In a Wednesday press conference, the Daily Beast reports, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) said officials “don’t have any evidence” that the Obama administration ordered wiretapping of Donald Trump while he was running for president.
“Are you going to take the tweets literally?” he asked. “If you are, then clearly the president is wrong.”
However, Nunes also said that it’s “very possible” Trump’s communications were somehow “swept up” in FBI surveillance of Russians, if he was in communication with Kremlin authorities. The first public hearing regarding the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election will take place March 20.
