Reality catching up with Trump on Russian Federation

At the hearing, Comey and National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers acknowledged a variety of other people at least had access to the information, including many outside the office of the president. But amid a furor over whether Moscow tried to influence the 2016 presidential race on Trump's behalf, lawmakers said they would make public as much of their probes as possible.

"Sometimes the newspaper gets it right, but there's a whole lot of wrong information allegedly about classified activities in the newspaper", he said, explaining, "we don't call them to correct it" because the Federal Bureau of Investigation doesn't want to "compound" the damage "bad people" have done.

Meanwhile, Republicans have sought to focus on leaks of classified information on the issue to the media, as well as Trump's counter-allegation that Obama ordered surveillance on his Trump Tower in NY.

The claims have riveted the American public for weeks, and the stakes for the tycoon-turned-president could hardly be higher.

Trump and his entourage's possible ties with President Vladimir Putin's Russian Federation have been the subject of much speculation since before the Republican billionaire was elected on November 8. What does matter is this: "The Russians successfully meddled in our democracy, and our intelligence agencies have concluded that they will do so again".

Importantly, that investigation includes whether there was coordination between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

On Sunday, House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes reiterated to Fox News that "no evidence of collusion" between Trump's team and Russian Federation had been found ahead of the first public meeting on the matter.

"We will never know whether the Russian intervention was determinative in such a close election".

He said that the FBI's investigation would also look into whether any crimes were committed. But the fact that there's evidence to suggest possible collusion between the president's campaign and a foreign enemy reinforces the need for a special prosecutor to oversee such an investigation. "We know there was not a wiretap on Trump Tower".

A spokesman for Obama called the accusation "false" and said "neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any USA citizen".

Those claims sparked anger in London, where GCHQ, a close partner of United States spy agencies, branded the allegation "utterly ridiculous".

The committee, with LoBiondo, also chairman of the House CIA Subcommittee, is investigating Russian hacking that intelligence officials said could have influenced the election.

The president's political position was already shaky heading into Monday's hearing, the first of several public sessions the House and Senate intelligence committees are expected to hold.

Flynn later admitted talking to the ambassador about U.S. relations with Russia just as the Obama administration was slapping punitive new sanctions and expelling three dozen Russian officials over the election interference.
