Enough with Trump's Russia ties. What about Hillary's e-mails, dammit?

FBI Director James Comey is before Congress today. This about sums it up.

But, more specifically:

Mr. Comey said that it is unusual for the F.B.I. to confirm or deny the existence of any investigations, but in unusual circumstances when it is in the public interest, the bureau sometimes will discuss such matters.

“This is one of those circumstances,” he said.

“The F.B.I., as part of our counterintelligence effort, is investing the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 president election,” he continued, adding that the investigation included looking at whether associates of Mr. Trump were in contact with Russian officials, and colluded with them.
No, still not a single person other than Donald Trump and his stooges have said there's evidence of wiretaps of Trump. Comey confirms the FBI has no evidence and says a president couldn't order a wiretap in any case.
