Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kent.) says he has asked the intelligence community and White House for any evidence that he was surveilled by President Obama.
Paul tweeted Friday that “I have formally requested from the WH and the Intel Committees info on whether I was surveilled by Obama admin and or the Intel community!”
The tweet appears to build off of President Trump’s claim, presented without evidence, that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump Tower during the campaign.
FBI Director James Comey has flatly denied any direct surveillance of the Trump campaign.
