Comey: Russian U.S. Election Meddling 'A Big Deal'

Former FBI Director James Comey said there was no question Russia meddled in 2016 U.S election campaign, saying that it was "as unfake as you can possibly get." Testifying before the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee in Washington, D.C. on June 8, Comey agreed with U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich that Russia had committed a "hostile act." Comey was fired in May by U.S. President Donald Trump while overseeing a criminal investigation into potential ties between the Trump campaign and Moscow. (Reuters)
