Report: FBI Director Comey tells Trump there’s no evidence Russians swayed election


There’s no credible evidence to support the CIA’s claims that Russia influenced the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, FBI Director James Comey told President-elect Donald Trump in a telephone conversation,  Townhall reported.

Sources who were briefed on the telephone conversation revealed to Townhall that Comey’s assessment was supported by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

CIA Director John Brennan was the only person of authority in the intelligence community to assert that Russian sanctioned hacking influenced the election.

“And Brennan takes his marching orders from President Obama,” the sources quoted Comey as saying.

Townhall reported:

In Comey’s view, the leaks to the New York Times and the Washington Post alleging that the Russians tried—and perhaps even succeeded—in tilting the election to Trump were a Democratic Party effort to delegitimize Trump’s victory.

During their phone conversations, Comey informed Trump that the FBI had been alert for the past year to the danger that the Russians would try to cause mischief during the U.S. presidential election.


And it wouldn’t logically follow that the Russian government would want to influence the election in Trump’s favor.

“It’s also unclear why Putin would have preferred dealing with Donald Trump, who has promised a major military buildup, over Hillary Clinton, who would have continued Barack Obama’s cautious policies toward the Kremlin,” the source told Townhall.

Nonetheless, the White House is actively promoting the notion that not only did Russia skewer the election in Trump’s favor, but that the president-elect had a hand in it.
