And the saga continues…
As we reported, earlier this month, Donald Trump shocked the media when he made claims that Barack Obama‘s administration wiretapped Trump Tower during the campaign.

Late Monday, the Department of Justice asked the House Intelligence Committee for more time to collect evidence in support of the President’s wiretap theory.
Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores confirmed the news in the following statement:
“This afternoon, the Department of Justice placed calls to representatives of the chairman and ranking member of the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to ask for additional time to review the request in compliance with the governing legal authorities and to determine what if any responsive documents may exist.”
Jack Langer, spokesman for House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, said in a statement that the Committee wants the Justice Department to respond no later than March 20.
“The Department of Justice has asked for more time to comply with the House Intelligence Committee’s request for information related to possible surveillance of Donald Trump or his associates during the election campaign… We have asked the department to provide us this information before the committee’s open hearing scheduled for March 20. If the committee does not receive a response by then, the committee will ask for this information during the March 20 hearing and may resort to a compulsory process if our questions continue to go unanswered.”
This wiretap BS is getting out of hand!
