Reuters ------- A Republican lawmaker who heads a House of Representatives oversight panel said on Monday he had seen no direct evidence to back U.S. President Donald Trump's assertion that his predecessor, Barack Obama, wiretapped him. "Thus far, I have not seen anything directly that would support what the president has said," Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told CBS in an interview. The Republican president alleged on Saturday, without offering supporting evidence, that Democrat Obama ordered a wiretap of the phones at Trump's 2016 presidential campaign headquarters in Trump Tower in New York. The White House asked the Republican-controlled Congress to examine, as part of an ongoing congressional probe into Russia's influence on the election, whether the Obama administration abused its investigative authority.
