    Justice Department watchdog: No evidence of Trump Tower surveillance, despite Trump's claims


    Justice Department inspector general Michael Horowitz said Wednesday that his team did not find any evidence that Trump Tower was under government surveillance, after conducting an exhaustive review of FBI surveillance during the Russia investigation.




    Horowitz debunked a conspiracy theory that President Donald Trump invented weeks after taking office in 2017. Horowitz made the comment at a Senate Homeland Security hearing about his report into the early stages of the Russia investigation.
    "Did the report find that the FBI engaged in surveillance of Trump Tower?" Sen. Tom Carper, a Delaware Democrat, asked Horowitz.
    Horowitz replied, "We did not find evidence of surveillance on Trump Tower."

    A month-by-month look at Donald Trump's top lies of 2019




    Washington (CNN)A defining feature of the Donald Trump presidency is the bombardment of lies -- Trump's unceasing campaign to convince people of things that aren't true.


    Trump made more than 2,700 false claims this year. (We're still calculating the final total.) Some of them were innocent slips, some of them little exaggerations. But a large number of them were whoppers: deliberate, significant attempts to deceive and manipulate.
    The breadth of the dishonesty was as striking as the frequency. Trump was inaccurate this year about every conceivable topic, from his dealings with Ukraine to the size of his crowds to, literally, the time of day.
    He told too many lies for us to confidently pick a single most notable lie of the year. So we've picked our 12 most notable, one for every month. (We're defining notable as some combination of egregious, important and bizarre.)

    Trump makes 90 false claims during final two weeks of 2019
    President Donald Trump's final campaign rally of 2019 was not only his longest ever but his most dishonest too.


    Trump made 81 false claims in the week running from December 16 to December 22. He made almost half of them, 40, at his December 18 rally in Battle Creek, Michigan on the night he was impeached -- a wild affair in which he spoke for two hours and one minute, nearly 20 minutes longer than his previous longest rally speech.
    Fact-checking Trump (and others) at CPAC
    Fact-checking Trump (and others) at CPAC
    Trump's dishonesty at the rally ran the gamut of subjects -- from impeachment to the size of his crowds to how far Battle Creek residents need to drive to dispose of their fluorescent light bulbs.
    Trump's previous record for false claims in a rally speech was 36, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania in 2018. His record for any kind of speech, 60 false claims, came in his longest address of any kind, an epic of two hours and two minutes at the Conservative Political Action Conference in March.
    Trump's total of 81 false claims the week of the rally was tied for the fifth-highest weekly total of the 25 weeks we have tracked at CNN since July 8.
    Trump made just nine false claims in the week from December 23 through December 29, the lowest of any week we have counted. Trump has been in Florida since December 20, and he has made few public remarks and had little on his public schedule since a 15-false-claim speech to conservative student group Turning Point USA on December 21.
    Trump made 1,540 false claims between July 8 and December 29, about nine per day.
    The most egregious false claim: Dishwasher dishonesty
    Okay, it sounds kind of comedic when the President of the United States complains extremely inaccurately about dishwashers. But as we explained when we called this the most notable Trump lie of December, it's also serious stuff. Trump is using his false claim that modern dishwashers require more water and electricity than older dishwashers to try to sell an effort to weaken efficiency standards.
    There is some possibility he is very confused rather than intentionally deceitful. But that would still be bad.
    The most revealing false claim: Military planes
    Trump makes false claims not only when trying to deceive low-information voters but when talking to people who are experts in the subject he is being inaccurate about.
    During a Christmas Eve teleconference with members of the military, Trump told them that three years ago, before he was President, they had to use old planes, but that "now you have all brand new."
    Members of the military are well aware of how wrong this is. As of late 2017, the average age of an Air Force plane was 28.3 years. Trump's administration has continued to order new planes since then, but "all brand new" remains false.
    The most absurd false claim: The war on Christmas
    Having promised in 2015 and 2016 that every store would use the phrase "Merry Christmas" again when he became President rather than "Happy Holidays" -- since, according to him, "You don't ever see the word 'Christmas' anymore'" -- Trump, naturally, claimed this December that all department stores are now saying "Merry Christmas" again.
    That is false. Just as it was false when he said they had all stopped referring to Christmas in the first place.
    Here is the full list of 90 false claims from December 14 through December 27, starting with the ones we haven't previously included in one of these roundups:

