Comey's Opening Statement Confirms Ongoing Investigation

FBI Director James Comey's opening statement during today’s House Intelligence Committee hearing was extraordinary, confirming far more than anyone had expected.

"I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI, as part of our counter-intelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. And 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."

Republicans want to talk about anything but Comey's bombshell statement
Thanks from Camelot and Clara007

That is a misleading headline. Comey confirmed that an investigation is underway, not that there are links confirmed.

Fair enough. Edited.

Since James Comey confirmed that there is an active FBI investigation into Russian interference into our election and potential collusion with the Trump campaign, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have bent over backwards to change the subject. But Rep. Michael Turner may have gotten just a little too cute by suggesting that any old thing, like an innocent picture or meeting, could prompt an FBI investigation, asking Comey what the “tipping point” could be for such an investigation.

Comey’s response:

A credible allegation of wrongdoing.

Oops.

And who made the referral for the investigation? Has anyone asked Comey that question? Because it is likely fact that the Øbama Justice Department made the referral.

Did anyone ask Comey if the FBI is investigating the murder of Seth Rich, a DNC employee, whom Julian Assange strongly indicated was one source for the DNC material?

Comey did say that the national election could not be hacked, so why did outgoing DHS Secretary, Jeh Johnson, begin the process of nationalizing the national election under the phony excuse of "critical infrastructure"? That would make the national election more hackable. More Øbama Garbage Before his Exit Think about it.

As CNN pointed out in October 2016, it is not possible to hack the presidential election.

No, the 2016 presidential election can't be hacked - CNNPolitics.com

Of Course! Here we go with another smoke&mirrors game while any relevant news doesn't make the news cycle on TV or is buried in the backpages if carried at all by the NYTimes.

A few days ago, I heard a podcast interview from a public radio source(I forget which now) of Robert Parry, who since semi-retirement, has been running his own investigative news source: Consortium News. Anyway, during an interview on the subject of Russiagate, Trump, Goldman-Sachs influence etc., Parry remarked that back when he was a young AP reporter and one of the two journalists who first went public about the Iran-Contra Scandal in 1980, they had interviewed 10 separate sources before going public with the story. And that's his main beef with what today's MSM media and Washington's three letter agencies are playing a game with them for "access" and selective leaks of classified material.

I'm not going to bother watching James Comey do a slow striptease, that no doubt, will get blanket coverage on CNN etc.. But with all the focus on whether Russia has influence on the US Government, does anyone ever ask about other nations that have a long history of trying to force US foreign policy? And I'm speaking primarily of Israel here, and I guess this is as good a place as any to drop this link:
Israel interferes in our politics all the time, and it’s never a scandal
