Comey Declines To Say If Trump Himself Was Under Investigation

FBI Director James Comey on Monday declined to answer questions about whether President Donald Trump either was under investigation during the 2016 election campaign or is currently.

Comey urged observers not to “overinterpet” his non-answers to questions from Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) during the House Intelligence Committee hearing on Russian interference in the election.

“We have briefed them in great detail on the subjects of the investigation and what we're doing but I'm not going to answer about anybody in this forum,” Comey said of committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) and ranking member Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).

Comey did confirm during the hearing that the FBI was investigating whether member of Trump’s campaign coordinated with the Russian government during the campaign.
