DOJ Court Filing: No, Obama Never Wiretapped Trump

Law & Crime reports:

The Trump administration just confirmed–for at least the second time–that there is no evidence then-candidate Donald Trump was wire-tapped at Trump Tower in late 2016.

In a 178-page court filing released late Friday night, the Department of Justice noted, “[t]he Government has made two acknowledgments” regarding claims that the previous administration of Barack Obama wiretapped Trump near the tail-end of the 2016 general election.

The latter man famously made those claims in a series of four tweets posted on the morning of March 4, 2017. “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory,” the 45th president wrote. “Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”

The DOJ’s filing comes due to a Freedom Of Information Act demand filed by a USA Today reporter.
