USA: Comey says NYT article 'almost entirely wrong' over Russia investigation

United States, Washington D.C
June 8, 2017 at 21:48 GMT +00:00 · Published

James Comey, former FBI chief (English): "Yes."

Tom Cotton, Senator of Arkansas (English): "Did you have, at the time that story was published, any indication of any contact between Trump people and Russians, intelligence officers other government officials or close associates of the Russian government?"

James Comey, former FBI chief (English): "That is one I can't answer sitting here."

James Comey, former FBI chief (English): "It never occurred to me till the President's tweet, I'm not being facetious; I hope there are."

Joe Manchin, US Senator of West Virginia (English): "Both of you, both of you are on the same findings here, you both hope there are tapes and recordings?"

James Comey, former FBI chief (English): "All I can do is hope, the President surely knows whether he taped me, and if he did, and my feelings aren't hurt, release the entire - release all the tapes, I'm good with it."

Former FBI chief James Comey stated that a New York Times article titled 'Trump campaign aides have repeated contacts with Russian intelligence', was "almost entirely wrong", when testifying before the US Senate Intelligence Committee, in Washington DC, Thursday.

When Senator of Arkansas Tom Cotton, asked of Comey, "Would it be fair to characterise that story as almost entirely wrong?" Comey responded "yes".

In the same hearing, Comey was asked about whether he knew of any tape recordings of conversations with the President. Comey replied that he was unaware of any such recordings, but that if there were "my feelings aren't hurt" and to "release all the tapes".

Talking about Russia's alleged cyber-intrusion on the presidential elections, the former FBI chief said, "it's not about Republicans or Democrats, they [Russia] are coming after America".
