The FBI director inflicted a double blow on President Trump early on in the hearing.
He first confirmed that the bureau is investigating links between Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government.
…The media focus will next turn to whether the bureau will uncover evidence of outright collusion between Team Trump and Moscow.
On the accusation of wiretapping, Comey did not even provide a fig leaf for the White House. In addition to asserting that the FBI has no evidence to support the wiretapping charges, Comey noted, “The Department of Justice has asked me to share with you that the answer is the same for the Department of Justice and all its components. The department has no information that supports those tweets.”
