James Comey Intervenes, Tells DOJ to Claim Trump is Wrong on Wiretapping

FBI Director James Comey shocked voters across America when he told the Justice Department to shut down President Donald Trump’s claim that Trump Tower was wiretapped while Barack Obama was in office.
How can you do that, Comey? With no investigation? No witnesses called? Nothing in writing? Just who is Comey, anyway?
If, in fact, the Obama administration did surveillance on the opposition party during the election, wouldn’t that be a massive constitutional overreach? Isn’t that why Nixon had to resign? And Comey wants the DOJ to dismiss his claims?
Something is not right, and I am calling on Americans to call their Congressional representatives and ask for Comey to resign.
How many of you trust his decision-making right now? How many of you trust Obama?
From The Hill:
Senior American officials told The New York Times on Sunday that Comey has said the president’s wiretapping allegations are not true and asked the Justice Department on Saturday to publicly correct the record.
The report comes after President Trump, in a series of early Saturday tweets, claimed President Obama had ordered the wiretapping of Trump Tower.
The FBI and the DOJ declined to comment to the Times.
Comey wants the Justice Department to deflate Trump’s claim because there is no evidence to support it, the Times reported, and it insinuates that Comey’s FBI broke the law, the officials told the paper.
