Law enforcement officials have found no evidence supporting President Donald Trump’s assertions that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 election, FBI Director James Comey said Monday.
“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,” Comey said during a House intelligence committee hearing on Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election. “We have looked carefully inside the FBI.”
Comey added that the Justice Department hasn’t turned up any evidence backing Trump’s claims, either. “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,” he said.
