Having thrown the Justice Department under the bus yesterday, it appears the FBI Director has not managed to pass the hot potato of blame/responsibility for Trump’s wiretap accusations. As The Hill reports, a White House spokeswoman on Monday said she “doesn’t think” Trump accepts Comey’s denial of the president’s claims.
As a reminder, a New York Times report Sunday said Comey asked the Justice Department to publicly reject the president’s claims. Senior U.S. officials told the Times that Comey has said the president’s wiretapping allegations are false and asked the Justice Department on Saturday to publicly correct the record. The FBI and DOJ declined to comment to the newspaper.
But, as The Hill reports, it appears President Trump is not buying Comey’s denial that former President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the campaign.
“No, I don’t think he does,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

She said the president “wants the truth to come out to the American people and he is asking that it be done through the House Intelligence Committee and that that be the process that we go through.“
Additionally, The Hill reports that Trump aide Kellyanne Conway also called for Comey to share any information he might have on Trump’s allegations.
“If Mr. Comey has something he’d like to say I’m sure we’re all willing to hear it,” Conway said on Fox News. “All I saw was a published news report. I didn’t see a statement from him. I don’t know what Mr. Comey knows.
“If he knows, of course he can issue a statement,” Conway said. “We know he’s not shy.”
In the meantime the pushback against Trump’s accusation continues to grow with increasingly more republicans now rejecting the president’s claims, and moments ago House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz told CBS that he has seen nothing that backs Trump’s wiretap claims.
