Federal Bureau of Investigation director fact-checks Trump's tweets

Roger Stone tweeted Saturday night'I cannot wait to testify before a Senate Hearing to expose the phony Russian narrative of the Clinton Crime Family #NoCollusion

James Comey revealed for the first time that the FBI is investigating possible Russian government efforts to meddle with the election, including any links between Mr Trump's campaign and Moscow.

"The FBI is very careful in how we handle information about our cases and about the people we are investigating".

Monday's extraordinary House Intelligence Committee hearing confirmed for Americans something that's real and something that's not.

Earlier in the hearing, the chairman of the committee contradicted an assertion from Trump by saying that there had been no wiretap of Trump Tower.

Echoing the White House, committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., closed Monday's hearing by saying they also "don't have any evidence" of collusion between Trump and Russian Federation officials.

Comey also stated categorically that there was no evidence to support the conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama had ordered the wiretapping of Trump Tower, speculation Trump himself had stated as fact in a moment of Breitbart-induced delirium earlier this month.

He said Congress and the Federal Bureau of Investigation should be going after media leaks, and maybe even Hillary Clinton, instead. Must find leaker now!

Trump tried to shift attention away from the wiretapping claims in a series of Monday morning tweets.

Trump said. "What about all of the contact with the Clinton campaign and the Russians?"

Spicer noted that Comey said it was possible for Obama administration officials to "unmask" people caught in intelligence probes, and noted that Comey refused to deny if he had briefed Obama on Flynn's calls.

Those in the Trump orbit: Democrats likely will raise questions about Russian links and could include, Quigley said, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, former NSA chief Mike Flynn and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

A congressional inquiry into Russian interference in the presidential election that has so far unfolded behind closed doors moves into the open with a public hearing featuring FBI Director James Comey. The video clip shows Comey and Rogers confirming they have no evidence indicating that Russian Federation altered vote tallies on Election Day in swing states like Florida, North Carolina and Ohio.

"Following this testimony it's clear that nothing has changed", Spicer said.

"What about all of the contact with the Clinton campaign and the Russians?" he asked in a tweet. They're also trying to get involved in campaigns around the globe and - over in Europe.

But he told the committee because it was an ongoing investigation and was classified, he could not say more about whose conduct they were examining. Russian Federation denies it attempted to interfere in the November 8 presidential vote.

"There is NO EVIDENCE of Trump-Russia collusion and there is NO EVIDENCE of a Trump-Russia scandal", a senior administration official said in a written statement.

But the public did know before the election that the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton's email server and her handling of classified information.
