He’s back — Comey drops bombshell on Trump

The Hill  --

Director James Comey is once again shaking Washington to its core.

Comey, a pivotal character in the 2016 election who many Democrats say cost their party the White House, confirmed Monday that the FBI is investigating possible links between Russia and President Trump’s campaign.
“I can promise you we will follow the facts wherever they lead,” Comey vowed in testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, which is also looking into Russia’s meddling in the presidential election.

The announcement ensures that Comey and the FBI will hover over the administration for as long the investigation takes, frustrating Republicans who would like to move on from the controversies surrounding Trump and Moscow.

Comey, a thorn in the side of Hillary Clintons campaign throughout the 2016 race, is now becoming an irritant to the Republican president, who many Democrats say would never have reached the White House without the FBI’s actions.
