Comey meets Intel senators amid uproar over Trump-Russia ties

At The Hill by KBWilliams --

JS The Senate Intelligence Committe is a large part of the SWAMP. The same Senators have been on that committee for many years. Pres Trump shld tell Mitch McConnell to get fresh faces on this committee to get a  new outlook. This old group has much more power, inluence than a SENAtor should.

FBI Director James B. Comey met with lawmakers from the Senate Intelligence Committee behind closed doors on Friday, amid an uproar over alleged contacts between members of President Trump’s campaign and Russian officials.

Committee members and Comey spent nearly three hours Friday afternoon in a secure room in the Senate basement used for classified briefings, known as a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF).

Lawmakers tersely refused to comment upon exiting the meeting, declining even to confirm that Comey met with them.

The Intelligence panel’s chairman, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), called the meeting “just a normal classified briefing.”

“I won't talk about it at all,” he told a pack of reporters surrounding him by the subway to the Russell Senate office building — one of whom had leapt across the train tracks to get into the scrum. Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) stood on the opposite side of the open tracks, surrounded by a separate mob of reporters, and similarly declined to offer any information on the meeting.
