Comey: “No Doubt” Russia Interfered With Election, But Did Not Affect Vote Totals

The former FBI director said that there was no indication of interference with vote totals from the Russian government.

Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, former FBI Director James Comey expressed confidence that Russian interference in the 2016 election did not extend to the vote totals in various states.

Comey also affirmed that he has “no doubt” that Russia was behind the interference in the election.

“Are you confident that no votes cast in the 2016 presidential election were altered?” Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) asked Comey.

“I’m confident,” Comey responded. “When I had left as director, I had seen no indication of that whatsoever.”
