Trump campaign, Russia's involvement being probed says FBI
For the first time, the FBI director James Comey said that the agency is probing if there was any coordination between Donald Trump's campaign and Moscow. He said that they were probing if there was any interference by Russia in the campaign that saw Trump become President of the United States of America.
Comey also told the House Intelligence Committee that he had no information about Trump's wiretap claims. Trump claimed he had been wiretapped on the orders of Barack Obama.
Comey went on to say that the Russian n President Vladimir Putin had a clear preference for whom he wanted to see as the next president. It was not Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, he said.
He said that the agency is investigating the possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. That includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia's efforts are also being probed he further added.
