FBI director James Comey and his agency are currently investigating Trump campaign's alleged contact with Russia as the Kremlin meddled in the election. "It includes investigating the nature of any links between any individuals associates in the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination," Comey said.

Comey wouldn't reveal who is under investigation.

Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee dropped names like campaign Chairman Paul Manafort who was fired over the Summer. "Paul Manafort who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time, but beyond that," White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said.

"But he was the chairman of the campaign," Jonathan Karl said.

Manafort has repeatedly denied any connection to Russia or the DNC hack, so has Trump ally Roger Stone. "To make it clear, I have no relationship with the Russians," Stone said.

Comey also came out strong against Trump's unsubstantiated claims that former President Obama wiretapped him. "So President Obama could not unilaterally order a wiretap of anyone?" California Rep. Adam Schiff said.

"No president could," Comey said.

Supporters at Trump's rally in Kentucky Monday night questioned Comey's credibility. "I think Comey is very untrustworthy. I think he's lost a lot of trust with a lot of Americans," Trump supporter Dan Baker said.

White House officials said it still has complete confidence in the FBI director.

And Tuesday morning, House Speaker Paul Ryan said nothing new was learned from Comey's testimony.
