A day after FBI Director James Comey publicly confirmed in testimony to the House Intelligence Committee that his agency was investigating alleged Russian attempts to meddle in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, a Kremlin spokesman criticized the U.S. for "going around in circles" on the issue, Sputnik News reported.

Insisting that the participants in the Congressional hearing are confused, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that "they are trying to find the confirmation of their own conclusions, but they can't find any evidence and are instead going around in circles."

Comey said during his testimony that the intelligence community believes the Russian government coordinated cyberattacks on Democratic Party officials with the goal of helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton and also confirmed that the FBI is probing whether there were any links between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, Politico reported.

Peskov said that the Kremlin would prefer to stay on the sidelines of what are internal American discussions, but stressed that "it can hardly be considered a constructive contribution to the development of bilateral relations."

Russia has repeatedly refuted the allegations on its alleged role in the U.S. election, calling the claims groundless. Trump has also denied any collusion between members of his presidential campaign and Russian officials.
