Trump Takes Another Jab at Ex-49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick

Trump's tweets came on the morning that FBI Director James Comey and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers are scheduled to testify on allegations of Russian hacking, and whether there was a connection with the Trump campaign.

He also confirmed Mr Trump's administration - and people associated with it - are being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for alleged Russian collusion with the election.

Nunes also denied an unsubstantiated claim from Trump that there had been a wiretap on his Trump Tower in ny but said it was possible other surveillance was used against the Republican.

"With respect to the president's tweets about alleged wiretapping directed at him by the prior administration, I have no information that supports those tweets", he told the house intelligence committee.

Schiff said he expects Comey's testimony will definitively put an end to Trump's wiretap allegations.

"I can not say what we are doing and who we are investigating".

"We don't have any information that supports those tweets", Comey testified. There's no evidence to back up that suggestion, either.

Both factions have been laying claim to the speakership of the Assembly and unable to agree on who to actually preside at the plenary.

"I hope you find those guys and I hope you crack them on the head", Stewart said. "Mr. King, it's not something I can comment on", Comey replied.

Later, Comey added that it wasn't his intention nor Rogers's intention to say whether the Russian government had influenced the election.

"The political atmosphere is just nasty", said Richard Benedetto, a professor of government and journalism at American University and former longtime White House correspondent. "But I do think in the last six weeks, couple of months, there's been. a lot of conversation about classified matters that's ending up in the media".

"No individual can direct electronic surveillance of anyone", Comey said.

Hours before the hearing, Mr Trump took to Twitter to deliver a pre-emptive rebuttal, accusing Democrats of inventing a scandal. "That was a statement made by a very talented lawyer on Fox".

Earlier during the hearing, Senator Devin Nunes, the Republican chairman of the committee, debunked Mr Trump's claim that his predecessor listened in on his communications, but did not rule out other surveillance methods. Rogers responded that his agency was focused on foreign rather than domestic affairs but said he did not have evidence of vote tampering.

But Democrats have expressed concerns that the White House and Republicans would like to stifle the issue, and are calling for an independent probe.

Yet any lack of detail from Comey will likely be contrasted with public comments he made previous year when closing out an investigation into Hillary Clinton's email practices and then, shortly before Election Day, announcing that the probe would be revived following the discovery of additional emails. "Obama's Central Intelligence Agency director said so". Obama's Director of National Intelligence said so.