    Re: Trump Biggest Whoppers

    The 44 weirdest lines from Donald Trump's first 2020 campaign rally
    1. "You remember, 2016, what year that was, right?"
    I do! I mean, it was only, like, three years ago! And away we go!
    2. "So now we have South Korea, we just finished the big one, $40 billion with Japan on January 15, we are signing a monster, a big beautiful monster, $40 billion to $50 billion to our farmers."
    He's talking about trade. I think.
    3. "I keep saying go buy larger tractors. Go buy larger tractors."
    Same.
    4. "And just in case you didn't know it, Ohio just had the best year economically in the history of your state."
    It's not clear what measurement Trump is using here. As Seth Richardson of the Cleveland Plain Dealer notes, Ohio actually lost jobs in 2019.
    5. "I signed the largest-ever investments in the United States military, $738 billion, and we created this sixth branch of the United States Armed Forces, the Space Force, and everybody is excited about that."
    Mars Awaits!
    6. "We've got new planes, we've got new rockets, new missiles, we've got new everything, and it's either here or coming in."
    "We've got new everything." -- The President of the United States
    7. "They go home to mommy. They're going home to mommy. They are going home to mommy. It's a beautiful sight. Thank you, security. Do we love law enforcement, by the way?"
    This is Trump's response to a protester being escorted out of the rally. And yes, he says the "go home to mommy" thing every time. Why? Because, at root, he is a bully.
    8. "So they don't want me to make that decision. They want me to call up, maybe go over there, let me go over to Congress. Or come on over to the White House, let's talk about it."
    In which Trump says he can't possibly be asked to seek congressional approval for a military strike -- although the power to declare war lies solely in the hands of Congress. Because, the Constitution.
    9. "We didn't have time to call up Nancy, who is not operating with a full deck."
    In which the President suggests the Speaker of the House is operating at some sort of reduced mental capacity. His evidence? Oh, he didn't provide any.
    10. "Nine inches. He buys the smallest shirt collar you can get, and it is loose."
    Trump is talking here about the neck circumference of the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Very normal stuff!
    11. "By the way, did you see, I did nothing wrong. They don't even know what the hell is going on."
    This is about impeachment. And yes, Donald Trump is only the third president in the history of the country to be impeached by the House.
    12. "That is the way the Academy Awards used to look when it was successful. Then they started hitting us all the time, and it became unsuccessful. I love it. I love it, actually."
    So the Academy Awards are no longer successful because, uh, they started attacking Donald Trump? Also, the ratings for the 2019 Academy Awards were up from 2018. So ...
    13. "They write -- if you watched for the last three years, think of it -- and then they get Pulitzer Prizes, but it turned out to be all wrong. How do you do that? They get Pulitzer Prize for being wrong."
    [narrator voice] They weren't wrong.
    14. "I made a deal. I saved a country, and I just heard that the head of that country is now getting the Nobel Peace Prize for saving the country. I said, what? Did I have something do with it? Yes."
    Trump appears to be referencing the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize winner -- Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. Abiy was chosen for the prize "for his efforts to achieve peace and international cooperation, and in particular for his decisive initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighboring Eritrea." Which, I guess, Trump thinks he did and, therefore, should have won the Peace Prize?
    15. "I saved a big war. I saved a couple of them."
    So I assume here Trump is counting the conflict with Iran as a "big war"? Let's, just for the sake of argument, grant that one. What other "big" wars has Trump saved us from?
    16. "And nobody has done it like we've done it. And it is we, it is we. It is not me. It is we."
    No "I" in team!!
    17. "You know, outside, I don't know what this place holds, like 10,000 or 11,000 people, right? Outside you have thousands and thousands of people that want to get in."
    This is a common Trump brag that is rarely based in reality.
    18. "But now I have completed more promises than I have made."
    [cut to egg-headed scientist] This simply isn't possible.
    19. "Did you ever hear me prior to the election talk about Space Force? I never talked about it. We did Space Force. But did we ever speak about it? No."
    Here's how Space Force came about, according to Trump himself in March 2018. "You know, I was saying it the other day -- because we're doing a tremendous amount of work in space -- I said, 'Maybe we need a new force. We'll call it the Space Force," Trump recounted. "And I was not really serious. And then I said, 'What a great idea. Maybe we'll have to do that.' "
    20. "He calls me Mr. President. I've known this guy forever. He used to call me, 'Hey, Don, let's go out to dinner.' You know, before, he'll go, 'Hey, let's go out to dinner.' Now he goes, 'Mr. President, sir, how are you?' "
    So, you are saying, people call you "Mr. President" now that you are President? But they didn't call you that before you were President? Weird!
    21. "So we have the greatest phrase of all time, Make America Great Again, and with all due respect, I'll never end it."
    So it's the greatest phrase of all time now, is it?
    22. "So Crooked Hillary -- wait -- Crooked Hillary --you should lock her up, I will tell you."
    This comment followed a chant of "lock her up" from the crowd. Which is ironic because on Thursday, Trump's Justice Department cleared Clinton of any and all wrongdoing as secretary of state in regard to her work with the Clinton Foundation.
    23. "Oh, I hate to see it."
    You do hate to see it.
    24. "You ever see these crazy polls that come out -- we are doing great in the polls, by the way."
    In Gallup's most recent poll, 45% approved of how Trump is doing his job, while 51% disapproved.
    25. "We are selling that hat like nobody has ever sold a hat before, I will say. So it's great. Good."
    Trump is talking about the "Make America Great Again" hats. Or maybe the "Keep America Great" hats. Either way, those hats are selling "like nobody has ever sold a hat before."
    26. "And he punked out on us, right, this guy."
    "This guy" appears to be former Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich, who refused to endorse Trump's 2016 campaign.
    27. "I have a 95% approval rating. Can you believe it?"
    I cannot. Mostly because it's not clear to me where Trump is getting this number, which he cites a lot. A Fox News poll conducted last month showed him at 85% approval among Republicans.
    28. "They say, they did a poll on this. I think I remember the numbers. All you know is, we won against Abraham, Honest Abe. We won. Fifty-three to 47, do you believe that? Abraham Lincoln."
    This is from a YouGov poll -- and Trump has the numbers right. A majority of Republicans believe he is a better president than Abraham Lincoln. So, well, yeah.
    29. "I don't know if they had polls back then, but Abraham Lincoln -- I always say, I can be more presidential than any candidate that ever ran, than any president, other than maybe Abraham Lincoln when he is wearing his hat."
    No words.
    30. "But I like Abe Lincoln, but we are doing well."
    Yeah, this all checks out.
    31. "I should watch -- you know, I'm supposed to watch, it's like my job, try and watch. Watch the competition. But it's like watching death."
    If you don't think Trump watches the Democratic presidential debates, I have a terrific company named Theranos to tell you about.
    32. "And Biden doesn't know the difference between Iran and Iraq. He has gotten it wrong four times."
    Here's Trump's answer from a 2015 debate when asked about the nuclear triad: "We have to be extremely vigilant and extremely careful when it comes to nuclear. Nuclear changes the whole ballgame. ... The biggest problem we have is nuclear -- nuclear proliferation and having some maniac, having some madman, go out and get a nuclear weapon. That's in my opinion, that is the single biggest problem that our country faces right now." Uh huh.
    33. "I said, we have to have -- where is Hunter -- as a witness and they said, what do you mean, where is Hunter? I said, that's his first name. I have now made his first name, where is. Where is Hunter?"
    So. Hunter Biden's new name, according to Trump, is "Where Is Hunter Biden." OK.
    34. "So where is Hunter? Where the hell are you, Hunter?"
    Where's Wallace at?
    35. "And they just called today, five of the most respected people and they said things that were incredible. They said there's never been anything like this in the church that they can remember."
    Religious leaders called Trump and told him that "there's never been anything like this in the church." And the "this" is the excitement for Trump. Yeah.
    36. "It is being shipped all over the world, while every Democrat running for president wants to shut down our coal mines, we are putting our miners back to work. Dig we must. Dig we must."
    Trump channels Yoda.
    37. "You know, there is a state known as Texas, and I won Texas by a lot, just like I won Ohio by a lot."
    A state known as Texas, you say? Also, Trump won Texas by 9 points in 2016. Mitt Romney won it by 16 points four years earlier.
    38. "And our air and our water right now is cleaner than it's been in 40 years."
    "US air quality is slipping after years of improvement" -- June 2019
    39. "The steel industry was dead, and now it is vibrant."
    Er ...
    40. "And Congressman Van Drew left their party and joined our party. So we've done things that nobody has ever done before, but the Democrats are taking their cues from the socialist Bernie Sanders and that girl."
    Uh. I guess "that girl" that Trump is referring to is New York's Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

