House Committee Chairman, a Republican, says that there is no evidence that Obama wiretapped Donald Trump. James Comey called to testify next week. Update!

Courtesy of CNN: 

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said Wednesday that neither he nor the ranking Democrat on the committee have seen any evidence that then-President Barack Obama wiretapped Donald Trump last year, and want the Justice Department to respond to their requests for information by March 20. 

"We don't have any evidence that that took place and in fact I don't believe -- just in the last week of time, the people we've talked to -- I don't think there was an actual tap of Trump Tower," Nunes said at a news conference, in reference to the baseless claim originally made by Trump several weeks ago.
"Clearly the president was wrong." Yeah, no shit Sherlock!

Just like we all knew, Donald Trump accused President Obama of illegally tapping his phones with no supporting evidence whatsoever.

He fucking lied, and now everybody is going to know it.

James Comey for his part was supposed to spill the beans today, but apparently didn't.
That lack of cooperation frustrated Senator Lindsey Graham who said this:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Wednesday that he'll move to subpoena any documents tied to President Trump's claim that he was wiretapped during the campaign if he doesn't hear back from FBI Director James Comey later in the day. 

"He hasn't answered that letter. If he doesn't answer it today, I'm going to go to the chairman of the [Judiciary] Committee, Sen. [Chuck] Grassley [R-Iowa], and seek his support to subpoena," Graham said during a Fox News radio interview. 

This was also included in that CNN report at the top:

FBI Director James Comey will testify at their March 20 hearing and that there will be a second hearing in the committee March 28.

THAT will put Comey in the hot seat and he will not be able to avoid answering questions under oath about any FBI investigations into Donald Trump or his associates.

Yeah I think THIS might be part of the reason why Trump leaked those tax returns yesterday.

This and the fact that the new GOP bill is taking healthcare away from 24 million Americans.

Oh and did I mention that the investigation into his ties with Russia is still ongoing?

Yep, the noose is just getting tighter.

Update: Unbelievably Donald Trump just doubled down again:

President Trump on Wednesday defended his unsubstantiated claim that former president Barack Obama ordered surveillance on his phones at Trump Tower in New York during last fall's campaign. 

Trump again offered no evidence to support his wiretapping accusation, but he maintained in an interview with Fox News Channel that information would soon be revealed that could prove him right. 

“Wiretap covers a lot of different things,” Trump said. “I think you're going to find some very interesting items coming to the forefront over the next two weeks.” 

I swear this guy is completely incapable of every admitting that he made a mistake.

Shovelful after shovelful she just keeps digging himself in deeper.

      Breaking news:
      Federal Court In Hawaii Blocks Donald Trump's New Travel Ban

      A federal judge in Hawaii has placed a nationwide hold on key aspects of President Donald Trump’s second attempt at a ban on travel ― a scaled-back version that targeted all non-visa holders from six Muslim-majority countries, as well as a halt on the U.S. refugee resettlement program ― just hours before the new restrictions were to take effect.

      Watson gave short shrift to the Trump administration’s argument that the new restrictions applied to a “small fraction” of the world’s 50 predominantly Muslim nations ― and thus could not be read to discriminate Muslims specifically.

      “The illogic of the Government’s contentions is palpable,” Watson wrote. “The notion that one can demonstrate animus toward any group of people only by targeting all of them at once is fundamentally flawed.”

      Decency 1...Trump 0 Yet again. LOSER!

      So much violent talk and imagery directed towards the POTUS on an daily basis from your followers on this blog. One can only assume that since you continue to publish it, that you not only condone- but encourage it. Is this correct?

      You do realize the public threats PBO had to put up with, and still does, from your kind? Is this correct?

      8:54 is thin skinned when the shoe is on the other foot. The difference is we don't have to lie and make things up about Chump. The script writes itself!!!!

  2. No the president was not wrong.
    The president of the US LIED to the American people. He is a serial liar. If he speaks or tweets, he lies.
    There. Fixed it.

    1. And he will let his lies stand unless he's called out. Then he'll say he's joking, double down, or try to change the subject. Trump doubles down more than most liars since his money intimidates so many people.

      He lies as easy as taking a breath of air. Perhaps Sarah can recommend a great guy to maintain and fuel up Airforce One.

    I so wish someone would walk up to Trump and knock him on his fat ass for the world to see on video! But, he's such a chicken shit he hides out in Trump Towers and is rarely seen in public. And, when he is out he is layered w/his personal security as well as the security folks for which the taxpayers cover the cost.

    Trump needs to be impeached!!! He is not qualified, able or smart enough to be potus and he shows us those facts daily!

    So, I just saw him (Trump, who else?)say on CBS that some very interesting items are going to come to the forefront in the next few weeks. He was talking about his phone wiretap claims.

    So, I guess he and his minions are busy making the "evidence" in their "santa's workshop".

    If there is evidence why is it not already out there? Why wait weeks?

