FBI Director Refuses to Tell Congress If He Discussed Wiretaps with Obama (VIDEO)
In a move counter to what FBI Director James Comey has said in the past, he just told Congress the FBI is investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 US election.
His claim was he is making an exception in the interest of the greater good. In other words, the public deserves to know.
Comey can be difficult to read, as some say he’s a partisan Democrat hack. With the loss of the election by Hillary Clinton, Leftists feel otherwise.
Comey has denied allegations by President Trump that former President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower. Frankly, Comey doesn’t have the security clearance to know that definitely.
Further, Comey knows there are many more ways Obama could have provided surveillance on Donald Trump.
One thing is for sure: Trump’s phone calls were intercepted.
Aside from the obvious question of how the media got information on private phone calls that President Trump made to foreign heads of state, another question begged an answer.
Thus, during his testimony, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) asked FBI Director Comey who would have access to the leaked phone call transcript between General Michael Flynn and White House officials including Susan Rice and Barack Obama.
Comey refused to answer as to whether or not he briefed President Obama on the Flynn call.
James Comey seems to want to have his cake and eat it too.
My hope is the first question gets asked, which I repeat: Why aren’t we investigating the obvious leak to President Trump’s phone conversations with heads of state?
Why aren’t we investigating the obvious leak to President Trump’s phone conversations with heads of state?
Surely Comey can’t deny those leaks took place, ergo, somebody had President Trump under surveillance. So if the FBI wishes to have any credibility, Comey’s first course of action should be to root out the traitor. By the way, this point seems to have gone unnoticed on the media.
Comey should be forced to answer how he can definitively say that President Trump wasn’t under surveillance by Obama, when Comey isn’t cleared to know this? Why would Comey behave so recklessly, commenting about something he couldn’t possibly know about.
