House Intel Chairman: No Evidence Yet of Communication Between Trump Officials and Russian Intel

Contradicting reports from The New York Times and CNN, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) said at a press availability that after briefings from intelligence agencies, he had not seen any evidence of communication between officials of the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence.

“As of right now, I don’t have any evidence any phone calls” or contact between Russia intelligence and Trump officials Nunes said.

Nunes added that it was not only the FBI that came to this conclusion but the “entire [Intelligence Community].”

Despite this development, Nunes assured reporters that the House Intelligence Committee was still investigating the matter. However, according to Nunes, multiple intelligence sources have told him, “There’s nothing there.”

The New York Times reported that the Trump campaign “had repeated contacts with Russian intelligence” during the 2016 campaign, while CNN reported that Russian intelligence had attempted to blackmail the President.
