What Comey has already spilled about the Trump-Russia investigation

James Comey is no stranger to Congressional intel hearings, testifying on both the Clinton email investigation and the Trump-Russia investigation. Here's what he's said so far about the probe into Russia's election interference and possible collusion with Trump associates.

  • The FBI is investigating Russia's meddling in the U.S. presidential election.
  • The investigation includes looking into any contacts between Trump campaign officials and Russian government officials, and any crimes that could have been committed.
  • The FBI has performed background checks on some Trump officials, but Comey could not disclose any names.
  • Per his statement on Wednesday, as of January the FBI had not investigated Trump personally.
  • Comey believes Russia attempted to interfere with the election, but did not succeed in tampering with actual votes.
  • The FBI believes Russia is still attempting to interfere with American politics.
  • Comey expects more interference in 2018 and especially 2020 elections.
