    Will FBI Dir. Comey be fired now that proof of Trump Tower being under surveillance have emerged?

    House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) announced on Wednesday that he had learned that members of President Donald Trump’s transition team had been under surveillance by the Obama administration, that individual names had been “unmasked” by the intelligence community, and that those names had been leaked to the media.

    Comey is the most political FBI director since J. Edgar Hoover.  He's bringing too much negative attention to the FBI.  He should step down and not be removed.  But that would require someone who wants to do what is best for the country and not at FBI director who has become a media whore.

    RJ.....IMHO, sadly, Comey has been discovered to be yet another huge disappointment~~to our country, the FBI and actually to himself (he should be anyway!)  I have not responded to any hub nor Question with anything even remotely related to politics in well over a month.  I had no choice but to back away and purge my poor mind of all the poison, lies, games, accusations....and simply all the garbage that's been flying around and back & forth since last year.  It only gets worse and more and more ludicrous, as well as difficult to tolerate.
    I do firmly believe that all truth will ultimately be divulged, guilty parties will pay the prices, consequences will fall and an entire party will spend a full year at least, wiping the egg from their faces(BIG mouths). 
    So this is "Comey, the All American Boy Scout, straight as an arrow, all honor, justice and honesty?"  Yeah, OK. 
    I don't know about you, but my already shaky belief in our system and lack of trust in politicians has reached a new and ugly low.  I'm a patient, fair and honest individual, waiting to see some of the same from the powers that be.
    Have a good week-end Ralph.......Paula

    I went back and listened to the Nunes press conference announcement of March 22.  The link is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxZNa4eYG0c.

    After listening to the entire video, I'd like to comment about how the term he uses ("incidental surveillance") differs from the term you use in your question ("under surveillance").

    I infer that whatever surveillance was happening was done legally, mostly because the interview mentioned that the material under discussion had been provided to Rep. Nunes because of his position, and was viewed by him as part of his job.  He repeatedly used the term "Incidental surveillance".  To me, this is saying someone was out watching for one thing when something else happens.  And ... it made its way into the report for some reason.

    To me "under surveillance" would mean that someone had been targeted for surveillance, and that the report was about whoever or whatever that had been targeted.  Here, that is not the case.

    Will Comey be fired?  It seems unlikely that there is a basis for that.  The video of the Nunes conference did not disclose who ordered the surveillance or why.

    My guess is that Nunes may not know the who or why either, all he talked about was that it uncovered something incidentally that made its way into a report he read.  He did not talk about who was targeting who for surveillance, nor did he talk about why.

    I listened to the whole thing, and at the end I decided all he had done was offer up some fodder for the folks who like to jump to conclusions on the basis of rumor and innuendo.   

    As this plays out, perhaps we will all learn who the lemmings are.
