    FBI Director James Comey confirmed Monday that the bureau is investigating possible links and co-ordination between Russia and associates of U.S. President Donald Trump as part of a broader probe of Russian interference in last year's presidential election.

    The extraordinary revelation, and the first public confirmation of an investigation that began last summer, came at the outset of Comey's opening statement in a congressional hearing examining Russian meddling and possible connections between Moscow and Trump's campaign.

    He acknowledged that the FBI does not ordinarily discuss ongoing investigations, but said he'd been authorized to do so given the extreme public interest in this case.

    "This work is very complex, and there is no way for me to give you a timetable for when it will be done," Comey told the House Intelligence Committee.

    The hearing, providing the most extensive public accounting of a matter that has dogged the Trump administration for its first two months, quickly broke along partisan lines. Democrats pressed for details on the status of the FBI's investigation, while Republicans repeatedly focused on news coverage and possible improper disclosures of classified information developed through surveillance.

    Under questioning from the committee's top Democrat, Representative Adam Schiff, he also publicly contradicted a series of tweets from Trump that declared the Republican candidate's phones had been ordered tapped by President Barack Obama during the campaign.

    "I have no confirmation that supports those tweets, and we have looked carefully inside the FBI," Comey said. The same was true, he added, of the Justice Department.

    He also disputed allegations that British intelligence services were involved in the wiretapping.

    Comey was the latest government official to reject Trump's claims, made without any evidence, that Obama had wiretapped his New York skyscraper during the campaign. Representative Devin Nunes, a California Republican and chairman of the House intelligence committee, also rejected it earlier in the hearing.

    Comey was testifying along with National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers.

    Trump tweets hours before hearing
    Trump took to Twitter before the hearing began, accusing Democrats of making up allegations about his campaign associates' contact with Russia during the election. He said Congress and the FBI should be going after media leaks and maybe even Hillary Clinton instead.

    "The real story that Congress, the FBI and others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!" Trump tweeted early Monday as news coverage on the Russia allegations dominated the morning's cable news.

    Trump also suggested, without evidence, that Clinton's campaign was in contact with Russia and had possibly thwarted a federal investigation. U.S. intelligence officials have not publicly raised the possibility of contacts between the Clintons and Moscow. Officials investigating the matter have said they believe Moscow had hacked into Democrats' computers in a bid to help Trump's election bid.

    Public accounting
    Monday's hearing, one of several by congressional panels probing allegations of Russian meddling, could allow for the greatest public accounting to date of investigations that have shadowed the Trump administration in its first two months.

    The top two lawmakers on the committee said Sunday that documents the Justice Department and FBI delivered late last week offered no evidence that the Obama administration had wiretapped Trump Tower, the president's New York City headquarters.

    But the panel's ranking Democrat said the material offered circumstantial evidence that American citizens colluded with Russians in Moscow's efforts to interfere in the presidential election.

    "There was circumstantial evidence of collusion; there is direct evidence, I think, of deception," Schiff said on NBC's Meet the Press. "There's certainly enough for us to conduct an investigation."

    Nunes said: "For the first time the American people, and all the political parties now, are paying attention to the threat that Russia poses."

    "We know that the Russians were trying to get involved in our campaign, like they have for many decades. They're also trying to get involved in campaigns around the globe and over in Europe," he said on Fox News Sunday.

    The Senate Intelligence Committee has scheduled a similar hearing for later in the month.

    Though Comey would not discuss specific evidence, he went far beyond his testimony from a hearing in January, when he refused to confirm or deny the existence of any investigation exploring possible connections between Trump associates and Russia, consistent with the FBI's longstanding policy of not publicly discussing its work.

    His appearances on Capitol Hill since then have occurred in classified settings, often with small groups of lawmakers, and he has made no public statements connected to the Trump campaign or Russia.

    Any lack of detail from Comey on Monday would likely be contrasted with public comments he made last year when closing out an investigation into Clinton's email practices and then, shortly before Election Day, announcing that the probe would be revived following the discovery of additional emails.

