    FBI Director Comey asked Justice officials to refute Trumpís unproved wiretapping/

    FBI Director James B. Comey asked the Justice Department this weekend to issue a statement refuting President Trumpís claim that President Barack Obama ordered a wiretap of Trumpís phones before the election, according a U.S. official, but the department has not done so.

    Comey made the highly unusual request on Saturday after Trump accused Obama on Twitter of having his ďĎwires tappedí in Trump Tower."

    does this mean that the fBi is saying they had nothing to do with any alleged wiretapping?

    It means that James Comey is running around like a chicken with it's head cut off.

    It's understandable, under the circumstances, that he's disillusioned and disoriented.

    I think it means Comey wants to distance himself and the FBI from Trump's insane rantings.

    Comey's just trying to do what was a very difficult job and has now become an absolutely insane job.

    or to back Trump into a corner - maybe? Now the pressure is on Trump to release his source. Who at the Justice Department is going to refute anything? Sessions recused himself. What if it turns out Trump's source is an intelligence briefing? Comey would know that.
