FBI Director James Comey says the FBI and Justice Department have no information to support President Donald Trump’s claims that former President Barack Obama wiretapped him before the election. Comey says no individual can order surveillance of an American. He says courts grant this permission after a rigorous application process.
Trump on Friday stood by his claim that his predecessor wiretapped his phones, suggesting he was the victim of the same sort of surveillance the Obama administration was once alleged to have used to monitor German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s calls.
