FBI, 5 other agencies probe possible covert Kremlin aid to Trump. In other words, James Comey is full of shit.
The FBI and five other law enforcement and intelligence agencies have collaborated for months in an investigation into Russian attempts to influence the November election, including whether money from the Kremlin covertly aided President-elect Donald Trump, two people familiar with the matter said.
The agencies involved in the inquiry are the FBI, the CIA, the National Security Agency, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and representatives of the director of national intelligence, the sources said.
Investigators are examining how money may have moved from the Kremlin to covertly help Trump win, the two sources said.

When President-elect Donald J. Trump offered Rick Perry the job of energy secretary five weeks ago, Mr. Perry gladly accepted, believing he was taking on a role as a global ambassador for the American oil and gas industry that he had long championed in his home state.
In the days after, Mr. Perry, the former Texas governor, discovered that he would be no such thing — that in fact, if confirmed by the Senate, he would become the steward of a vast national security complex he knew almost nothing about, caring for the most fearsome weapons on the planet, the United States’ nuclear arsenal.
Sen. Chris Murphy said to Price during his confirmation hearing today, “This whole administration is starting to look like a bit of a get-rich-quick scheme.” Indeed.
Sen. Bob Casey asked Price whether he would guarantee that being a victim of domestic violence would not be considered a preexisting condition, as it has in the past. Price said, “It would be up to legislation.”
