On Monday, FBI Director James Comey testified that he had “no information” to back up Trump’s wiretapping claims.
Rep. Adam Schiff asked Comey about the wiretapping claims “namely that President Obama wiretapped his phones.”
Comey replied: “With respect to the President’s tweets…I have no information that supports those tweets.”
The testimony was in front of a public hearing of the House Intel Committee set to discuss Russian interference in the last election. Comey confirmed that an investigation is indeed taking place but gave few details.
