Rep. Devin Nunes' made major headlines today when he revealed that Trump Tower had been under surveillance. But these statements appear to contradict statements made by FBI Director James Comey made very recently:
House Intelligence chair, Devin Nunes dropped a bombshell today when he confirmed that President-elect Trump and his transition team were surveilled from Election Day to Inauguration Day. He also said that he put in a call to FBI Director, Comey and has yet to hear back.
Did FBI Director, Comey perjure himself after he just testified under oath in front of the House Intelligence Committee claiming that there was no truth to Trump’s wiretap claims? Comey was very careful how he worded things…looks like he’s splitting hairs…
Schiff: “Director Comey, I want to begin by attempting to put to rest several claims made by the President about his predecessor mainly that President Obama wiretapped his phones. So that we can be precise, I want to refer you to exactly what the President said and ask you whether there is any truth to it.
First the President claimed that ‘Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my wires tapped in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!’.
Director Comey, was the President’s statement that Obama had his wires tapped in Trump Tower a true statement?”
Comey: “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. And we have looked carefully inside the FBI.”
So does the House Intelligence Committee have information that Comey does not? It seems unlikely. Assuming Nunes' revelation is true, Comey either lied or was very careful with his wording. After all, Trump's tweet can be up for interpretation, as it was vague enough to be interpreted many ways.
Assuming Nunes' revelation is correct, Comey either lied or was very careful with his wording. After all, Trump's tweet was hardly specific.
Here is video of Nunes saying he doesn’t know whether the FBI will comply. He has placed a call to Director, Comey and he’s waiting to hear back from him.
