"James Comey is “incredulous” about the ravings of the guy he handed the presidency to. 

The FBI director was reportedly flabbergasted when President Trump alleged that Barack Obama had ordered Trump’s “wires tapped” in the weeks before the election, and is restlessly waiting for the Department of Justice to refute Trump’s claims. 

 

One course of action Comey might consider is refuting Trump himself, with a reminder that the FBI spent most of October not wiretapping Trump, but investigating and leaking about Hillary Clinton, before Comey himself landed her campaign a fatal blow, and handed his new tormentor the presidency. 

 

This chart comes from Brad Fay of Engagement Labs, who says Comey’s infamous letter to Congress announcing the FBI had uncovered a new cache Clinton emails, (which turned out to be nothing, but could have been the smoking gun which proved she did Benghazi) was decisive in the election....Comey can’t unfoul this bed. But when his Trump-Russian inquiries have run their course he owes the world an accounting. Just for starters. "

The ridiculous myth that Comey caused Hillary to lose is really out of vogue now. Hillary caused Hillary to lose. End of story.

Well, the post was about Comey's reaction to the the wire tapping accusations too.

Comey didn't "cause" her to lose but his stunt did hurt her.

Bernie would have won. Anyone denying that is just fooling themselves.

So, you too have decided to ignore the wire tapping part of the post. Okey-Dokey.

Somebody tapped the Flynn call with the Russian ambassador.  Do we know who did that for starters?  Why couldn't the same people have tapped Trump Tower?  People seem to forget that Obama's regime tapped Angela Merkel and ordered surveillance on reporter James Rosen.

If Sanders had promoted himself as anything other than a "democratic socialist;" he may have had a chance, the Clinton behemoth election machine notwithstanding.

 

 No American(s) were going to elect a Socialist in any way shape or form in the 2016 election.

All calls are tapped when you talk to the players on the other team. Even the prez gets listened in on.

I would have thought no Americans would have elected an emotionally and morally unstable sociopath  either. But you folks continue to amaze.

There's a difference between knowing you are being recorded and being wiretapped.  If Flynn had known, he obviously wouldn't have said some of the stuff he said.

Then he's incompetent as well as crooked.

That still wouldn't explain why anyone would be listening to calls at Trump Tower if they were listened to.  That would require evidence that a crime was being committed which would require a warrant or that communications with a foreign government were going on, which would require a FISA warrant.  If law enforcement and intelligence can just willy-nilly listen to everyone, then we have a problem.

How could he not know? How stupid is he?

Russian diplomats are routinely recorded.

If you call the Russian Embassy, there's a good chance the NSA will be listening
