The Justice Department says it has complied with congressional requests for information related to any surveillance during the 2016 election.

The department had requested an extension earlier this week to respond to congressional inquiries following President Donald Trump's unproven Twitter claim that his predecessor, Barack Obama, had wiretapped Trump during the campaign.

Members of Congress said they wanted any evidence from the Justice Department.

The department said in a one-sentence statement Friday that it has complied with the request. But it did not comment further on what information, if any, was provided.

Senate intelligence committee leaders said Thursday that they had seen no indications to support Trump's assertions.
