During a hearing with the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Monday morning, FBI director James Comey undermined Trump's claim that Obama used wire tapps [sic] to monitor his activity during the campaign, saying "I have no information that supports those tweets."

Now Trump and Comey—and not Trump and Merkel—have something in common. We can now officially add Trump's lie about wiretapping to the pile of 129 he's stacked up so far as POTUS.

Comey's statement reflects earlier comments made by former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who denied that the Obama administration wiretapped Trump.

Judging by a flurry of early morning Twitter dot com activity, wherein Trump reeled of a bunch of old standards—"the real story is the leaks!" and "what about all the Democrats who met with Russians?" and "I WON" and "CNN is fake news!"—the president seemed to know what Comey was going to say.

Watch the whole hearing above. Democrats are trying to pump the FBI director for info on Trump-Russia connections, though he's keeping most of that pretty close to his chest since it's an ongoing investigation. Meanwhile, Republicans like Trey Gowdy (SC-4) are following Trump's lead and focusing on how illegal it might have been for reporters to publish leaked classified documents. To which I say: Feh.
