WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, asked the Justice Department this weekend to publicly reject President Trump’s assertion that President Barack Obama ordered the tapping of Mr. Trump’s phones, senior American officials said on Sunday. Mr. Comey has argued that the highly charged claim is false and must be corrected, they said, but the department has not released any such statement.

Mr. Comey, who made the request on Saturday after Mr. Trump leveled his allegation on Twitter, has been working to get the Justice Department to knock down the claim because it falsely insinuates that the F.B.I. broke the law, the officials said.

It will be interesting to see what Justice does as it will say much about the validity of that agency. Do they follow conspiracy theory for Trump or are they still into Justice. Hell, the President can't even tap phones.

Trump was likely joking!

Like the "punch him in the face" and the "I could shoot someone on X Avenue in NY, and still not lose any voters".

One must learn to not take him literally, when he is often speaking figuratively. Not that hard to learn! Just don't accuse me of defending him. I'm not. I am simply "calling 'em like I see 'em".
I see....so you see lying as joking in order to justify your man crush.

Like I said before.... no man crush. Out of the 17 candidates in the Primary, he was at or nearly at the BOTTOM of my choice - hello?!
I use this statement due to your continuous and blatant defense of anything he says or does and endless credit given for positives he has nothing to do with indicating a level of blind devotion counter to the realities.

closed loop thinking says:

"It has to end my way or the whole thing is rigged"
