The Ties That Don't Bind
It's now official:
The FBI director testified alongside National Security Agency head Michael Rogers before the House Intelligence Committee Monday.Who should be more wirried-President Trump, or the media if they're embarrassed yet again?
“Our practice is not to confirm the existence of ongoing investigations, especially those that include classified matters,” Comey said. “But, in unusual circumstances, it may be appropriate to do so. This is one of those circumstances. I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. That includes any links between the Trump campaign and Russian government, and whether there was cooperation.”
“This will also include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed,” he continued. “Because it’s classified, I can not say more about who we are investigating.”
