    Comey confirms FBI probe into Trump-Russia collusion

    The director of the FBI says the probe is part of a larger investigation into whether Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. election.

    FBI Director James Comey confirmed Monday the FBI is investigating Russia’s meddling in the presidential election, including possible links between the Trump campaign and Moscow.
    Comey told the House Intelligence Committee at a hearing that the bureau normally does not comment on the existence of counterintelligence investigations, but that he was authorized to do so in this case because of the extraordinary public interest.

    “This will also include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed,” Comey told the intelligence panel.
    Minutes before Comey's highly anticipated testimony , the House Intelligence Committee's ranking Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) scolded Donald Trump on the president's platform of choice: Twitter.
    “Mr. President, the Russians hacked our election and interfered. No one disputes this now, but you. This is what is called 'fact,'” Schiff wrote in a series of tweets denouncing Trump's claim that his predecessor wiretapped Trump Tower. “The intelligence community concluded the Russians will interfere again. This is why full investigation is important to country. Please stop.”
    Schiff followed with more tweets directed at the president, saying there’s no evidence former President Barack Obama or the British government surveilled him.
    “Your suggestion British wiretapped you & jape with Merkel are harming our relationships with key allies. This is called ‘collateral damage,’” Schiff tweeted, a reference to White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s claim last week that the U.K.’s intelligence apparatus might have spied on Trump. The White House has since promised to the U.K. that it wouldn’t repeat those allegations.

    TREASON

    Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.


    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)
    That sounds good enough for me.

    September - Obama has got to fire Comey.

    October - When Hillary comes in, she'll certainly fire Comey.

    March - Trump will likely fire Comey.

    If he can piss off this many people, sounds like he should stay ;0

    So Comey was investigating the Trump campaign possible Russia influence at the same time he was investigating emails. Interesting.

    Right? If he pisses off everybody, he's got to be doing something right!
