LoBiondo to question witnesses at Russian activity hearing
Trump slammed the investigation in a series of tweets earlier on Monday, calling the story "fake news" and alleging that it was "made up" by Democrats. Trump tweeted early Monday as news coverage on the Russian Federation allegations dominated the morning's cable news. "The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a awful campaign".
US investigators say Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the hacking into the computers at the Democratic National Committee.
Reports surfaced in February that Michael Flynn, then Trump's national security adviser, had inappropriately discussed sanctions on Russian Federation with the country's ambassador before the inauguration and misled Vice President Pence.
Comey testified before the House Intelligence Committee, which is also investigating whether Trump was under surveillance before he became president. "Must find leaker now!"
Comey, who announced that the FBI was investigating more of Hillary Clinton's emails days before she lost the 2016 election, said that the Bureau's practice "is not to confirm the existence of ongoing investigations, especially those investigations that involve classified matters". Officials investigating the matter have said they believe Moscow had hacked into Democrats' computers in a bid to help Trump's election bid.
Comey's appearance was set to start at 10 a.m. EDT Monday.
USA intelligence agencies in January took the extraordinary step of stating publicly that they had concluded that hackers working for Russian Federation under Putin's direction broke into the email accounts of senior Democrats and released embarrassing documents to damage Trump's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
"The one crime we know that's been committed is that one: the leaking of someone's name.", Representative Devin Nunes, chairman of the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told Fox News Sunday.
"We will never know whether the Russian intervention was determinative in such a close election".
"There was circumstantial evidence of collusion".
When asked about the intelligence community's responsibility to correct false reporting, Comey said, "There's a whole lot out there that is false". Flynn eventually resigned as President Trump's national security adviser.
Trump tried to go on offense in the middle of the hearing, launching a series of tweets from his official White House account, including one that appeared to blame the Obama administration for leaking details of Flynn's contacts with the Russian envoy.
Flynn later admitted talking to the ambassador about USA relations with Russia just as the Obama administration was slapping punitive new sanctions and expelling three dozen Russian officials over the election interference.
The Senate Intelligence Committee has scheduled a similar hearing for later in the month.
