this week that the evidence would vindicate Trump for his claim made in a tweet earlier this month, though it has so far not provided any. "Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!" Like the President, however, she did not provide any evidence, and later said she was speaking generally about surveillance.

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, adding that the US president believes the evidence will "vindicate him".
Senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway contentiously said in an interview Sunday the federal government had several means of spying on Trump aside from a traditional wiretap, suggesting that the Obama administration could have snooped on Trump's conversations via several electrical appliances like microwaves.
The White House is now downplaying President Trump's tweets where he accused his predecessor of wiretapping.
Obama's spokesperson Kevin Lewis denied the claims on March 4.
The allegation was also remarkable since Mr Trump - although known for making bombastic, unsubstantiated claims via the social messaging platform - would, as president, have access to secret law enforcement and intelligence probes containing such information. But the The Washington Post points out that's not true, as Conway answered directly to a question about the campaign and the alleged wiretapping of Trump Tower.
