WASHINGTON (Reuters) – FBI Director James Comey confirmed on Monday that the agency was investigating possible efforts by the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 US elections, including links between President Donald Trump‘s campaign and Moscow.

Comey told a congressional hearing on Russian activities that the investigation “includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.”

“Because it is an open, ongoing and classified investigation, I cannot say more about what we are doing and whose conduct we are examining,” Comey said.
