The story from ABC News begins with this:

Within the first minutes of a much-anticipated House hearing Monday, FBI Director James Comey is expected to officially undercut the wiretapping allegations that have been promoted by the White House for more than two weeks, according to sources familiar with Comey’s thinking.

Later, it adds:

Asked whether Comey will make clear Monday that there is no evidence to support White House claims of Obama-era wiretapping against Trump associates, [Adam] Schiff [D-California] said, “I expect that he will, and I hope that we can put an end to this wild goose chase because what the president said was just patently false.”

[Eric] Swalwell [D-California] called the wiretapping claims a “smoke bomb” intended to “fog up the place and obstruct” investigations into ties between Trump circles and the Russian government.

Even [Devin] Nunes [R-California] acknowledged there is no evidence indicating the Obama administration was eavesdropping on the Trump campaign.

“Was there a physical wiretap of Trump Tower? No. There never was,” Nunes told Fox News on Sunday.
