The US Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr says they have seen no evidence to back up Trump’s allegation that the previous administration wiretapped Trump Tower.

The statement read.

“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 White House responded in shape of spokesperson Sean Spicer:“They’re not findings.

There’s a statement out today. So the statement clearly says that at this time that they don’t believe that (Obama tapped Trump.)They have yet to go through the information.”

Spicer also said Fox News Judge Andrew Napolitano, said sources claimed Obama “used GCHQ” in the UK to provide transcripts of Trump’s conversations.

A GCHQ spokesman responded, saying the claims are “utterly ridiculous and should be ignored.”
