This morning, FBI Director James Comey confirmed what people have known for months, that the FBI was in fact investigating any Russian interference in the 2016 election and if there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.
The Democratic ranking member on the House intel committee, Rep. Adam Schiff, accused the Trump campaign of having colluded with Russia.
But Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy shot that down, noting that Schiff was not a fact witness, that all the fact witnesses, the people who would know, have said there is no evidence of collusion.
FBI Director Comey also said that he had not found any evidence yet to support that President Obama ordered any wiretapping on Trump Tower before the election.
Gowdy said, however, that didn’t end the question.
“I would go ahead and tell you just assume that unless I am dead wrong, there is no evidence to support President Obama wiretapping President Trump,” Gowdy continued. “But the analysis does not end there.”
“You have the dissemination — the felonious dissemination of classified information that will jeopardize 320 million Americans, and I would love it if our friends in the mainstream media would focus on the leak as much as they did the wiretap tweet.”
Gowdy’s point was whether or not there were specific wiretaps ordered by Obama on Trump Tower before the election or other surveillance that picked up Trump or aides (two different questions, the first being the only question answered by Comey), that the dissemination of leaks was meant to harm and was illegal.
