Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, said Sunday morning the documents delivered to the committee by the Department of Justice indicate there was no wiretap of Trump Tower.
“The president doesn’t go and physically wiretap something,” Nunes said on Fox News Sunday. “So if you take the president literally, it didn’t happen. I think the concern that we have is, were there any other surveillance activities that were used … Was there a physical wiretap of Trump Tower? No. But there never was. And the information we got on Friday continues to lead us in that direction. … There was no FISA warrant that I’m aware of to tap Trump Tower.”
Nunes, a Republican who represents California’s 22nd District, also said during his appearance on Fox News Sunday there has been no evidence so far to show collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“I’ll give you a very simple answer: no,” Nunes said, when asked by host Chris Wallace if he had “seen any evidence of any collusion between” what Wallace called “Trump World, any associates and campaign officials,” and the Russians “to swing the 2016 election.”
Nunes said he has seen “no evidence of collusion.”
