Donald Trump might have to fold or show his cards on his claims about Obama wiretapping his phones … the House Intelligence Committee wants proof by Monday.
The committee — chaired by Republican Devin Nunes and ranking Democrat/Trump skeptic Adam Schiff — fired off a letter to the Justice Department, asking for evidence of Trump’s explosive allegations by the start of the upcoming week.
The director of the FBI, James Comey, reportedly received a copy of the letter. Comey has already asked the Justice Dept. to publicly deny Trump’s claims.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Barack Obama has flat out denounced the claims as false.
So far, Trump has not provided any evidence for his claims … and has not publicly responded to the committee’s request.
