TREY GOWDY: NO EVIDENCE OF TRUMP’S WIRETAPPING CLAIM

U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy of Spartanburg, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told Fox News on Monday morning that he has seen no evidence to support President Donald Trump’s assertion that former President Barack Obama tapped his phone lines during the 2016 election.

Gowdy, the former chairman of the committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks, told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer that if those allegations were true there would be “a paper trial” to corroborate the claims. Gowdy said Trump and his administration would have access to that information.

“They are welcome to release it,” Gowdy said.

Gowdy also took issue with inferences that the Department of Justice or FBI were behaving at the behest of political interests.

“I don’t think the FBI is the Obama team, and I don’t think the men and women who are career prosecutors in DOJ are on any team…,” Gowdy said.
