However, John Brennan told the House Committee there is enough information and intelligence on the matter to warrant an FBI investigation.
Former CIA Director John Brennan told the House Select Committee on Intelligence on Tuesday that he doesn’t have any evidence to support claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) asked Brennan if there is any evidence that supports Democratic claims that there is evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“I encountered, and I am aware of, information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and U.S. persons involved in the Trump campaign,” Brennan told Gowdy.
Brennan informed Gowdy that he found this intelligence concerning, and it raised questions in his mind of whether the Russians were able to gain the cooperation of the individuals in question.
“I don’t know whether or not such collusion, and that’s your term, such collusion existed. I don’t know,” Brennan concluded. “But I know that there was a sufficient basis of information and intelligence that required further investigation by the Bureau to determine whether or not U.S. persons were actively conspiring, colluding with Russian officials.”
