Justice Dept: No evidence of Trump Tower wiretapping

Back in March President Trump sent out a slew of tweets accusing Obama of wiretapping his phones during the 2016 campaign

As for Trump's claim, the Justice Department responded to a FOIA lawsuit filed by American Oversight stating: "Both FBI and NSD confirm that they have no records related to wiretaps as described" by the president.

Documents obtained by an anti-secrecy organization reveal that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice have no evidence for the claim that former President Barack Obama wire-tapped then-candidate Donald Trump.

And as the controversy over Trump's accusation grew, the White House tried to change the definition of "wiretap", suggesting Trump meant to imply a variety of surveillance techniques.

The President is not well, and facts offered up by the DOJ back up the idea that Donald Trump might be insane.

He further tweeted, "The first meeting Jeff Sessions had with the Russian Amb was set up by the Obama Administration under education program for 100 Ambs." adding, "Just out: The same Russian Ambassador that met Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times past year alone". Trump accused via Twitter in early March.

Specific to Trump's March 4 claims, the DOJ "has no records" the then-candidate's home or campaign headquarters - also in the building - were bugged by the federal government near the end of the campaign. Trump clearly attacks and accuses Obama of a felonious act.

The agreement on credit ratings reportedly enables them to share information about internal credit ratings and rating assessment. BRICS countries represent about 40% of the world's population and constitute 22% of the gross world product.

The Justice Department Friday filed a motion to dismiss the case brought by American Oversight, in which it also said that the agencies "do not confirm or deny the existence" of any other records covered under the group's request.

James Comey, who then was FBI director, told a congressional committee in March that the bureau was investigating potential ties between Trump's associates and Russian Federation during the 2016 campaign but there were no signs that the Obama administration was spying on Trump Tower.

"Terrible!" Trump wrote in the first of four tweets on March 4.

On a Friday afternoon before a three-day holiday weekend, the Justice Department threw cold water on one of President Trump's most incendiary claims since moving into the White House, that he was the victim of surveillance by his predecessor.

Reports later indicated that former National Security Adviser Susan Rice ordered some of those staffers identified, or "unmasked". "This isn't news. We have already addressed it", said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The disclosure of the existence or nonexistence of other responsive records "would cause harm to national security" and is therefore exempted under the law, the motion said. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false'.
