Dear Donald,

Your credibility took a severe blow today as FBI director James B. Comey made his opening statement today in sworn testimony in front of the House Intelligence Committee.

“I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI, as part of our counterintelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and that includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts. As with any counterintelligence investigation, this will also include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed.”

I’d like to also point out that this statement directly opposed your tweets from this morning.

“James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!” @realDonaldTrump  3:35AM – 20 Mar 2017

“The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!” @realDonaldTrump  3:49AM – 20 Mar 2017

Furthermore we see that Comey went on to add that the FBI is investigating possible collusion between you and your campaign officials and associates with Russia.

In addition to all of this new information, the information that is lacking, is the information to support the accusations of the wiretapping on Trump Tower that you claim was orchestrated by President Obama.

I can’t say that I’m entirely surprised at the outcomes this far, but it is very satisfying to see some definitive answers being provided.

I’m curious to see how you and your administration will respond and of course eagerly awaiting further updates on the pending investigations.
