James Comey Just Fact-Checked Trump in Real Time

The intelligence community had previously said that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election to bolster Trump's chances and sources had said the FBI was investigating people associated with Trump's campaign for alleged communication with Russian officials during the campaign.

Rep. Mike Turner of OH is a Republican member of the Intelligence Committee, and cautioned anyone from forming opinions based exclusively on what Comey shared Monday morning. "This is an important issue and it does need to be addressed, but it certainly shouldn't be played out in the media".

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee investigating President Trump's increasingly dubious claim that former President Barack Obama illegally wiretapped Trump Tower said Sunday that information recently handed over to his panel by the Justice Department still offers no proof to back up the accusation. "However, it's still possible that other surveillance activities were used against President Trump and his associates". Michael Rogers emphatically debunked other claims that Obama's administration may have instead enlisted the help of British intelligence to eavesdrop on Trump's campaign. Burnett asked her guest.

"The real story the Congress, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and all others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information", Trump tweeted at 7:02 a.m.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, also run by Republicans, is also looking into the matter of Russian interference in the election.

The FBI director said the investigation into Russian election interference began in July, during the height of alleged attempts by the Vladimir Putin-led Moscow regime to sway the presidential contest against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The President also mentioned the Obama administration's monitoring of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's cellphone, a bruising incident in German-US relations. "The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a awful campaign".

Does that make it fake news?

When asked about the likelihood of Congress creating an independent investigative body to investigate Russia's role in the election, Schiff responded, "More likely today than it was yesterday".

Members of both parties have threatened to subpoena administration officials or delay confirmation hearings for Trump's nominees until their requests for information are answered.

Conway added that "the unmasking of an American citizen through these intelligence leaks should concern everyone", a reference to former national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn.

"FBI Director Comey refuses to deny he briefed President Obama on calls made by Michael Flynn to Russian Federation".

The White House has faced a storm of criticism for Mr Trump's wiretapping claims which were made two weeks ago following damaging revelations about contacts between his officials and the Russian ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak.
