Senate intelligence panel rejects Trump wiretap claim

Post by Irn Bru on Fri Mar 17, 2017 1:23 am

There are "no indications" that Trump Tower was under surveillance by the US government before or after the election, a Senate committee has said.

The statement from Republican Senator Richard Burr, Senate Intelligence Committee chairman, dismissed Donald Trump's claim his phones were tapped.

Mr Trump had accused his predecessor Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the presidential race.

But White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Mr Trump maintains his claims.

"He stands by it," Mr Spicer said at a daily news briefing on Thursday.

The press secretary refused to accept the Senate Intelligence Committee report, saying "they're not findings".

Mr Spicer quoted at length from an unproven Fox News report suggesting Mr Obama had dodged US restrictions by asking Britain's GCHQ electronic surveillance agency to monitor Mr Trump, an allegation already dismissed as "utterly ridiculous" by the Cheltenham-based complex.


Another lie from the serail liar who comes up with this stuff to direct attantion away from him and onto to Obama and as usuul he sends out spicer to deny it all - par for the course.

They had to issue an apology to the UK this morning. I actually think he knows what is the truth and what's a lie, but he tells the lies anyway and hopes they will stick in people's minds as the truth. And unfortunately, with a large number of numpties, that's exactly what happens.
