Spicer says Trump still isn't ready to withdraw his baseless wiretapping allegations

Roger Stone tweeted Saturday night'I cannot wait to testify before a Senate Hearing to expose the phony Russian narrative of the Clinton Crime Family #NoCollusion

Comey, appearing before the House Intelligence Committee along with National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers, also confirmed for the first time that the FBI was investigating Russian interference, including communications between Trump associates and Russian officials.

A report by the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency (NSA) said Russian leader Vladimir Putin "ordered" a campaign aimed at influencing the election.

House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes is in the cross-hairs for stating there's "no evidence of collusion" between Trump's team and Moscow ahead of what's expected to be heated public hearings former intelligence officers, and political analysts told RT.

Some of Nunes' statements contributed to their concerns, including his confirmation that he had spoken to journalists at the White House's request to dispute reports that Trump's campaign had contact with Russian Federation.

March 20, 2017Bernstein's tweet comes after a Republican congressman lashed out at leaks to the media during FBI Director James Comey's testimony on Monday about Russia's interference in the presidential election. "But it is also possible, maybe more than possible, that they are not coincidental, not disconnected and not unrelated".

Responding to questions on the President's quip, Admiral Rogers admitted that the President's decision to raise that surveillance "certainly complicates things" with German intelligence partners, but added that he believed "the relationship is strong enough" to withstand any damage.

But the Federal Bureau of Investigation director has faced mounting pressure to speak publicly about the situation, amid a relentless series of leaks about seemingly weird communications between high-level Trump aides and Russian intelligence officials.

But Rogers and Comey were silent on the question about whether the Trump campaign worked with Russian Federation to damage Clinton's campaign. Although he was a Trump supporter during the campaign, he is not as closely linked with the president as Nunes is.

Mr Nunes said on Sunday that based on "everything I have up to this morning" there is "no evidence" that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

Mr Flynn was sacked last month after he misled the White House about his conversations with the Russian ambassador before he was appointed national security adviser.

"I've heard, that in fact the first draft of that document came to exact opposite conclusion and because it didn't come to the right conclusion that it was taken away from the analysts who were drafting it, taken up the food chain to the senior management so that they could shape it to put in the right point, which is really a total corruption of the intelligence process".

But the Intelligence Committee's highest ranking Democrat wasn't so convinced. The witness list includes experts, not current Trump administration or intelligence community officials.

"As with any counterintelligence investigation, this will also include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed", he said.

The full Judiciary Committee is also investigating. Members of the Trump administration, including attorney general Jeff Sessions, former national security adviser Michael Flynn and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, have also faced controversy for ties to Russian officials.

The Justice Department's disclosure Friday that it had complied with congressional demands for information regarding Trump's wiretapping tweets could allow Comey to avoid questioning by simply saying that the lawmakers already have the information they requested.

The committee's chairman, Representative Bob Goodlatte, said instead that he would urge the government to continue its investigation.
