 TRUMP LIED IN WIRETAPPING TWEET!!!
 Reply with quote  

FBI confirms Trump-Russia inquiry, finds no evidence of Trump wiretap claims



"COMEY SAID NO PRESIDENT COULD ORDER A WIRETAPPING OPERATION AGAINST ANYONE."





(CNN) FBI Director James Comey said Monday he had no information to support claims by President Donald Trump that he was wiretapped by his predecessor, Barack Obama.

"I have no information that supports those tweets," Comey told the House Intelligence Committee, adding that the Justice Department, along with the FBI, had no information to support the allegations.

Comey said that no president could order a wiretapping operation against anyone.



Comey also publicly confirmed for the first time that his agency is investigating alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign and whether any crimes may have been committed during last year's election campaign.

"That includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia's efforts," Comey said in his opening statement to the committee.



The hearing, which also features testimony from National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers, could shed light on the state of FBI investigations into the extent of Russian meddling in the election campaign. Republicans hope Comey will state that there is no evidence of collusion between Trump aides and officials from Moscow, a move that could begin to break up a cloud of Russian intrigue that has stifled the early weeks of the administration. But Democrats say there is circumstantial evidence of wrongdoing that needs to be probed.


Republican Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes said the hearing would have several areas of focus -- the extent to which Russian intervened in the US election and whether any campaign officials conspired in those efforts. He restated that there was not a wiretap against Trump Tower, but did not rule out other kinds of surveillance against the Trump campaign. Nunes also said the hearing would seek information about who has leaked classified information linked to the issue or Russian election interference.

Republicans on the committee pressed Comey on how ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn's name became public, or was unmasked, in news reports about his conversations with Russian ambassador to Washington Sergey Kislyak -- apparently in telephone calls picked up by intelligence sweeps targeting Moscow's embassy.

Flynn's failure to tell the truth about those calls led to the request for his resignation. But Republicans say that the leaking of his name was a criminal act in contravention of laws that mask the identify of US citizens caught up in surveillance operations targeting foreign nationals.

Comey would not talk Monday about specific cases or confirm newspaper reports, but said that leaks about classified activity were "terrible."

South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy read out the names of Obama administration officials, including former national security adviser Susan Rice and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, asking whether they would have had access to the name of a unmasked person. Comey said that their positions would likely allow them such information but did not comment on the individual cases.

"The felonious dissemination of classified material most definitely is a crime," Gowdy warned.

The top Democrat on the committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, said it was not yet known whether the Russian operation was aided by US citizens, "including people associated with the Trump campaign."

"Many of Trump's campaign personnel, including the President himself, have ties to Russia and Russian interests. This is, of course, no crime," Schiff said.


"On the other hand, if the Trump campaign, or anybody associated with it, aided or abetted the Russians, it would not only be a serious crime, it would also represent one of the most shocking betrayals of our democracy in history."

Schiff related alleged links between people close to Trump and Russia, including his former campaign aide Paul Manafort, using the President's words during the campaign and publicly available information contained in a dossier drawn up by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, large portions of which have yet to be corroborated by CNN.

"Is it possible that all of these events and reports are completely unrelated. ... Yes, it is possible," Schiff said.

"It is also possible, maybe more than possible, that they are not coincidental, not disconnected and not unrelated and that the Russians used the same techniques to corrupt US persons that they employed in Europe and elsewhere. We simply don't know, not yet, and we owe it to the country to find out."

Rogers said under questioning from the top Democrat on the committee that there was no information that the Obama administration requested the British surveillance agency GCHQ to conduct eavesdropping on Trump, as stated in a Fox News report that has been cited by the White House. He also said that he had not personally done so.

"No, sir, and nor would I, that would be expressly against the construct of the Five Eyes agreement that has been in place for decades."

Trump tried to shift attention away from the wiretapping claims in a series of Monday morning tweets.

"James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!" Trump wrote shortly after 6:30 a.m. ET, followed by: "The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!"

The controversy over the wiretapping claims was unleashed by stunning early morning tweets from the President at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida two weeks ago. He drew parallels to Watergate and McCarthyism and said Obama was a "Bad (or sick) guy!" for ordering surveillance of his New York residence -- allegations the former president quickly denied through a spokesman.


Democrats were quick to jump on Comey's remarks to hike pressure on Trump over his allegations, arguing that the President's conduct had "severely damaged" his credibility.

"President Trump owes the American people and President Obama more than just an explanation, but an apology," said Democratic Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer.

"He should admit he was wrong, stop the outlandish tweets, and get to work on behalf of this country."

Nothing out of context. Sweet Potato Hitler tweeted something, Comey was asked if it was true, he said NO.

Don't be stupid.

At this point, if you believe anything Comey says, I'm not the one that's stupid.
You probably get your news from CNN, too.

CNN isn't the only source for my info. My info on this, however, came DIRECTLY from the testimony, not any news source.

Which one of us looks stupid, again?

Pro Tip: Its you.

My point was, why would you believe a word he says? His testimony is meaningless and self serving. The biggest scandal in Washington is that he still has a job.

Guys -

Notice how despite there being no evidence of collusion in the campaign, no one wants to drop the investigation - yet as soon as people say there's no evidence of wiretapping you all flock to post this stuff?

It's truly laughable how much confirmation bias exists around here. Been guilty of it myself, but at the moment you lefties are the champs. It reminds me why I stopped all political commenting. Going back to that resolution. If you want me, I will be somewhere else grin3.gif

I agree with you AWM.I'm quite bias,but then it's so damn easy to attack Trump and his aides.I also totally agree there is no evidence of collusion,but he is under investigation and it started back in July.Remember all the bias at Trump rallies and those famous words "Lock her up".Now the shoe is on the other foot.So how about a chorus from these same assholes of "Lock him up"

Now,the one thing Trump has going for him over if Hillary would of won is his party has control of both houses and the DOJ,even though Sessions has recuse himself from any investigations into the connections between Russia and the Trump campaign,his aides are going to be in charge if Trump should be prosecuted or not.If Hillary had won she would of been persecuted.Trump will not.

To be totally fair we need and independent investigation.

Hope to see you around the boards AWM.Peace happy4.gif
