The official presidential Twitter account, @POTUS, just sent out a tweet highlighting comments by FBI Director James Comey, saying the remarks showed former President Obama and his staff may have known the FBI was listening in on former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s calls with Russian officials.
“FBI Director Comey refuses to deny he briefed President Obama on calls made by Michael Flynn to Russia,” the tweet posted to the official @POTUS account read.

The tweet included a video from Monday’s hearing on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election of Rep. Trey Gowdy asking Comey whether he had briefed Obama on the Flynn calls.
Records of the calls ran counter to statements Flynn had made about not having communicated with Russia — including comments Flynn made to Vice President Pence. Flynn eventually resigned as President Trump’s national security adviser.
Donald Trump is running scared!
