Collins says Trump owes America an explanation on wiretap claim

"If the president really wants to achieve the legislative. proposals he is recommending, whether tax cuts or infrastructure spending or even the healthcare bill, he has got to be able to reach out and develop the kind of consensus necessary to get legislation through", he said.

"This president has to get away from tweeting, concentrate on the job of being president of the United States, focus on making sure that what he says is true and is backed up by the facts", he warned.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released a statement calling for President Donald Trump to apologize after FBI Director James Comey testified at a House hearing on Monday. Russian Federation has denied the assertion it was involved in hacked emails and other attempts to influence the race. "You know, we have both the House Intelligence Committee, the Senate Intelligence Committee, both Republicans and Democrats who are saying there is absolutely no evidence".

"President Trump has been desperate to distract attention from the FBI investigation into the Kremlin's grip on his administration".

US investigators say Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the hacking into the computers at the Democratic National Committee.

Trump has been dogged by allegations that his associates had ties to Russian officials. Obama, through a spokesman, denied that he or any White House official ordered surveillance.

"The one crime we know that's been committed is that one: the leaking of someone's name", Nunes said. I would characterize it this way, at the outset of the investigation, there was circumstantial evidence of collusion.

The wiretapping claim was revived Friday, when Trump refused to back down from the claim, citing a Fox News analyst's contention that GCHQ, the British electronic intelligence agency, had helped Obama wiretap Trump. Director Comey's testimony put the last nail into President Trump's mendacious wiretapping claims. But the top lawmakers on both committees have said they have seen no indications that Trump Tower was wiretapped.

On Sunday, Republican Congressman Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House panel, told Fox News that new information lawmakers received Friday from the Justice Department about the possibility of a wiretap has not changed his conclusion. Representatives Charlie Dent and Will Hurd, also Republicans, made similar comments. "And, frankly, unless you can produce some pretty compelling proof, then I think that President Obama is owed an apology in that regard because, if he didn't do it, we shouldn't be reckless in accusations that he did".
