Republicans in Congress are expecting a “smoking gun” showing the President Obama administration intentionally spied on President Trump associates, and perhaps Trump himself, Fox News reports:
The intelligence is saïd to leave no doubt the Barack Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Donald Trump, sources said.
No, Trump Tower was not bugged, as POTUS claims, but if the report is accurate his transition team was targeted for surveillance.
What’s next: Fox News says the House Intelligence Committee expects to receive evidence this week. President Trump said he felt “somewhat” vindicated by Devin Nunes’ statements yesterday about “incidental” surveillance of President Trump’s communications. Expect him to be less restrained if this report proves accurate.
