James Comey Confirms FBI Probe of Trump Campaign over Ties with Russian Government Ahead of Election

On Monday FBI Director James Comey confirmed an FBI probe into the Trump campaign over Russian interference in the election and denied the president’s claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.

Comey said the FBI was "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 went on to say, "With respect to the president’s tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets."
