Unfortunately for the sitting President, matters did not improve as Comey continued.
When asked about whether the FBI is investigating President Trump in regards to Russia's interference in our election, Comey said:
I have been authorized by the DOJ to confirm that the FBI, as part of our counterintelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election
(This) includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government.
And whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russian’s efforts.
As with any counterintelligence investigation, this will also include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed.
Trump already engaged in a Twitter tantrum the other night, but perhaps another one is coming down the pipeline?
Stay tuned to find out.
