DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. March 20, 2017, 6:48 PM (IDT)

FBI Director James Comey confirmed three investigations were ongoing when he testified before the House Intelligence Committee Monday. They were: possible links between Trump associates and Russia during the 2016 election campaign; Russian interference in the campaign to hurt Hillary Clinton – and what Comey called the logical flip side, which was to help her opponent, Trump –  as part of Moscow’s campaign to undermine faith in the American democracy, and the leaks of classified information by unnamed intelligence sources. The FBI Director appeared along with National Security Director Michael Rogers

In his opening statement, Comey said: “I’ve 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. 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.”

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
