‘I Have No Information That Supports Those Tweets’: Comey Shoots Down Trump’s ‘Wiretapping’ Claims

On Monday, Representative Adam Schiff asked FBI Director James Comey whether President Trump‘s claims that his predecessor had wiretapped Trump Tower were true.

“I have no information that supports those tweets,” said Comey flatly. “We have looked carefully inside the FBI.”

Comey added that it also held true for the Department of Justice. “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.”
