President Trump, Senator Burr (R-NC)

Although the Department of Justice has asked for more time to respond to a House request for evidence related to President Donald Trump’s claim he was wiretapped during his presidential campaign, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said he has received “sufficient” responses about the accusation. “I’ve talked to all the appropriate people,” said Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C.

“I would say from our conversations, what we’ve gotten are sufficient answers,”

he added. Although the House Intelligence Committee had imposed a Monday deadline, Burr noted that, “The House operates differently than I do.”Burr said associates of Trump supporter Roger Stone could be brought before the committee due to Stone’s connections with a hacker known only as “Guccifer 2.0” who has claimed credit for hacking the emails of the Democratic National Committee.
