Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey

FBI Director James Comey refused Wednesday to confirm under oath whether the FBI is investigating accusations that the Obama administration spied on President Trump's election campaign and transition team.

"The president has confidence in the director", Spicer said during Wednesday's press briefing.

There was efforts aimed at voter registration systems, but I suppose in theory, part of the US. Did I make mistakes?

Comey informed Congress 11 days before the November election that the FBI had reopened an investigation into Clinton's use of a private server during her time a secretary of state only months after the country's top law enforcement body had closed the case and recommended no criminal charges.

"I can't consider for a second whose political futures will be affected and in what way", Mr Comey told the senators.

On Wednesday, Spicer shared his take on Clinton's hypothetical scenario.

"It's very hard for me to believe that he felt so sanctimonious about having to come forward", Feinstein said.

Comey said he would give the chairman "all the information you need to address just that challenge, because I don't believe there's any inconsistency - I think there's a misunderstanding, but in a classified setting I'll give you what you need".


"Tell me what you would do?" he asked Sen. Clinton will act as the connector, said one source, bringing donors to these groups and helping raise money for them, too.

He also took time to blast WikiLeaks, which USA officials say abetted Russia's campaign interference operation by publishing stolen documents from the Democratic National Committee which embarrassed Clinton.

But Comey said it was the right choice and he would do it again if he had to.

"It makes me mildly nauseous to think we might have had an impact on the election".

More specifically, the topic was the Federal Bureau of Investigation director revealing that longtime Hillary Clinton advisor Huma Abedin forwarded classified emails to then-husband Anthony Weiner, ostensibly so he could print them out.

Comey refused to reveal any more details about the other major investigation from the 2016 election: Trump campaign aides colluding with Russian officials. And he said the FBI does not expect to have anything to say about the Russian Federation investigation until that one was over.

The notable exception in this fixed process has been Senator Chuck Grassley, who has opened a specific and promising investigation of the FBI's relationship to British agent Christopher Steele and the dodgy dossier as well as Fusion GPS, who employed Steele for opposition research on behalf of the Clinton campaign.

Thomas started off his report by playing a clip of him from January 10 badgering Comey, asking: "Director Comey, were you comfortable with the role you played in the investigation?".
