FBI Confirms Probe Into Trump Campaign’s Russia Ties
It’s the FBI vs. the president’s Twitter account. Director James Comey confirmed yesterday during a five-hour House Intelligence Committee hearing that his agency is still investigating Russia’s 2016 election interference, including potential collusion with the Trump campaign. President Donald Trump tweeted repeatedly during the hearing, claiming that Comey confirmed that the electoral process wasn’t affected by Russia — though the FBI director directly refuted that assertion during his testimony. Comey also dismissed Trump’s unsubstantiated accusation that Obama wiretapped him, a claim the White House continues to stand by.
