Recall we began this entire process, with the President and his staff first denying that the Russians were ever involved. And then falsely claiming that no one from his team was ever in touch with any Russians, we know that's not just the truth. Numerous Trump associates had undisclosed contacts with Russians before and after the election.
Including the President's Attorney General, his former National Security Adviser and his current Senior Adviser, Mr. Krishna. That doesn't even begin to count the host of additional campaign associates and advisers who've also been caught up in this massive web. We saw Mr. Trump's campaign manager, Mr. Manafort, forced to step down over ties to Russian back entities.
The National Security Adviser, General Flynn, had to resign over his lies about engagements with the Russians. And we saw the candidate himself, express an odd and unexplained affection for the Russian dictator while calling for the hacking of his opponent. There's a lot to investigate. Enough of the fact, then Director Comey, publicly acknowledge that he was leading an investigation into those links between Mr Trump's campaign and the Russian government.
As the Director of the FBI, Mr Comey was ultimately responsible for conducting that investigation. Which might explain why you're sitting now as a private citizen.
