In Denial: Rep. Adam Schiff says "No truth" to claim Obama wiretapped Trump

Written by  CBS News

As lawmakers' investigations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election continue to press forward, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, says that there is "no truth" to the claim that President Obama had wiretapped then-candidate Donald Trump at Trump Tower during the campaign, in light of new reports that Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was wiretapped.

"Not only did Director Comey and Director Mike Rogers of the NSA say there was no truth to the president being wiretapped at Trump Tower, but the Department of Justice recently confirmed that was false as well," Schiff said on CBS News' "Face the Nation" Sunday.

"I can't comment on whether Mr. Manafort was ever the subject of surveillance of any kind," he added. "Even if he were, though, that doesn't justify or suggest that the president was wiretapped improperly by Barack Obama, so there's no truth to that."

Schiff's comments come after CBS News confirmed that Manafort was being monitored by the FBI at the time.

"The allegation that he [Manafort] was reaching out to Russian oligarchs close to Putin, and suggesting that he would offer them useful information to them while he was campaign manager, at the very same time the Russians are reaching out to him to offer information on Hillary Clinton," Schiff said.

The DNC worked with the Kremlin and the CIA and FBI with the DNC. Mr. Shiftless knows this and is a bald face liar and socialists hell bent on destroying the USA, our Constitutional Republic, Individual rights, capitalism, the family, faith in Jesus Christ and eventually much of the population. All of these lying globalists are pushing to destroy our great country and they hate Trump as they did JFK and Reagan because he is not an insider with them.
