Congressmen are disappointed with the results of a closed-door meeting with FBI Director James Komi Republic in Russia, which he shared confidential information about the investigation Bureau, reports CNN TV channel with reference to the sources.
“Members of Congress are disappointed with the meeting with Komi Republic of Russia”, — informs the American TV channel.
Earlier Wednesday, the Komi spoke at a public hearing in the Senate. One of the main issues of concern to senators was the investigation of possible relations of Russia with the command of the President of the United States Donald trump. Then the FBI Director could not give a direct answer, citing the confidentiality of information requested by the senators, and promised to give them a separate closed briefing on the subject. At the same time, the Commission noted that Russia continues to interfere in the political processes in the U.S. and other countries.
Then White house spokesman Sean Spicer, commenting on this statement, said that it is the opinion of the FBI. At the same time, Spicer said he did not know what evidence is behind the statements of the Komi Republic in Russia. In turn, the press Secretary of the Russian President, Dmitry Peskov, said that after a review of Spicer he had nothing to add on this topic.
At the end of December 2016, the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama imposed sanctions against nine Russian institutions, companies and individuals for “intervention in election” and “the pressure on us diplomats” working in Russia. Simultaneously, the U.S. Congress has stated its intention to conduct its own investigation on the matter.
No evidence of Russia’s involvement in hacking attacks with the aim of influencing the result of the presidential election, the U.S. government never filed. Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking about these accusations, declared that in the published data there is nothing in the interests of Russia, and hysteria-mongering to distract from their content.
In turn, commenting on the statements by Hillary Clinton about the alleged Russian interference in the election campaign, press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov called allegations against Moscow “completely unfounded”. According to him, such statements based on nothing, no facts were not given.
