FBI: Team Trump Under Investigation Since July 2016

Today we learned three things during FBI Director James Comey's testimony at the House Intelligence Committee hearing:

1. There is NO evidence to support President Trump's unfounded allegation that President Obama ordered a wiretap on Trump Tower.

2. The Trump campaign team has been under investigation for ties to Russian officials who may have have attempted to disrupt the U.S. election. The investigation concerning President Trump and those associated with his campaign has been ongoing since July 2016.

3. With both Clinton and Trump teams being investigated during the campaign, it's worth noting that Comey announced to the nation 12 days before Election Day that Clinton was still under investigation but did not mention Trump. Think on that for a while...

Comey also shared that the FBI has found no evidence that Russian agents had changed actual votes in U.S. voting machines in swing states.

However, President Trump took to Twitter to spin that his own way, saying, "The NSA and FBI tell Congress that Russia did not influence electoral process."

That not what the two intelligence directors said.

While they addressed the idea of "changed votes," that doesn't mean that Russia's leaking stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee didn't influence the election. As a matter of fact we know that the constant drip, drip, drip of emails had an effect on the election.
