FBI Director James Comey shot down President Donald Trump’s claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower in the run-up to the election.

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

He added that the Justice Department had also looked for evidence to support the president’s allegation and could not find any. Comey said that a president cannot unilaterally order a wiretap.

President Trump’s accusation that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower was always a red herring.

I Director James Comey confirmed to the House Intelligence Committee on Monday that the FBI is investigating Russia’s meddling in the presidential election, including possible links between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Comey described it as a "counterintelligence investigation" but said it will "also include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed." He noted that the FBI usually does not comment on active counterintelligence investigations but said he was authorized to do so in this case because of the extraordinary public interest.

The top Democrat on the committee also said there was no evidence to support Trump’s claim. They spoke a day before their panel holds its first public hearing on alleged Russian attempts to interfere in last year’s election.
