At Monday’s Select Intelligence Committee hearing on Congress’ Russia investigation, FBI Director James Comey said, point blank, that nobody — not the FBI, not the Department of Justice, not anyone in the intelligence community — has any evidence to support Trump’s bizarre allegations.
Comey spoke at a House of Representatives Select Intelligence Committee hearing on possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
With respect to the president’s tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets, and we have looked carefully inside the FBI. The Department of Justice has asked me to share with you that the answer is the same for the Department of Justice and all its components, the department has no information that supports those tweets.
In the same hearing, the chairman of the committee, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), said, “Let me be clear: We know there was not a wiretap on Trump Tower.”
