The Federal Bureau of Investigation, James B. Comey said on Monday that the Bureau is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to meddle in the 2016 election.
As Comey states at congressional hearing before the National Intelligence Committee, the probe includes the links between Trump campaign associates and the Russian Government.
“I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI as part of our counter-intelligence mission is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election,” Comey said.
Hearing included question from the ranking member Adam Schiff to confirm the claims by the U.S. President Donald Trump, former administration tapped the Trump Tower during election campaign. “I have no information to support those tweets,” Comey said several times, repeating his answer.
