No evidence Obama wiretapped Don


Washington: Two top US spymasters on Monday trashed President Donald Trump’s allegation that his Trump Tower was wiretapped on the orders of his predecessor Barack Obama, saying there is no evidence to support the claim.

“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,” FBI Director James Comey told the powerful House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

“The Department of Justice has asked me to share with you that the answer is the same for the Department of Justice and all its components, the department has no infor- mation that supports those tweets,” Comey said.         PTI
