The Justice Department confirms Trump lied

 article about obama didnt wiretap trump tower
The Justice Department says nobody cared enough about Trump to bug Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election.

The Justice Department's court filing late Friday confirms that they don't have any evidence whatsoever that Trump Tower has been a target of Obama's surveillance during the 2016 presidential election, and same was revealed by the investigations of FBI into the Trump's claim.

Trump tweeted in March - "Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!" He also tweeted "How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!"

The bad/sick guy turns out to be Trump who made those claims in the first place. And based on the evidence coming out now pretty much daily about his business interests is Russia, maybe it would have actually made sense to bug him.

One way or another, Austin Evers, America Oversight's executive director has just said that "The FBI and Department of Justice have now sided with former Director Comey and confirmed in writing that President Trump lied when he tweeted that former President Obama 'wiretapped' him at Trump Tower."
