Comey stresses that the Russian hack is not a partisan issue: 'They're coming after America'

Former FBI Director James Comey wanted there to be "no fuzz" on the question of if the Russians hacked the 2016 presidential election. "They did it with purpose, they did it with sophistication, they did it with overwhelming technical efforts," he emphasized Thursday.

But there was one point in particular Comey wanted to make: "They will be back," he said. "They're going to come for whatever party they choose to try to work on the behalf of."

Later, Comey put it in different terms. "They're coming after America," he said. "They think that this great experiment of ours is a threat to them, so they're going to try to run it down and dirty it up as much as possible." Watch below. Jeva Lange
