Only hours after Trump dismissed that his campaign team was being scrutinized by the FBI for possible ties with Russia, FBI Director James Comey confirmed that the investigation is real. (Oh, well) The FBI Director also insisted that there was no evidence that Mr. Obama had ordered a wiretap for Trump tower.

The clamor from Democrats and some Republicans for a more fulsome accounting prompted the White House on Friday to announce that President Barack Obama had ordered a full review of Russian cyber actions during the 2016 campaign. The president wants the report to be completed before he leaves office next month. Officials said Obama intends to declassify as much of the report as possible.