    Re: Trump Biggest Whoppers

    Trump makes 86 false claims over two weeks, including whoppers about Bloomberg, Pelosi and Social Security

    President Donald Trump made 31 false claims last week and 55 the week before, including 22 at a campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa, in late January and 13 in an official speech at a community college in Charlotte, North Carolina, in early February.


    Trump spread the dishonesty around a variety of subjects. Over this period stretching from January 27 to February 9, he made 17 false claims about health care, 15 about the economy, 15 about Democrats, and five or more about each of six additional topics: trade, energy, impeachment, China, immigration, and the military.
    We counted five blatant false claims in Trump's State of the Union address. Other claims in that speech were misleading, lacking in key context, or questionable predictions. We don't include such claims in this false-claims-only tally, but you can read fact checks on them here.
    Trump is now averaging about 59 false claims per week for the 31 weeks we have checked at CNN since July 8, so both of these two weeks were better than his usual. They were still, of course, highly dishonest by any non-Trump standard.
    Trump is now up to 1,816 false claims since July 8.

    Re: Trump Biggest Whoppers

    Trump's 'Deep State' conspiracy theory just took a big hit
    President Donald Trump is deeply invested in the idea that there is a "Deep State" embedded within the government bureaucracy -- and centered in the Department of Justice -- which actively worked to defeat him in 2016 and then sought to undermine him once he won the presidency.


    That conspiracy theory, which has never had much merit, suffered a near-fatal blow Friday afternoon when the Department of Justice declined to pursue criminal charges against former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe.

    That decision ends a nearly-two-year investigation into whether McCabe, in his role as a senior official in the FBI, lied to investigators about conversations he had with reporters. McCabe had long insisted that if he had done so it had been purely accidental, and noted that, in his role, he was authorized to speak to the media.
    Trump spent much of the investigation dumping on McCabe, a man who he insisted was, along with former FBI director James Comey, at the center of the "Deep State" conspiracy against him.
    "Deep State" house of cards Trump built to distract from his own problems is collapsing, with the McCabe news Friday the latest structural blow to the crumbling edifice.
