I am not entirely sure what point they were trying to make with this tweet, as there were a WHOLE LOT of questions that James Comey answered in a similar fashion.FBI Director Comey refuses to deny he briefed President Obama on calls made by Michael Flynn to Russia. pic.twitter.com/cUZ5KgBSYP— President Trump (@POTUS) March 20, 2017
This one on the other hand was pretty obvious as the White House was clearly hoping this would stop people from suggesting that the Russians stole the election for Trump.The NSA and FBI tell Congress that Russia did not influence electoral process. pic.twitter.com/d9HqkxYBt5— President Trump (@POTUS) March 20, 2017
However as Wonkette points out this tweet was actually refuted during the still ongoing hearing:
In this clip, Nunes is asking whether there is any clear evidence that Russian interference literally flipped vote tallies (like on voting machines) in specific states. Comey and Rogers say no. That is VERY DIFFERENT from saying “Russia did not influence [the] electoral process.” This is simply a #FakeNews lie from the White House, and as such, it can fuck right off.
For the record, JUST NOW, a Democrat asked Comey to respond to this tweet, and he said he did NOT intend to give the impression the Trump White House is giving, with its lie tweet. JUST FYI.
Also fairly clear why the WH likes this answer because if somebody had not leaked the fact that Mike Flynn was drunk dialing Russia Trump would not have had to fire his ass.NSA Director Rogers tells Congress unmasking individuals endangers national security. pic.twitter.com/jTwjPINvNh— President Trump (@POTUS) March 20, 2017
And then would we ever have learned that he was working as a foreign agent for Turkey?
Yeah, no shit!FBI Director Comey says classified leaks to the media have been “unusually active” recently. pic.twitter.com/WumDJSqaFA— President Trump (@POTUS) March 20, 2017
People are worried about the future of our country. Of course they are leaking!
Here the WH is hinting that perhaps the Obama folks are the source of all the leaks.FBI Director Comey admits Obama’s White House had ability to “unmask” American citizens. https://t.co/gIo6it9NcQ— President Trump (@POTUS) March 20, 2017
Wow, so subtle.
To be clear this is only saying that in the intelligence report from January of this year there was no evidence of collusion.FBI Director Comey: fmr. DNI Clapper "right" to say no evidence of collusion between Russia and Trump Campaign. #ComeyHearing pic.twitter.com/MqBG2xd4s7— President Trump (@POTUS) March 20, 2017
However neither Comey nor NSA Director Rogers would comment on what they have learned since that report.
All in all these tweets smell of desperation.
What we DID learn definitely today is that there is NO evidence that the Obama Administration wiretapped Trump Tower, and that there IS an ongoing FBI investigation into Trump's campaign ties to Russia.
You will notice that the WH did not tweet about either of those facts.
So to be clear Trump was once again shown to be a liar, and is currently being investigated for possible collusion with the foreign government that hacked our election.
