Breaking: Senate Intel Committee says No Evidence of Wiretapping… BUT…

On Thursday afternoon the leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee released a joint statement saying that they had discovered “No indications” that the Trump campaign had been under surveillance by our government.

Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) and Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) issued a joint one sentence announcement of their findings, “Based on the information available to us, we see no indications that Trump Tower was the subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government either before or after Election Day 2016.”

The Senators chose not to elaborate and as yet have not made themselves available to the press to answer further questions. The statement comes a day after President Donald Trump appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight and told the eponymous host that in the next week or two, he would release evidence proving that he had indeed been under surveillance.

“Trump told host Tucker Carlson that the administration ‘will be submitting things’ to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence ‘very soon.’ The president added that he ‘will be, perhaps speaking about this next week’ and predicted that ‘you’re going to find some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next 2 weeks.’

“When asked by Carlson why he tweeted about the alleged phone tap before producing evidence, Trump said his definition of wiretapping ‘covers a lot of different things.’

“‘That really covers surveillance and many other things,’ he said. ‘Nobody ever talks about the fact that [the words ‘wires tapped’] was in quotes [in the tweet], but that’s a very important thing.’”
