A congressional deadline for President Trump’s Justice Department to produce evidence of wiretapping by President Obama has arrived. What do we know?

The House Intelligence Committee deadline for the Justice Department to produce evidence backing up President Trump’s allegation that President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower came and went yesterday. No evidence. The Justice Department asked for more time. There is no precedent for the sitting president’s accusation that his predecessor, Barack Obama, tapped him during the campaign.
