Democratic Sen. Says Comey May Confirm Tomorrow Whether FBI’s Investigating Trump-Russia Ties


CNN reports tonight that according to a Democratic senator, FBI Director James Comey will say tomorrow whether the FBI is conducting an investigation into potential ties between President Trump and Russia.

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse has told CNN that in a meeting with himself and Senator Lindsey Graham, the FBI director said the following:

Comey assured them he would confirm if an investigation exists “and the scope of their Russia/Trump investigation because he had not been able to at that point say that there was one.”

And Politico is out with a report tonight saying the same thing, with Whitehouse making the following remarks:

So we said look, we’re going to go ahead with our hearing on the 15th, just let us know by then,” Whitehouse said in the interview. “So I think he implicitly confirmed that they are looking at this and he said he’d get us a clearer explanation by tomorrow. That was satisfactory to both of us.
