Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., left, and Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., arrive for a meeting with CIA Director Mike Pompeo in the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing room on Wednesday, March 15, 2017.

The Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said on Thursday they saw no evidence to support President Donald Trump's claim that the Obamaadministration tapped his phones during the 2016 presidential campaign.

"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 2016," read a statement by Republican Chairman Richard Burr and Senator Mark Warner, the committee's Democratic vice chairman.
