House Intel Committee Chair: No Proof Yet of Trump Campaign Plot with Russia

WASHINGTON Ė The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Republican Devin Nunes, said on Sunday that he has seen no proof of any alleged plot between the election campaign of President Donald Trump and Russia during the run-up to the 2016 vote.

In an interview with Fox News, Nunes was asked directly if he had seen any evidence of any collusion between Trumpís campaign and the Kremlin with the aim of interfering in the November election to favor the magnate.

ďIíll give you a very simple answer: No,Ē responded Nunes, who added that so far no evidence of collusion has emerged.

Nunesí remarks come one day before the first public hearing in Congress on alleged Russian interference in the election, in which Trump defeated Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a stunning upset.

The hearing will take place before the committee the congressman chairs, and scheduled to testify, among others, is FBI Director James Comey.

The House Intel Committee is the body tasked with investigating supposed Russian government interference in the election, and Trump has asked that his claim of alleged illegal wiretapping of him by his predecessor, Barack Obama, also be included in the probe.

To date, Nunes and Senate Intelligence Committee leaders have said that they have no evidence that the Obama administration intercepted the communications to and from Trump Tower, where Trump lived and worked during the election campaign.

The Department of Justice last Friday delivered a dossier to the House and Senate Intel Committees containing information about Obamaís alleged spying on Trump.

In that regard, Nunes insisted in his Fox interview that, just as he said some days ago, that he still has seen no evidence of any telephone wiretapping, contrary to Trumpís unprecedented and controversial claim.

Nevertheless, the president has remained firm in his accusation and on Friday, going so far during a White House press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, to repeat it.
