Comey also said there's no evidence to back up Trump's allegations of Obama wiretapping, adding that "no president" could order a wiretap. He says he can't provide details about the investigation.
New York Sen. Charles Schumer issued the statement after FBI Director James Comey told a House panel that there was no information that supports Trump's allegation.

Though Comey would not discuss specific evidence, he went far beyond his testimony from a hearing in January, when he refused to confirm or deny the existence of any investigation exploring possible connections between Trump associates and Russian Federation, consistent with the FBI's longstanding policy of not publicly discussing its work.
