FBI investigating links between Russia, Trump

FBI Director James Comey confirmed Monday that the bureau is investigating possible links and coordination between Russia and associates of President Donald Trump as part of a broader probe of Russian interference in last year's presidential campaign.

The extraordinary revelation, and the first public confirmation of the wider investigation that began last summer, came in a congressional hearing examining Russian meddling and possible connections between Moscow and Trump's campaign.

In a bruising five-hour session, the FBI director also rejected the new president's claim that his predecessor had wiretapped his New York skyscraper, and he corrected, in real time, the president's Monday tweets about his testimony.
