Transcript: Justice Department Hands Over Report on Trump Wiretap Claims

The Department of Justice has submitted its report on President Trump's allegations that former President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower ahead of the election.

Both House and Senate committees  had requested  any information related to Trump's claims.

We don't know what the report says.

But House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes  said his committee  "is satisfied" the department "fully complied" with its request.

The department was supposed to provide evidence  by March 13 , but it requested more time.  The wiretapping controversy started earlier this month when  Trump tweeted  his allegations.

The leaders of both the House and Senate intelligence committees said  earlier this week  they hadn't seen  any evidence  to support Trump's claims.  SEE MORE: Trump Tried To Bond With Merkel Over Unproven Wiretapping Claims Nunes said his committee was still waiting for the information it requested from the CIA and FBI.

On Monday, the House Intelligence Committee will  hold a hearing  on Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election.

FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers are expected to testify.

The Senate Intelligence Committee  will hold a hearing  on March 30.
