Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday that he was not able to confirm or deny that his agency was investigating potential links between Russia and the Donald Trump presidential campaign.
Democratic Oregon Senator Ron Wyden asked Comey about Russian media reports indicating that the Russian foreign minister claimed to have been in contact with Trump campaign officials. “My question for you, Director Comey, is has the FBI investigated these reported relationships? And if so, what are the agency findings?” he asked.
“I would never comment on investigation whether we have one or not in an open forum like this,” Comey said. “I really can’t answer one way or another.”
“Will you provide an unclassified response to these questions and release it to the American people prior to January 20?” Wyden pressed. January 20 is the date of Trump’s inauguration.
“Sir, I will answer any question you ask, but the answer will likely be the same as I just gave you. I can’t talk about it,” Comey responded.
