James Comey Confirms Investigation into Donald Trump-Russia Ties

by at . Comments

We cannot say for certain whether or not Donald Trump ever asked Russian prostitutes to urinate on each other.

But we may be able to at some point!

In a hearing before the House Intelligence Committee on Monday morning, FBI Director James Comey confirmed that his agency has been investigating ties between the Russian government and officials affiliated with Donald Trump since July.

He acknowledged Russia's interference in the 2016 Presidential election, saying that evidence proves the country wanted Trump to defeat Hillary Clinton.

“I have been authorized by the Department of Justice 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.

"That 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 Russia’s efforts.”

In short, the President of the United States is being investigated for treason.

"As you know, our practice is not to confirm the existence of ongoing investigations, especially those investigations that involve classified matters,” Comey also said Monday.

“But in unusual circumstances, where it is in the public interest, it may be appropriate to do so. This is one of those circumstances.”

We'd tend to agree.

Oh, and what about Trump's claims that Barack Obama wire tapped Trump Tower in the fall of 2016?

"I have no information that supports those tweets," Comey told the committee, adding that the Justice Department - along with the FBI - had no information to support the allegations.

Comey added that no American president could order a wiretapping operation against a specific American citizen.
