Questions still remain unanswered about President Trump's claim he was wiretapped by President Obama. Local legislators are weighing in.

Senator Todd Young says it's a national security issue, and he wants to wait until all evidence has been brought forward.  

The intelligence communities have denied any claims of wiretapping by the previous administration. Those agencies' statements have been echoed by members of both major parties. 

"I've been very encouraged that the intelligence committees that are looking at this matter, it's a classified matter," said Senator Todd Young. "They seem to be in unison, Republicans and Democrats. You know, I think our country is doing the right thing with respect to reviewing it looking into it and acting in a non-partisan fashion."

The house intelligence committee will meet about the wiretapping claims on Monday.
