Justice Department Requests More Time on Wiretapping Evidence

The Justice Department said it needs more time to provide information on President Trump’s wiretapping claims.

The House Intelligence Committee has asked for wiretapping applications, orders and warrants involving President Trump or his associates.

The Justice Department called the committee “to ask for additional time to review the request in compliance with the governing legal authorities and to determine what if any responsive documents may exist,” the Washington Post reports. 

The committee wants the records by Monday’s deadline.

President Trump has yet to provide a shred of evidence that Obama ordered wiretapping of the Trump campaign.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer walked back some of the claims.

“If you look at the president’s tweet, he said very clearly, quote, ‘wire tapping’ — in quotes,” Spicer said, gesturing with his fingers to symbolize quotes. “There’s been substantial discussion in several reports. ... There’s been reports in the New York Times and the BBC and other outlets about other aspects of surveillance that have occurred. The president was very clear in his tweet that it was, you know, ‘wiretapping’ — that spans a whole host of surveillance types of options.”

White House Says Feds Likely to Crackdown on Marijuana Legalized by States

States where marijuana is legal for recreational or medicinal use are likely to come under fire from federal law enforcement, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said Thursday.

“I do believe you’ll see greater enforcement of it,” Spicer said during a news conference.

Spicer didn’t offered details about future enforcement, but his comments were the strongest indication yet on how Trump’s administration plans to handle marijuana, the Associated Press reports. 

Under the Obama administration, federal law enforcement was asked not to intervene in state’s marijuana laws.

A recent poll showed that 59% of Americans believe marijuana should be legal, while 71% oppose a federal crackdown.

Marijuana advocates said a crackdown would increase marijuana sales in the black market, emboldening cartels.

“It is hard to imagine why anyone would want marijuana to be produced and sold by cartels and criminals rather than tightly regulated, taxpaying businesses,” said Mason Tvert, communications director for the Marijuana Policy Project.
