WATCH: Devin Nunes Says There Was No Wiretap of Trump Tower

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.”

Wiretapped vs Surveillance

It’s not a good article because it fails to address the question of illegal surveillance. Trump never stated that he had been wiretapped.
His tweet used a qualifier, “wiretapped”, which allows for open interpretation, including any other surveillance activities.

Nunes says, “I think the concern that we have is, were there any other surveillance activities that were used…” – This is the whole point, and it was not addressed by the article.

No he wasn’t specific about it, that’s why he had used the quotation marks. Neither was the NYT specific about it when they first ran the story that FBI collected wiretapped data. They never mentioned the action of recording phone conversations, but of an ongoing investigation into Trump aids. So that means that the word “wiretapped”, with or without the qualifying quotation marks can be used to indicate a general surveillance or investigation of someone.

@Anonynmous at 5:12 a.m. . . . a Trump supporter quoting the “fake” NY Times to bolster your claim???? Oh, that’s rich. Either they’re fake or they’re not–you and Donnie Boy can’t have it both ways!!

@affirmationtstoday, you are absolutely correct . . . and “nonsense” is a politically correct term for it!

Trump and his minions are peas in the pod . . . totally off the charts and bereft of a even a single iota of accountability.
