‘FBI investigates Russian govt’s efforts to interfere in 2016 election’

FBI Director James Comey has confirmed that the bureau is investigating possible Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, including alleged links between Moscow and Donald Trump’s campaign.

Testifying before the House Select Committee on Intelligence, Comey said the probe is part of the FBI’s counter-intelligence mission, and ‘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.’ He declined to elaborate, citing an ‘open ongoing investigation’ which is ‘classified.’
