Sen. Rand Paul announced Friday that he has formally requested information from the White House and the Intelligence Committee on whether the Obama administration ever surveilled him.

“I have formally requested from the WH and the Intel Committees info on whether I was surveilled by Obama admin and or the Intel community!” Paul wrote on Twitter.

In two separate tweets, Paul also asked: “Did the Obama admin go after presidential candidates, members of Congress, journalists, clergy, lawyers, fed judges? and “Did the Obama admin use warrantless ‘wiretapping’ on other candidates besides @realDonaldTrump?”

On March 4, Donald Trump declared on Twitter that the Obama administration wiretapped his offices during the presidential campaign. The president said he had evidence of this, and told Tucker Carlson days later that “you will see some interesting things going to the forefront over the next few weeks,” though nothing ever came to the forefront.
