BRUSSELS BLOW: FBI director admits Vladimir Putin's Russia SUPPORTS Brexit

BRUSSELS BLOW: FBI director admits Vladimir Putin's Russia SUPPORTS Brexit

While Donald was quick to call Russia's alleged role as "fake", the president was oddly silent about how James is expected to tell lawmakers that the allegation that President Barack Obama, 55, wiretapped Trump Tower during the election is the real "fake news". Rogers responded that his agency was focused on foreign rather than domestic affairs but said he did not have evidence of vote tampering.

Himes asked about that as well - Rogers said he didn't want to comment on the tweet, though he did say, "I assume the comment is created to address the leaking of such information".

Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, suggested Mr Putin had encouraged President Trump's candidacy because he was in favour of movements which undermined European unity. Not quite, Mr. President.

The committee's chairman, republican Devin Nunes had opened the hearing by denying the United States president's wiretapping claim but did not rule out other surveillance methods.

President Trump has been dogged by claims that his associates had ties to Russian officials.

FBI Director James Comey said today that his department is investigating "any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and any attempts to coordinate".

Still, Comey and Rogers declined to comment on whether the probe had found that contacts between Trump aides and advisors and Russian officials during the campaign amounted to collusion, citing the need to protect an ongoing investigation.

Comey did not comment on further details of the investigation.

According to Stewart, the intelligence community agreed with him that Russian Federation wanted to disrupt the election but didn't favor one candidate or the other up until Obama asked for an investigation in December.

In an immediate response, the Trump administration insisted that "nothing has changed".

"There was circumstantial evidence of collusion; there is direct evidence, I think, of deception", Mr Schiff said.

Investigation into leaks, Russia, the Trump campaign and how they all fit together.

Federal Bureau of Investigation has been looking into any ties between Trump advisers and Russian agents during the campaign.

Last week, the leadership of the Senate Intelligence Committee released a joint statement saying it saw no indication that Trump Tower was the subject of surveillance either before or after Election Day.

"James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russian Federation".

"To put in a homely metaphor, I hate the New England Patriots, and no matter who they play, I'd like them to lose". "The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a awful campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!" he blasted at 3:49 this morning.

Lawmakers' lingering anger over Comey's handling of a probe of Hillary Clinton's private email server use past year will make today's hearing even more highly charged.

The Utah Republican criticized government officials of "hiding behind" newspaper reporters to get out information, including allegedly wrong information.
