President Donald Trump is accusing Democrats of fabricating allegations of election interference against Russia and creating more “fake news.”
His tweets came just hours before a congressional hearing on Russia. The House Intelligence Committee will hear from FBI Director James Comey on whether U.S. officials believe Russia tried to bolster Trump’s chances in the election and if there were any connections between Moscow and Trump’s campaign aides.
During an interview with NBC earlier this month, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper did tell Chuck Todd there was “no evidence” of such collusion.
Moreover, last Sunday Devin Nunes, head of the House of Representatives intelligence committee, made the remark on Fox News.
There is no evidence so far that President Donald Trump’s campaign team colluded with Russia during the 2016 US election, a top lawmaker says.
