GOP House Intelligence chair admits if you take Trump's wiretapping tweets 'literally,' then 'clearly the president was wrong'

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) admitted Wednesday that Congress still "doesn't have any evidence" that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the presidential election. "I don't think there was an actual tap of Trump Tower," Nunes said, weeks after President Trump leveled the accusation against Obama in a series of tweets.

Nunes said it's clear Obama wouldn't "physically go over and wiretap Trump Tower," leaving Americans with a tough choice. "Now you have to decide, as I mentioned to you last week, are you going to take the tweets literally? And if you are, then clearly the president was wrong," Nunes said. He suggested a less literal interpretation may be that Trump was discussing his concerns about the possible surveillance of him or his associates.