    美国国会首次针对俄罗斯干预美大选开听证会
    VOA, 2017年3月21日 06:47
    [​IMG]

    2017年3月20日,联邦调查局局长詹姆士·科米(左)和国家安全局局长迈克·罗杰斯(右)在众议院情报委员会听证会上作证。听证调查的问题是俄罗斯在2016年美国大选中的作用。

    华盛顿 —
    美国联邦众议院情报委员会3月20日首次针对俄罗斯干预美国2016年总统大选召开听证会,联邦调查局局长科米(James Comey)和国家安全局局长、海军上将罗杰斯(Adm. Mike Rogers)出席作证。

    美国联邦调查局(FBI)局长科米证实,FBI正在积极调查俄罗斯企图干预美国大选的指称,包括是否在竞选期间与川普有任何串通。

    科米说:“经司法部授权,我在此证实,作为反间谍工作的一部分,联邦调查局正在调查俄罗斯政府针对美国2016年总统大选的干预,这包括了任何川普团队成员与俄罗斯政府的关系,以及竞选团队和俄罗斯之间是否存在任何协调工作,反间谍调查工作也包括评估这其中是否涉及任何犯罪。”

    科米在听证会上还说,俄罗斯干预美国选举目的为伤害美国民主制度和克林顿,并帮助川普当选。

    众议院情报委员会主席努涅斯在听证会的开场申述中提到,俄罗斯对美国所发动的网络攻击和政治干预可被视为自911恐怖攻击以来美国情报部门面临的最大挫败。他希望有关单位能尽早厘清俄罗斯政府到底进行了那些活动、美国机构或个人是否遭到俄罗斯政府部门的不当监控。

    科米:无证据支持川普遭窃听之言论

    听证会的另一个焦点围绕在有关川普总统指控他的前任总统奥巴马在竞选期间针对川普大厦进行窃听。

    面对议员质询,科米答说,他没有掌握任何信息,以支持川普总统有关奥巴马总统下令在去年11月大选前的几个星期窃听他在川普大厦电话的指称。

    科米进一步强调,“在美国有一套法律框架,在这个框架下,要由法庭来颁发许可,才能进行电子监视,无论是刑事案件,还是国安案件,都要出示合理根据,并受到认真监督。这是一套严格的程序,涉及政府的所有三个分支,这是我们自1970年代末期以来的做法。因此,在美国没有哪一个人可以下令监听其他任何人,这必须经过申请程序,请一位法官来下达命令。”

    众议院情报委员会首席民主党成员希夫(Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA)继续追问:“所以奥巴马总统本人不能下达指令监听任何人?”科米回答说:“没有总统可以。”

    共和党人:也要追查泄密

    最近两星期来,尽管众议院议长瑞安(Rep. Paul Ryan, R-WI)和国会参众两院情报委员会重量级议员都表示没有证据支持川普3月4日推文中的窃听之说,但川普坚持他的指控,不肯退后。

    白宫官员说,川普总统的“奥巴马窃听”说法涵盖奥巴马政府对川普团队的各种监视活动,不是指奥巴马本人亲自窃听川普电话。

    众议院情报委员会主席努涅斯在星期一的听证会上也谈到了他的看法:“几个星期以来,我们已知道川普大厦里头并没有具体的监听情况发生,但其它针对川普总统或他的助手的监视活动仍是可能的。”

    川普总统还指责包括奥巴马前朝旧臣在内的政府官员向媒体泄露国家机密,并说这才是真正需要调查的问题。

    努涅斯众议员说,对泄密行为也要进行调查。他说,向报纸泄露有关前川普国家安全顾问弗林与俄罗斯官员交谈内容的做法就是犯罪。但联调局长科米拒绝证实是否正在调查内部泄密问题。

    议员在听证会上询问科米是否认同外界有关川普与俄罗斯之间联系的种种指控是反映了美国政治社会再次兴起“麦卡锡主义”,亦即在缺乏足够证据下指控他人不忠、颠覆、叛国等罪,使用不公正断言、调查方式对批评者进行打击。科米答,他个人对于任何“主义”之类的名词都尽量避开,选择不参与。引来现场一阵笑声。
