Last week, Blasting News reported on tweets by President Donald Trump claiming that former President Barack Obama had been wiretapping the then-candidate's campaign offices in Trump Tower, without offering any sort of evidence. The Young Turks have suggested that President Trump got the idea that his offices had a wiretap placed in them from information reported by Breitbart and InfoWars. Now, the bipartisan House Intelligence Committee has reportedly ordered the Department of Justice to turn over any evidence in its possession with regard to the Trump wiretap claims.

The request is reported to come from "ranking Republican and Democratic" House members, including Republican Devin Nunes, and Democrat Adam Schiff, each from California. The group is said to "want answers" with regard to the veracity of the president's Trump Tower wiretap allegations.

Former President Obama has denied the Trump wiretap allegations

Officials with the Justice Department are said to have until today to turn any evidence over to the Congressional probe. President Trump compared the Obama wiretap to the Watergate scandal that ended former President Richard Nixon's career. "Bad or sick guy," is how the president described Barack Obama. A representative of the former president stated that Donald Trump's claims were "simply false."

Cenk Uygur, with TYT, has reported that there appear to be "dozens" of examples of President Trump getting his information from InfoWars.

Information, such as the wiretap allegation, that is often presented with no evidence. Another example is the president referring to a non-existent terrorist attack in Sweden, which prompted an official response from the Swedish government. Given the president's short track record of accepting news reports from Fox, Breitbart, and InfoWars, the House Intelligence Committee's concern about the president's sourcing of his information might seem justified.

The Young Turks has featured other claims by Alex Jones, host with InfoWars, including those that include alien and supernatural elements.

John McCain calls on Trump to retract wiretap statement, or provide evidence

The Globe and Mail quoted Kellyanne Conway, a senior White House adviser, with regard to the administration possessing no evidence to back president Trump's wiretap claims up, whatsoever.

However, Conway was said to offer the possibility that "Obama used a different technique." The adviser expressed that she was "happy" that a probe into the president's claims was taking place.

U.S. Senator from Arizona John McCain stated that President Trump really only has two choices, either retract the assertion, or provide the wiretap evidence. If "President Obama violated the law, we have got a serious issue here, to say the least," Senator McCain was quoted. Reportedly, James Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has advised the DOJ to "dispute" the wiretap claim, but only privately.
