Comey: FBI Has No Evidence Obama Wiretapped Trump Tower

FBI Director James Comey confirmed Monday that his agency is investigating whether Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election.

HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE - Committee Democrats tried to force the committee to ask the Department of Justice to produce records of its investigation into whether Trump or his campaign had ties to Russian Federation, but panel Republicans blocked the effort.

"Is there an exception in the law for current or former USA officials requesting anonymity?"

Most of all, the opening of the congressional inquiry on Monday took the USA deeper into uncharted territory, an investigation into whether a presidential election campaign actively cooperated with a foreign adversary to win, and whether the beneficiary of that intervention was now seeking to cover up that collusion.

The Trump administration has denied that the president's campaign cooperated with Russian Federation before the election.

"President Trump owes the American people and President Obama more than just an explanation, but an apology", said Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat.

Under questioning from the committee's top Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff, he also publicly contradicted a series of tweets from Trump that declared the Republican candidate's phones had been ordered tapped by President Barack Obama during the campaign.

"In the universe of possible motives of felonious dissemination of classified material, we could rule out wanting to help the intelligence communities and the law enforcement communities those are two motives that are gone now". Schiff said he wanted to find out what Trump aides knew about Russian activities and when.

Comey also confirmed there is an active investigation looking into alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election. Trump has also deflected attention to the release of information, saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation should focus on investigating that.

It was unusual, said Comey, for the FBI to confirm or deny the existence of an investigation. Comey placed a criminal investigation at the doorstep of the White House and said agents would pursue it "no matter how long that takes".

Rep. Trey Gowdy used the House Intelligence Hearing Monday to accuse Obama administration officials, including the former president, of leaking classified information with no proof. Asked about the flap, Trump said: "That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox, and so you shouldn't be talking to me, you should be talking to Fox. OK?" "So I think it is going to be quite a lot of skepticism about the fact that this man has spoken out and said that he has not seen any evidence", Machon said.

Accusations of Russian Federation connections have dogged the Trump administration since he took office in January. It's the first time Comey and Rogers will testify publicly since Trump took office.

The Obama administration in late December retaliated against Russia, imposing sanctions over the cyberattacks even as Russian officials continue to deny any involvement in the hacks.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions then recused himself from any investigations into the Trump campaign following accusations that he misled senators about his contact with Kislyak during his January confirmation hearing.

The FBI has been investigating links between the Trump team and Russian officials since July, Comey told the House panel ― meaning the probe was underway during the height of an alleged effort by Moscow to tip the scale in favor of Trump during the 2016 election.
