Intelligence Chief Under President Obama Shoots Down Trump's Claim Of Wiretapping (VIDEO)

In response to Donald Trump’s claims that President Barack Obama personally ordered the wiretapping of Trump in Trump Tower James Clapper, the director of national intelligence while President Obama was in office, has stated definitively that Trump’s campaign was not wiretapped under his watch.

 While on “Meet the Press” this Sunday Clapper said...

For the part of the national security apparatus that I oversaw as [director of national intelligence], there was no such wiretap activity mounted against the president-elect, at the time, as a candidate or against his campaign. I can’t speak for other Title III-authorized entities in the government, or a state or local entity,

Clapper added that he would have known if the FBI had obtained a warrant from the FISA court to eavesdrop on Trump’s campaign over suspected illicit contact with Russian officials.

When host Chuck Todd asked him whether he could confirm or deny if a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Act) order for this existed, Clapper declared...

"I can deny it."
