The Wall Street Journal: Top Democrat doubts White House has evidence of wiretapping

A top intelligence overseer in Congress said he doubts the administration will back up Donald Trump’s claim that former President Barack Obama ordered a wiretap on him during the 2016 campaign.

“I don’t expect we’re going to see any evidence of this,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” Schiff, along with committee chairman Devin Nunes (R., Calif.), had sent a letter to the Justice Department asking for evidence of a wiretap by Monday, according to a congressional aide.

A spokeswoman for the Justice Department didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
