FBI Head Denies Trump Wiretap Claim, Confirms Russia Election Probe

Without providing any concrete evidence, Donald Trump accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower over Twitter. Today, FBI Director James Comey has finally refuted the claim. "With respect to the president’s tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets, and we have looked carefully inside the FBI,” Comey said. “The Department of Justice has asked me to share with you that the answer is the same for the Department of Justice and all its components, the department has no information that supports those tweets.”

Comey also confirmed on Monday that the bureau is now conducting an investigation into Russian interference with the 1016 election and potential ties between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.

Daniel Kaluuya Speaks Out On Not Being Black Enough

In an interview with GQ, Daniel Kaluuya, star of Jordan Peel's masterpiece, "Get Out" spoke out about having to prove his blackness in America because he is British. "I've had to wrestle with that, with people going, 'You're too black,'" Kaluuya said. "Then I come to America and they say, 'You're not black enough.'" A few weeks ago, in an interview with New York radio station Hot 97.1 last week, Samuel L. Jackson wondered "what that movie would have been with an American brother who really feels that."

"In order to prove that I can play this role, I have to open up about the trauma that I've experienced as a black person," he said. "I have to show off my struggle so that people accept that I'm black...I resent that I have to prove that I'm black," he added. "I don't know what that is. I'm still processing it." (via: GQ)
