Watch NSA And FBI Fact Check Trump In Real Time As He Lies On Twitter In Middle Of Testimony

News, Politics

On Monday afternoon, the House Intelligence Committee had a surreal plot twist when F.B.I. Director James Comey was asked to respond to a tweet that had just been published during his testimony by the official White house account for President Donald Trump. To be brief, this was in an attempt to spin Comey’s own brutal rebuke of Trump’s previous  tweets accusing President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower with no proof whatsoever.

When confronted about Trump’s ridiculous accusations , Comey demurred. “I’m sorry. I haven’t been following anyone on Twitter while I’ve been sitting here.”

Senator Jim Himes, a Democrat from Connecticut and chairman of the New Democrat Coalition, knew the FBI was trying to back-track so he took it upon himself to read one of Trump’s tweets aloud (savage). He then followed up with this question:

“This tweet has gone out to millions of Americans,” Himes said. “Is the tweet, as I read it to you, is that accurate?”

Comey replied with:

“Well, it’s hard for me to react to that. Let me just tell you what we understand.

“What we’ve said is, we’ve offered no opinion, have no view, have no information on potential impact because it’s never something that we looked at.”

Senator Himes was not going to let Comey off the hook just yet:

 “So it’s not too far of a logical leap to conclude that the assertion that you’ve told the Congress that there was no influence on the electoral process is not quite right.”

Who knew Twitter was going to be used as a  propaganda machine. This was a success!
