“FBI Director James Comey said for the first time Monday that the bureau is investigating whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and Moscow while Russia was interfering in the presidential election,” CNN reports.

“Comey also delivered an implicit rebuke to President Donald Trump, saying that he had ‘no information’ to support claims by the President that he was wiretapped on the orders of predecessor Barack Obama.”


According to The Guardian:

“We learned that more than one member of Trump’s campaign has been under investigation and that the possibility is being explored that criminal acts were committed.”

“Most of all, the opening of the congressional inquiry on Monday took the US deeper into uncharted territory, an investigation into whether a presidential election campaign actively cooperated with a foreign adversary to win, and whether the beneficiary of that intervention was now seeking to cover up that collusion.”
