Comey Reportedly Refutes Trump’s Wiretapping Claim
It didn’t happen. That’s what FBI Director James Comey reportedly said of President Donald Trump’s Twitter outburst alleging that “Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower” before the election. Sources say Comey’s asked the Justice Department to publicly reject Trump’s claim, which echoes a Breitbart story published Friday. James Clapper, intelligence chief during the election, emphatically denied it, and former President Obama’s spokesman called the accusation “simply false.” The dispute may now go to Congress, which Trump has asked to probe the purported bugging while investigating Russian interference in November’s election.
