White House 'peddling falsehoods over GCHQ Trump Tower spying claims'
The FBI director was the latest government official to reject Trump's claims, made without any evidence, that Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower during the campaign. He says he can't provide details about the investigation. Comey said the Justice Department also asked him to share with the committee that the answer also applies to the Justice Department and its various components.
But it was in questions aimed at Comey and Rogers that the trustworthiness of the President of United States evaporated before the nation's eyes.
Now, none of this means there was any Trump-Russia collusion, nor that there was no surveillance of Trump. He says he's authorized by the Justice Department to make the disclosure.
Writing in the Guardian, Sir Peter Westmacott accused the White House of "peddling falsehoods" after Trump's press secretary, Sean Spicer, repeated claims that the UK's intelligence agency, GCHQ, had assisted then-president Barack Obama in tapping Trump's NY phones. Rep. Devin Nunes, a California Republican and chairman of the House intelligence committee, also rejected it earlier in the hearing.
Trump has said he has no knowledge of his associates coordinating with Russian Federation during the election.

The American people should be deeply disturbed by either of two inescapable conclusions: Their President is content to live in an alternate reality in which any and all news that challenges him is "fake" - including any evidence that illuminates ties between his close associates and a foreign adversary - or their President is willfully dissembling to keep those ties out of the public view.
Trump tweeted Monday: "The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a awful campaign".
A separate tweet referenced James Clapper, the director of national intelligence under President Barack Obama, who has said that Trump's allegation that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower is false. "This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it".
Comey testified Russian intelligence officials used an intermediary to pass Podesta's hacked emails to WikiLeaks before the election.
His appearances on Capitol Hill since then have occurred in classified settings, often with small groups of lawmakers, and he has made no public statements connected to the Trump campaign or Russian Federation.
Asked about certain members of the Obama administration, Comey said they would be able to unmask citizens in certain situations. Accusations of Russian Federation connections have dogged the Trump administration since he took office in January.
