FBI Director James Comey confirmed that they are investigating the alleged contacts between the Trump campaign and Russia. The White House continues to say there was no collusion. I wonder if the FBI will also investigate the many contacts between the Clinton campaign and Russian officials?
The White House stood its ground Monday after FBI Director James Comey confirmed the bureau is probing possible “links” between the Russian government and Trump campaign associates, and knocked down President Trump’s claim that his predecessor wiretapped him.
Press Secretary Sean Spicer, in response, maintained there’s “no evidence” of collusion with Russia – and said Trump is not withdrawing his allegation against former President Barack Obama, either.
The pushback followed a daylong House intelligence committee hearing where Comey and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers testified. Comey used the forum to confirm for the first time that the bureau is probing Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign, including possible Trump team ties.
As Trump himself joined the fray on Twitter, Spicer said “nothing has changed” with regard to allegations of Trump-Russia connections.
