In an interview on Special Report with Brett Baier, Ryan confirmed that Obama ordered for the wiretapping of Trump Tower and Donald Trump’s private phone.
Brett Baier asked Paul Ryan if he was concerned, that the Obama administration may have been surveilling members of the Trump campaign in a pretty detailed investigation during the election.
Baier also mentioned a report, from June 2016, by FISA requesting by the Obama administration to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance court to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several other campaign officials. The requests got turned down. But then in October they renew it and they do start a wiretap with some computer and Russian banks.
Ryan said, ‘none of us in Congress, or anybody I know in Congress, has been presented with evidence to the contrary of what you just said.
Baier was making the point that the Obama administration was pretty aggressive regarding the FISA requests.
Ryan said he has Seen nothing come of that, that being the point.
