The head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey, has asked the Department of Justice to reject President Donald Trump's scurrilous charge that President Barack Obama wiretapped the Trump campaign at Trump Tower. The claim, if true, would mean that the F.B.I. had broken the law because of the nature of the request to wiretap a candidate running for President of the United States. According to the New York Times report, both the F.B.I. and the D.O.J. have declined comment on Director Comey and his concerns surrounding the wiretapping charge.

The situation now has been further complicated by the fact that the U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has "recused" himself from investigating or being involved with any matters related to the Trump campaign and Russian involvement in sabotaging the Clinton campaign. Further complicating the matter is Director Comey himself who has been embroiled in the 2016 presidential campaign, including the investigation into the Hillary Clinton emails and the private server controversy.

President Trump in an out-of-control Twitter rant

On Saturday and into Sunday, President Trump went on an out-of-control Twitter rampage, in which he ranted and raved about former President Obama wiretapping him. Trump compared the unsubstantiated allegation to "McCarthyism," an irony in itself since Trump's mentor was Roy Cohn, Sen.

Joseph McCarthy's chief counsel during the "Red Scare" hearings.

Washington D.C. baffled by Trump claim

Much of the talk by Trump has Washington D.C.

baffled. An expert on criminal justice, Shimon Prokupecz, told CNN host Fredericka Whitfield that he sees no "evidence" pertaining to charges lodged by Trump against Obama. He has seen no FISA warrant and no criminal warrant. The evidence suggests that President Trump picked up the "false" news story from Mark Levin, a right-wing radio host, who appeared on “Fox and Friends” on Sunday and steadfastly refused to divulge the source of the story.

The insinuation being that this was "false news," something Trump himself has complained about.
