Comey Has 'No Doubt' on Russia's Involvement in US Election Hacking

James Comey testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee that he believes Russia's government attempted to interfere in the US elections last year.

Former FBI Director James Comey today testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee that he has "no doubt" that the Russian government was involved in last year's hacking of emails in Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and the Democratic Party, according to a Washington Post report.

When Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) posed the question, "Do you have any doubt that the Russian government was behind the intrusions" of the email accounts, Comey responded: "No, no doubt," the Post reported.

Comey also noted that he was "confident" that the ballots cast in the presidential election were not tampered with, and that he saw no indication that such activity took place.
