Russia Foreign Minister Lavrov Makes Comey Joke

During a Wednesday morning press conference, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov cracked a joke about President Trump’s dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, who was heading an investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election. “Was he fired? You’re kidding! You’re kidding!” said Lavrov, before scoffing and then walking off with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Lavrov will be meeting with the press later Wednesday. Trump’s team is also under investigation for potentially helping Moscow meddle in the election, and former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn’s associates reportedly received subpoenas to that effect on Tuesday evening, just as the news about Comey broke.
