decided to go back and google for barebones old articles written that say "trump tower was not wiretapped" just to refamiliarize myself with the narrative. found something interesting. >http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39172635
Several senior Republicans have rejected the allegations after congressional committees looked into them.
Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Richard Burr said on 16 March there were "no indications" that Trump Tower was the subject of surveillance by any element of the US government either before or after Election Day 2016.
Earlier that day, House Speaker Paul Ryan also said "no such wiretap existed".
And the previous day, House of Representatives Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes said: "We don't have any evidence."
"I don't think there was an actual tap of Trump Tower," he told a news conference.
"Are you going to take the tweets literally?" asked Rep Nunes. "If so, clearly the president was wrong."
"FBI Director James Comey for the first time on Monday confirmed to the House Intelligence Committee that the agency is investigating possible links between Russia and Mr Trump's associates as part of a broader inquiry into Moscow's interference in last year's election.
He also disputed Mr Trump's wiretapping claims.
"With respect to the president's tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets, and we have looked carefully inside the FBI," he told the panel."
just to remind you of the people we're talking about
