Comey: Neither The FBI or DOJ Have Any Evidence to Back Trump's Wiretapping Claims

Testifying in front of the House Intelligence Committee Monday FBI Director James Comey said after a long search, neither the Bureau nor the Department of Justice has any evidence President Obama had now President Donald Trump wiretapped during the 2016 presidential campaign. 

"With respect to the President's tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets," Comey said. "We [FBI and DOJ] have no information that supports them." 

"No president could [unilaterally order a wiretap of anyone]," he continued. 

Nearly three weeks ago, President Trump sent out the following tweets, which Comey referred to during his testimony.

Last week top Democrats and Republicans on the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, in addition to Speaker Paul Ryan, also said they have no evidence to back up President Trump's wiretapping claims.

The White House maintains President Trump was referring to overall surveillance, not specifically to wiretapping.
