FBI Director James Comey has confirmed that they will be looking into any possible links between Trump's winning Presidential campaign and potential ties it had with Russia.

The announcement was made as both he and the Director of the NSA Mike Rogers appeared before the House intelligence panel today.

The FBI Director's full statement on the investigation was as follows:

When asked about specifics Comey said that they've known for months that Russia had planned to "hurt America's democracy, hurt Clinton, and help Trump."

Comey also told the House that they found no evidence to support Trump's claim that President Obama had wiretapped his phone: "I have no information that supports those tweets, and we have looked carefully inside the DoJ has asked me to share with you that the answer is the same for the DoJ in all its components."
