Trump tweets during Intelligence Committee hearing on Russian meddling

FBI Director James B. Comey confirmed for the first time Monday that the FBI is investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian authorities during the 2016 election campaign.

Comey said the investigation was examining whether "there was any coordination" between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Comey suggested that the case was not a criminal investigation but was being conducted as part of FBI's "counterintelligence mission," aimed at preventing Russia intelligence operations against the U.S.

"I can promise you we will follow the facts wherever they lead," he said.

Trump took to Twitter to respond during the hearing.
