BOMBSHELL: Comey likely knew about the Trump tower meeting in June 2016

Why is this important? The meeting happened June 9th, and the investigation didn't open until the end of July, and Comey says he can't answer because the question touches on Mueller's investigation. But if he didn't know about the meeting he could answer that. If he knew, and can't answer, it's because it was related to the Mueller investigation -- which didn't exist at the time.

So Comey knew about the meeting before the investigation opened in July.

How? Did he get the information from Steele, or Perkins-Coie through Baker, or surveillance on Trump?
Transcript of Comey's testimonyWhen did the FBI first learn of credible evidence that the Russian Government was trying to interfere in the 2016 Presidential election?
Mr. Comey. I believe it was with the release in mid June of the DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0 stolen emails.
Mr. Krishnamoorthi. Mid June 2016?
Mr. Comey. Correct.
Mr. Krishnamoorthi. Were you, at that time, aware of the meeting at Trump Tower on June 9th, 2016, between Donald Trump, Junior, Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, and some Russian nationals?
Mr. Comey. I think that's a question that I can't answer because it dives into a nonpublic level of detail about the Russia investigation.
