NSA director openly says Trump complicating U.S. alliances

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. 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.

Rogers was testifying before the House intelligence committee alongside FBI Director James Comey.

There, they learned that there is, in fact, an ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into links and potential collusion between Trump campaign officials and Russian Federation. He says he's authorized by the Justice Department to make the disclosure.

A former British ambassador to the U.S. has warned the White House it is playing a "dangerous game" over claims Barack Obama used Britain's GCHQ intelligence agency to spy on Donald Trump. Officials investigating the matter have said they believe Moscow had hacked into Democrats' computers in a bid to help Trump's election bid.

Beijing Restrooms Get Facial Recognition to Thwart Toilet Paper Bandits
The new smart toilet paper system has also sparked discussions on social media, particularly over privacy and security concerns. It has put up posters as well as broadcast messages on its public announcement system exhorting visitors to use less paper.

The House intelligence committee is holding a hearing on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Other Republicans also joined Nunes in rejecting their president's allegations. We already knew this, right?

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.

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.

Any lack of detail from Comey on Monday would likely be contrasted with public comments he made previous year when closing out an investigation into Clinton's email practices and then, shortly before Election Day, announcing that the probe would be revived following the discovery of additional emails.
