    Comey confirms FBI investigating Russia, Trump ties

    Comey confirms FBI investigating Russia, Trump ties

    FBI Chief James Comey said publicly for the first time Monday that his agency is investigating alleged links between Russia and the Trump campaign and whether any crimes may have been committed during last year's election campaign.

    "That includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia's efforts," Comey said in his opening statement to a dramatic hearing before the House Intelligence Committee.

    But I'm sure this is less important than if he found Hillary emailed anyone else on the planet.

    Notice how the Clinton Foundation all but dried up after the election. I guess charity is only important during campaigns. That was the biggest money laundering machine the world has ever seen, and that's why that private server was so damned important.

    Meanwhile, there isn't a stitch of evidence yet of Russian collusion. Because the whole liberal crybaby accusation is stupid.

    You lost, snowflakes. Get over it and grow up.

    While I definitely think foreign governments donated to the Clinton Foundation in order to get on the Clintons' good sides, I also think people who keep making the money laundering accusation don't actually know what money laundering is.

    This then is a confirmation that the Justice Department under the o bomb was serveilling team Trump.

    So Trump is/was correct.

    What has also now been established is somebody or somebodies, in an unauthrized manner, leaked, a felony crime, information related a US citizen which, by law, must remained "masked". Flynn is a US citizen whose information was illegally divulged.

    He just publicly said that there is no information supporting Trump's lies.

    But, but, but, I thought Comey was a Republican operative and acted personally to cost Hillary the election.

    Interesting. The FBI is investigating? I knew Congress was, but didn't know they were too. I wonder what they "have"?

    I've heard "Russia" more times in the last 6 months than I heard them mentioned in the last 25 years. I'm tired of hearing about them. I hope these investigations wrap up soon so we can go back to ignoring them.

    You mean the lie about Obama ordering a "tapp" (sic) on his phones and wires?

    It's still ongoing and CNN should probably wait til the hearing is over with before they run with their "Russia" frenzy headlines.
