FBI Director James Comey announced that he has no proof supporting the accusations by President Trump against Barack Obama who allegedly wiretapped his 2016 campaign headquarters in Manhattan's Trump Tower. Comey announced that during the Congress hearing, Reuters reported.
"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.
Besides, FBI Director James Comey on Monday confirmed for the first time that the bureau is investigating possible ties between Republican Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia as Moscow sought to influence the 2016 U.S. election.
Comey and Admiral Mike Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, made clear that their investigation of Moscow and November's U.S. elections could last for months.
Comey gave no details of the classified investigation and said the fact that it exists does not mean charges would be filed.
