Ousted FBI director: no US officials told me to stop Russia probe


June 8, 2017, 5:50 PM (IDT)

In his testimony on Thursday morning at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, former FBI director James Comey said he has no doubt that Russia tried to interfere in the 2016 election. He stated that neither US President Donald Trump nor any administration officials ever told him to stop the investigation into alleged Russian meddling. Comey said that he was confused by the Trump administration's "shifting explanations" for firing him, and claimed the administration chose to defame him and the FBI by saying the bureau was in disarray and that the workforce had lost faith.
