Week of hearings, testimonies and votes on agenda for Trump administration

Week of hearings, testimonies and votes on agenda for Trump administration

But Comey will also face questioning about President Trump's allegation that former President Obama wiretapped - or more broadly surveilled, the goings on at Trump Tower during or after the election.

"There was no FISA warrant that I'm aware of to tap Trump Tower", Nunes said on "Fox News Sunday" of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

He repeated an unsubstantiated claim that Britain's cyber intelligence organization conducted the surveillance at Obama's behest, a claim the agency GBHQ flatly denied; and mentioned during German Chancellor Angela Merkel's first visit to the Trump White House the Obama administration's monitoring of Merkel's cellphone, a bruising incident in German-U.S. relations. Though Trump and top aides have sought to recast the president's charge to mean he was surveilled in the broader sense - not necessarily wiretapped - they have stood by the claim and expressed confidence that evidence will emerge.

"The information we got on Friday continues to lead us in that direction", Nunes said.

"As far as wiretapping, I guess, by this past administration, at least we have something in common, perhaps", Trump told the German chancellor, referring to a WikiLeaks report in 2015 that the USA had monitored calls involving Merkel and her top aides for years.

Nunes added that he's also seen "no evidence of collusion" between members of Trump's campaign and Moscow - which had been the original intent of the investigation - although Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) disputed that notion, saying on NBC's "Meet the Press" that he felt "there was circumstantial evidence of collusion". The lawmaker said he remained primarily concerned about leaks of USA surveillance of conversations between Flynn and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Russian Federation denies attempting to influence the election.

She answered yes and said she hopes that he's successful.

Trump fired his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, last month after he failed to disclose contacts with Russia's ambassador before Trump took office on January 20.

With the national debate consumed by talk over Trump's wiretapping claim, one USA lawmaker said the president might be well advised to follow the sage parental counsel he received years ago.

Schiff, speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press," said he expected FBI Director James B. Comey to testify clearly at the hearing that there is no factual basis for Trump's wiretapping claims.

Republican Rep. Tom Cole told reporters Friday that Trump should say sorry to Obama if he couldn't support his claims. This week, for example, the administration should benefit from favorable coverage of the confirmation hearings of Trump's respected Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch, but the Intelligence Committee hearing has the capacity to overshadow the judge's testimony.

"And I do believe he owes us that explanation". "There is circumstantial evidence of collusion", Schiff said. But Cruz said Trump still needs to put forward the facts.

"Of course, there's one thing to say there's evidence; there's another thing to say we can prove this or prove it beyond a reasonable doubt", he said.

Regarding the influx of Marines and other service members into Syria, Cotton did not advocate for a specific policy, but said, "I don't think we ought to set arbitrary troop caps".

Intelligence officials have said that Russian Federation was behind the theft of Democratic National Committee emails last summer. "And if there's an active criminal investigation, we need to allow law enforcement to do their job".

The bill, plus fixes to regulations and follow-up legislation, will give every American "access to the kind of coverage they want" and fulfill promises made by Trump during the campaign, Price said.