    1. He's making a list of shiny lies to let loose to distract from the real problems.

      Healthcare for the few and the wealthy.

      Tax cuts for the few and the wealthy.

      No longer protecting the people and environment from the abuses for profit of the few and the wealthy.

      Every time Donald Trump lets loose with some even more ridiculous claim it is intended to draw our eyes away from the ball to the new shiny object.

      Two pages of old tax returns? Who gives a shit? 24 MILLION people are going to lose their health care.

      What did Michael Moore say in "Where to Invade Next?" 500,000 people a year die simply because they don't have health insurance? Millions of AMERICANS are dying because they are too poor to afford medical care.

      Make *that* "GREAT", you fucking orange dumbass.

    Noise. There is so much already that should have unseated this POTUS that I truly feel that there is no lynchpin, nothing that will actually crumble this administration.

    Also too, this in today, head of the EPA is recommending lessening the exhaustive output of gasoline powered engines because, ya know, it's costing out car companies too much to be in compliance.

    Welcome to the new world.

    Just another little thing that's been missed in the noise of Trump Tweets and Healthcare raping...

    I don’t know what their end game is, but I saw a conservative (Shiff?) on PBS with talking points that it was a given that Obama was wire tapping trump during campaign and listened in on conversations, again without any evidence. No one questioned that they were tapping the russians and trump et al got caught.

    Interestingly enough he gave the same talking point that wire taps consist of many things and said no one believes anything Comey says.

    Also said that little donnie paid more taxes than Obama, Bernie and some other people, how would he know if he hasn’t seen the tax returns.

    All I can think of, is their defense is to keep smearing Obama and keep hinting they will produce the evidence, but never actually do it like the birth certificate myth he dragged on for years.

    "THAT will put Comey in the hot seat and he will not be able to avoid answering questions under oath about any FBI investigations into Donald Trump or his associates."

    Uh, no. You are a wisher and not a thinker aren't you? The FBI can is not going to publicly provide the kind of comments you are wishing for during an open investigation, if there is one.

    "Yep, the noose is just getting tighter."

    You have been using that violent term a lot. Are you going to keep using it the next four years? Maybe the next four years after that? Can you imaging the outcry from, well you, if that term was used against Obama?

    Bannon wants to tear down US government and replace it with his own which of course would be another government/dictatorship. Modeled after Putin of course.

    I have tweeted often to the FBI account. I've never seen in all my 60+ years FBI/Comey meddle so much in politics. I used to respect FBI but not anymore. ANYthing under Trump and his appointees obviously can no longer be trusted. It's sad to me that America really has become an Idiocracy and we have a reality tv show host and pageant pussy grabber as the most powerful leader in the free world.

    I will always continue to #resist and thank god that idiot with her uneducated ballistic kids in Wasilla are no longer relevant.

    Will Trump take Fox "News" with him when he goes down?

  23. Elliegrl6:24 AM

    Everyone needs to go read the great Louise Mensch (@louisemensch) British ex-MP & John Schindler (@20committee) Ex-NSA spook on Twitter, and then read her blog Patribiotics. I didn't like Comey either until I read the full story. Comey CAN'T talk or he's impeding an active investigation into treason. He met w/a handful lawmakers & Feinstein spoke to reporters after & basically Glomared (I cannot confirm/deny.) Reporters who have followed her said she had the same shaken, grave look when she announced Milk had been shot. She also stated they were not commenting BC they had been shown CLASSIFIED info. (And it was done in a special room.) Then idiot advisor Roger Stone said he thinks his twitter, email, and phones were targeted w/a FISA warrant when we only knew he communicated w/hacker Guccifer 2 on Twitter. The moron TOLD us they also talked! *head desk* Several white hat hackers found that Wikileaks gave Russia access & its servers are IN Russia. And they have found the guy hosting them, who ALSO might be Guccifer! That moron when outed deleted his social media, which doesn't look bad AT ALL lol. These clowns are not even good comic book villains they are so inept. There is a reason these charges re:Yahoo came out, DOJ is laying the groundwork 4 charges. Oh! And Weiner may have been catfished by a legal adult & Hillary emails planted. The books they will write about this will be more insane than Bond. Hubby is voting for "Little Gold Finger," but I prefer "Little Gold Member." Heh heh. @20committee since he is ex NSA has current IC friends, who have said Trump will die in jail. This is BIG. I don't read here often now, the news is coming too quickly to keep up. Some other great journalism & dot connecting is being done by @funder & @khanoisseur. Be warned, its a loony rabbit hole. He's been groomed as an asset for decades. OK, I'm back to check I got the handles right and McDonald's may have been hacked BC they tweeted Trump "You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @barackobama back. Also, you have tiny hands." Oh. My. God. That was @ the top of my feed, see what I mean?? I'm @sewimperfect on there, I literally tweeted for the 2nd time after Nov & I'm hooked. I want him arrested so I can go back to my life lol.
