Former FBI Director James Comey confirmed that the FBI investigations found no evidence of President Trump colluding with Russians.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the memo that Comey released to the media on Wednesday in advance of his testimony to Congress showed that he gave Trump assurance on three different occasions that Trump was not part of the FBI investigation.
The first time occurred during a meeting shortly after the election when Comey first met Trump.
I [earlier] discussed with the FBI’s leadership team whether I should be prepared to assure [then] President-elect Trump that we were not investigating him personally. That was true; we did not have an open counterintelligence case on him. We agreed I should do so if circumstances warranted. During our one-on-one meeting at Trump Tower, based on President-elect Trump’s reaction to the briefing and without him directly asking the question, I offered that assurance.
— James Comey
Comey confirmed that in his first meeting with Trump after the inauguration that he again assured Trump that the FBI had found no evidence of any collusion between the President and the Russians.
On March 30, the President again asked Comey to “lift the cloud” that the rumors of a Russian investigation were putting over his administration. Comey again assured the President that the FBI had found nothing that implicated Trump.
