"FBI Director Comey: fmr".

Comey's appearance was set to start at 10 a.m. EDT Monday.

It is not clear how much new information will emerge Monday, and the hearing's open setting unquestionably puts Comey in a hard situation if he's asked to discuss an ongoing investigation tied to the campaign of the president.

"James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia", Trump tweeted. Rep. Trey "Benghazi" Gowdy (R-SC) aggressively questioned Comey about "the felonious dissemination of classified material"-apparently not too interested in any actual disturbing revelations about Trump's former national security advisor-and attempted to get the Federal Bureau of Investigation director to agree that journalists should be punished for publishing information from classified reports".

Both Trump's fellow Republicans as well as Democrats in Congress said they were frustrated by what they consider the intelligence community's failure to provide enough information about any contacts with Russian Federation, as well as Trump's claim, made without evidence, that his predecessor, Democrat Barack Obama, ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower.

Members of both parties have threatened to subpoena administration officials or delay confirmation hearings for Trump's nominees until their requests for information are answered. But the pair only denied that any votes were changed as a result of Russian influence in the election, which has been documented in a report compiled by the United States intelligence community. Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., asked Comey and Rogers to respond to Trump's tweet about their testimony.

"We've offered no opinion, have no view, have no information on potential impact, cause it's never something that we looked at", Comey said.

He picked up the slack with Isaiah Thomas out as he took 16 shots, the most in one game he has taken in over two months. Despite the loss, Horford was the best player on the floor on Sunday, posting a 41.6 net rating and a 35.41 nERD score.

The hearing was being hosted by the House Intelligence Committee, which announced in January it would launch a bipartisan probe to look into possible communications between the Kremlin and the campaigns.

The Republican head of a congressional panel investigating accusations of Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election says a leak involving former Trump aide Michael Flynn was a crime and that the panel was probing whether other names were leaked.

"And that includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia's efforts".

Trump has always been shadowed by questions about his ties to Russian Federation, given his friendly posture toward Moscow and his advisers' curious web of ties to Russian Federation. Trump referred to it as "the real story" in a tweet early Monday morning.

Here's the full text of Pelosi's statement.

Both Manafort and Flynn were fired by Trump after revelations about their connections to Russian Federation.
