Susan Collins of ME says she doesn't yet know if President Donald Trump owes an apology to former President Barack Obama over his accusations of a wiretap.
Nunes was asked if there was any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.
Monday's hearing was also expected to address a second explosive issue: Trump's unsubstantiated accusations that the Obama administration wiretapped his phone at Trump Tower in NY during the campaign.
Nunes has said that the intelligence committee probe focuses in part on who revealed the fact that Flynn had unreported private contacts with the Russians over the issue of global sanctions against Moscow - a disclosure which led to his forced resignation as Trump's national security adviser.
Members of the House Intelligence Committee will press FBI Director James Comey to provide details of any investigation his agents are conducting over contacts between Donald Trump's associates and Russian Federation, during or after the presidential campaign.
Nunes stressed Sunday that he also hasn't seen evidence that the Trump campaign collaborated with the Kremlin and wanted the focus placed on leaks from the intelligence community.
The leaders of the House intelligence committee wrote the three agencies earlier this week, asking for details about Americans who surfaced in intelligence collections between June 2016 and January. "That is very possible, and we don't have the answers to those questions yet", he said.
The wiretapping issue mushroomed last month, when Trump's national security adviser Michael Flynn was forced to resign after it was revealed he had misled top officials over his contacts with Russian Federation. "What the president said was just patently false and the wrecking ball it created now has banged into our British allies and our German allies".
"Were there physical wiretaps of Trump Tower? "It never hurts to say you're sorry", Hurd told ABC's This Week. If the White House has any, he added on CNN, "Please share it with us". Schiff said. "Was there any form of collusion?"
"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 U.S. had monitored calls involving Merkel and her top aides for years. But no credible evidence has emerged to support those claims, and the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee said last week that they have seen nothing that supports the allegation.
Graham says he's also waiting to hear from Comey whether a warrant was issued that would have allowed the Obama administration to tap Mr. Trump's phones during the campaign.
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".
"I do think it's important that we look at the broader context here", Arkansas Sen.
For this reason, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) just opened the door to Democrats taking back the House in 2018.
Comey may need to be most limited in his comments on collusion because of the nature of ongoing investigations, Schiff said.
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.
