LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – During a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing today, U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) questioned former FBI Director James Comey about Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and the FBI’s ongoing investigation into contacts between Russia and the Trump campaign.
Senator King pressed former Director Comey on whether Russia’s activity in the 2016 election is a “one-off proposition” or part of a “long-term strategy” in which they would return to meddle in future elections.
Former Director Comey responded, “Oh, it’s a long-term practice of theirs. It’s stepped up a notch in a significant way in ’16. They’ll be back.”
