Monday, FBI Director James Comey testified before the House Intelligence Committee that he had no information to support President Trump’s contentions that he was wiretapped by President Obama at Trump Tower. That accusation came courtesy of Trump’s Twitter account two weeks ago, sparking outrage across the media and in intelligence circles. Comey stated, “I have no information that supports those tweets, and we have looked fully within the FBI.” He added that the Department of Justice had no information supporting such tweets, either.

He stated that “no president” could order a wiretap, because all electronic surveillance works through the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act courts.
