US Lawmaker: 'No Evidence Of Collusion' Between Trump Campaign, Russia

Rep. Devin Nunes, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence

Trump's tweet comes the same day as the House Intelligence Committee holds its first public hearing on Russia's involvement in the 2016 election. President Trump has continued to stand by the unsubstantiated claims, including while meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel Friday. They'll also be asked about allegations Trump made that President Obama tapped Trump Tower during the 2016 election. "However, we continue to investigate this question", he said.

"This work is very complex, and there is no way for me to give you a timetable for when it will be done", Comey told the House Intelligence Committee.

The top two representatives on the committee said documents the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation delivered late last week offered no evidence that the Obama administration had wiretapped Trump Tower, the president's New York City headquarters.

A separate tweet referenced James Clapper, the director of national intelligence under President Barack Obama, who has said that Trump's allegation that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower is false.

But he said he has been authorised by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI is investigating the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. A new Reuters investigation reveals dozens of Russian elites have invested almost $100 million in seven Trump-branded luxury buildings in Florida.

Mr Trump's unproven allegations against his predecessor have left him increasingly isolated, with fellow Republican as well as Democratic lawmakers saying they've seen nothing from intelligence agencies to support his claim.

He said the investigation includes the nature of any links between individuals associated with Mr Trump's campaign and the Russian government, and whether there was any co-ordination between Russian efforts and the campaign. "Must find leaker now!" Mr Trump tweeted early on Monday as news coverage on the Russian Federation allegations dominated news bulletins.

Britain's GCHQ Denies 'Ridiculous' Claim It Helped Wiretap Trump
While the NSA did bug Merkel's phones, Trump's claims that he was wire-tapped during the campaign have been so-far unfounded. Spicer's briefing was expected to be a humdinger and it did not disappoint, despite starting more than an hour late.

Mr Trump also suggested, without evidence, that Mrs Clinton's campaign was in contact with Russian Federation and had possibly thwarted a federal investigation. US intelligence officials have not publicly raised the possibility of contacts between the Clintons and Moscow.

He said the FBI started investigating the matter in July and that its work was still in the early stages.

Other congressional committees also are investigating the possible Russian connection, mostly behind closed doors.

A hearing Monday before one of several congressional panels probing allegations of Russian meddling, the House Intelligence Committee, could allow for the greatest public accounting to date of investigations that have shadowed the Trump administration in its first two months.

Trump's public meltdown is yet another smoke signal that there's probably a fire in camp Russian Federation.

He said the panel was investigating whether other names were leaked.
