    Same here...

    It would be funny if not so sad at how the Trump surrogates drown in their leaders ever deepening pile of shiite.

    Nope, don't have much love for The Donald either. But, he's the president and I'll support as much as possible. I just wish that he'd pull his head out, stop tweeting, and work to make this country better.

    Oh yea... I would believe msn and the Washington post (not). Think it's a little early yet to come to a conclusion.

    It would be hard to believe Donald would make such a statement if he were not 100% sure..
    But I do believe that Obama or any president could order a wire tap and keep it a big secret..
    Kinda like area 51....We all know its there but we don't know for sure whats going on...

    The comment came from the Director of the FBI not MSN. Would Fox be more to your liking?

    "Comey: Have no info that supports Trump's wiretapping tweets"

    I knew we would get to a conspiracy pretty quick.
    (and a bonus point for referencing Area 51)

    Yeah, because Trump doesn't have a history of getting himself in trouble by saying things without the evidence to back it up.

    Read more carefully Comey didn't say "there's no evidence of Trump's accusation that Obama tapped his phones." just the fact that he used the very specific wording that his investigation was limited to "inside the FBI" added to my suspicion that there is something to it.

    He continues that way - not saying there is no evidence of giving any detail to rule out, but more specifically saying, ""I have no information that supports those tweets."

    The way Comey is answers question is the way that tells a lawyer, "he just avoided giving a complete answer, so I need to ask that question a different way."

    As if the FBI will hand over evidence.

    As noted above, the Donald continues to be a far better result than Hildabeast as POTUS

    There you go. Cling to that thread of hope.
    Let me know when Trump produces evidence, other than a tweet, that it happened. Right now everyone has left him twisting in the wind...

    No doubt. But that isn't the question at hand.

    The question is did he lie, is he nuts, or can he produce evidence that no one else has?

    Maybe you forgot, but Hillary lost the election back in January. She's no longer part of the discussion.

    I will leave you guys to it now.

    Try not to hurt yourself contorting to rationalize what the evidence clearly shows.

    So why in January did the MSM report a FISA request was granted on Trump?

    How would Russia interfering in our election be different than Obama interfering in Netanyahu's election? With taxpayer money to boot.

    He weasel worded it so as no to have committed perjury when evidence shows up. He's saying it's not impossible; just that "I have no information" ; not that it doesn't exist.

    I noticed he wasn't more categorical for example " I know of no evidence to support"

    You can't get here from there!
    Without knowing anything about the extent of the investigation so far, his statement is pretty meaningless.

    There's that context thing again.

    Ain't that the truth?

    Just imagine how much more smoothly these first months would have gone without the stupid tweets. Just Trump coolly going about keeping his campaign promises. Wow.
