BREAKING: Report Says James Comey Expected To Undercut Trump’s Wiretapping Claims

(Before It's News)

James Comey is set to testify before the House Intelligence Committee today at 10 am EST. According to ABC News, Comey will undercut Trump’s wiretapping claims.

From ABC: 

Within the first minutes of a much-anticipated House hearing Monday, FBI Director James Comey is expected to officially undercut the wiretapping allegations that have been promoted by the White House for more than two weeks, according to sources familiar with Comey’s thinking.

Comey’s expected comments to the House Intelligence Committee will mark the U.S. law enforcement community’s first public response to President Donald Trump’s continuing insistence that the Obama administration “wiretapped” or otherwise conducted surveillance of Trump’s presidential campaign. National Security Agency director Mike Rogers will also be testifying.

“It never hurts to say you’re sorry,” a Republican member of the committee, former CIA officer William Hurd, R-Texas, advised Trump today, telling ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos that the commander-in-chief should apologize for his false statements, which have angered key allies such as Great Britain.

But the hearing Monday is about much more than the unfounded accusations first lodged on Twitter –- its main purpose is to look at how Russia interfered with last year’s presidential election, and to understand FBI inquiries into whether any U.S. citizens helped the Russian government.

I expect there will be vindication for Trump on the Russia claims as well. Despite all of the attacks on Trump for his allegations about wiretapping, the claims the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the Presidential campaign are just as flimsy.

Still, it will be interesting to see how Trump reacts.
