The leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said on Thursday they found no evidence to US President Donald Trump's claims that his conversations were wiretapped by the Obama administration.

"Based on the information available to us, we see no indications that Trump Tower was the subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government either before or after Election Day," said Richard Burr, the Republican chairman of the committee, and his Democratic vice chairman, Mark Warner, in a joint statement.

In an interview to Fox News on Wednesday, Trump said he would provide evidence "very soon" that his accusations are correct, but added that "wiretap covers a lot of different things."
