    We Having Nothing so SWAG

    FBI Director Comey: Justice Dept. has no information that supports Trump’s tweets alleging he was wiretapped by Obama


    “Let me be clear,” he said. “We know there was not a wiretap on Trump Tower. However, it’s still possible that other surveillance activities were used against President Trump and his associates.” - Gee ya think ... how else did Hillary learn about a 'server server at Trump Tower' to send out a tweet about it

    In his opening statement, Schiff said: “We will never know whether the Russian intervention was determinative in such a close election. Indeed it is unknowable in a campaign in which so many small changes could have dictated a different result. More importantly, and for the purposes of our investigation, it simply does not matter. What does matter is this: the Russians successfully meddled in our democracy, and our intelligence agencies have concluded that they will do so again.”

    He added: “Most important, we do not yet know whether the Russians had the help of U.S. citizens, including people associated with the Trump campaign. Many of Trump’s campaign personnel, including the president himself, have ties to Russia and Russian interests. This is, of course, no crime. On the other hand, if the Trump campaign, or anybody associated with it, aided or abetted the Russians, it would not only be a serious crime, it would also represent one of the most shocking betrayals of our democracy in history.”

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    “There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.”

    Gee...maybe they are focusing on the word "wiretap" because that is the specific accusation made by the President? You think maybe that has something to do with it??

    Didn't the FBI and/or DOJ have info that Trump had communications with some Russian officials prior to the election? How did they know this if it wasn't due to wiretapping?

    Maybe they just threw it out there for the hell of it?

    Their claim is that they were 'tapping the Russian side of the conversation.

    The rule is, if they capture an American in that tap, it's supposed to be thrown out.
