FBI Director Says "No Information" Supporting Trump's 'Wiretaps' Tweets

Tyler Durden's picture

FBI Director Comey chose his words very carefully but explained that there is "no information" to support  US President Trump's tweeted claims that the Obama administration wiretapped his offices.

Comey refused to “characterize” the tweets containing the allegation from President Trump, saying only that “I have no information” that supports the claim.

FBI Director James Comey said there is no evidence to support President Donald Trump’s allegations that the Obama administration “wiretapped” Trump Tower last year, moments after confirming the bureau is probing potential ties between Trump associates and Russia during the 2016 campaign.

“I have no information that supports those tweets and we have looked carefully inside the FBI," Comey told the House Intelligence Committee on Monday.

Comey additionally confirmed that the Department of Justice also found no evidence to support the tweeted claims.

Comey raised a brief smile when asked about Trump's tweeted allegation of "McCarthyism": "I try very hard not to engage in any -isms of any kind."

What's funny is the media and left demands trump stop making this claim and apologize while continuing to claim there are ties between him and Russia that coordinated during the campaign, despite repeated claims by the same people that there is zero evidence that this occurred. Hmmm.

Well that's no surprise, he never accused the FBI of doing the "wire tapping" so Colmey is being honest, the he didn't see the FBI doing it. That doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Trump should keep his thumbs stuck in his belt,away from his smartphone, until he has evidence.

I saw this, It shows it actually started under Bush Jr, and it continued with Obama.

Obama and Dubya in jail would be a start to draining the swamp.

Aren't we told "wiretapping" is not the same as "hacking into a server" by the NYT's?

Yes, choose the questions & answers carefully Deep State  ;-)

NSA is recording everybody's everything...fact.

If they are recording communications of all us plebes, I have to assume that they are watching and recording the communications of EVERY leader on Earth.

Who recorded Flynn's communications, under what authority and how was the information made public ( under who's authority???) ???

Inquiring minds want to know.

The weasel is too busy writing more immunity paperwork for Crooked Clinton Cronies.

What I say now is that there is as much evidence of Trump's ties to Russia as there are for Trump's claim about Obama tapping his phone.

Confirmation bias on parade in both camps.

But note, we do know that HRC and the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars to help push through the sale of American uranium production to the Russian government (google Uranium One).  That is, she allowed a strategic asset sale to Putin himself, since we've been told he's the Russian strongman and nothing happens the world over without his say-so.  Not to mention Russian banks paying Bill Clinton to give speeches.

After reading much of the commentary from various venues over the last couple of months, there is consensus by more than 8 to 2 that COMEY has lost the TRUST of the PUBLIC. Once you have lost TRUST, you are done as a political leader. Just ask BILL CLINTON or OBAMA!!!

More importantly, the FBI has lost its 'MOJO' as an honest organization with integrity.

Again, this is public opinion. 

It is time for new leadership at the FBI!!!!

DRAIN THE "IC" SWAMP Mr. President!!!!

Winston Churchill's picture

What integrity ?

Be honest, the FBI is what other countries call the secret police.Thats why Hoover had dosiers on every politician.

You watched too much Hollyweird my friend.The FBI has alway been a corrupt political agency.

of course the highly sedated comatose`comeyian says so, BUT[t] its highly classified as to where the leaks came from, as the lucidity of his body language prostrates a uremic flinch of spastic`fowl'd wording...

question is :: what half of his ass, doth he speaketh?  

crazzziecanuck's picture

Comey only speaks for the FBI.  It isn't just the FBI that can tap phones.  So can the NSA (which is sucking up everything, anyway) and even the CIA seems able now.

"Mr. Comey, have you heard of any other branch of the American government having performed surveillence on Trump during and after the campaign?"

That's a much more interesting question.

Fuck you Comey. You had all the evidence in the world that Fucktwat Clinton broke the law thousands of times, yet did nothing.

You saying there is no evidence supporting the wiretap, even though much evidence of surveillance of Trump has been found, is proof that it happened.

Trump kept Comey at FBI under orders from his masters.  Comey, like Trump, is hopelessly comprimised.  Just the way the way the tribe has liked it for over 1000 years.

My, my, the whackjob losers need a group to blame for their own failure and irrevelance. I see that Internet technology hasn't changed their choice of scapegoat.

Oh you poor, poor dear.  Your beloved genocidal tribe have been scapegoated for thousands of years and chased out of hundreds upon hundreds of countries for nothing, nothing at all.  Must be genetic.  Oh wait, ashkenazi jews aren't semitic, so they must just hate jews for no reason.  Oops, here is a great book by an ashkenazi about the true nature of the tribe.  Of course this ashkenazi jew was ostracized and labeled an anti-semite by the rest of the tribe for daring to tell the truth.  After all, every scapegoat needs a don't snitch or be ostracized religious laws because, because, they are innocent...

Thanks for the tip.

I didn't expect anything but a denial from that weasel.  Hit the road loser!

Vageling's picture

Accept this isn't a denial. It's a non-answer. He has no information. To put it simple, he's saying he has no clue whether there was or wasn't a tap. And then refers to the DOJ that they found no evidence.

It has this whole 'the DOJ has no evidence and I haven't got the slighest clue but I'm indirectly trying to suggest that 1+1=2. I ain't saying no directly because that may bite me in the ass later' smell to it. A political non-answer that leaves a lot of room for interpretation.

Lyin', fake news Trump. Everything from now on coming from Trump is suspect. What a fucking President, I bet he quits before his term is up.

The fact you believe Comey says a lot. You're incredibly naive or stupid. Maybe both.

crossroaddemon's picture

Nobody believes anybody. That's the point. I don't believe Trump, Comey, Obama, CNN, Wikileaks, or fucking Alex Jones. We have to assume they are ALL compromised. Yes, that means giving up your precious belief that the system can be made to work the way you think it should.

Except Hillary.

You can believe Hillary.

Except the stuff she says publicly or under oath.

roadhazard's picture

Comey just confirmed what I knew almost as soon as I saw the tweet. It says a lot about you fuckers that you will defend Trump even against the obvious so fuck the fuck off.

Bay of Pigs's picture

I am not defending Trump. We all KNOW that everyone is being spied on. That FACT is not even disputable. Comey is clearly lying on this issue just like he did when refusing to have Clinton arrested and prosecuted for her countless crimes. Who are you kidding?f

Like any of the others are going to do any better...?

Jesus! Full of bitching, whining, complaining, and no remedies. Just the sickening same-o D vs R crap.

One would think Americans would get tired of wash, rinse, repeat but apparently not,,, which is why the rest of the world are passing us up.
