Rebuking the claim that the entire idea of the FBI investigation into the Trump campaign and its Russian connections during the 2016 campaign is a false claim made up by Democrats, the agencies director, James Comey confirmed today the FBI is, indeed, investigating the Trump campaign.

“The FBI is investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government,” Comey said, “and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.”

With that comment, Comey put to rest any and all claims the investigation only existed in the minds of the Democrats. It’s real. It’s happening.

Comey cited no evidence, either for, or against the Trump campaign, but only said a criminal investigation is underway. The FBI director also refuted the claim former president Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower.

“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, and we have looked carefully inside the FBI,” Comey said.

Trump, immediately took to Twitter firing off a series of defensive sounding tweets, as he usually does, trying to make everyone look in a different direction.
