Senator Dianne Feinstein, a top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Wednesday she’s not yet seen evidence that would prove collusion between the President and the Russian government.
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer called that a “pretty precise answer.”
Check it out (via Daily Caller):
Feinstein’s directness is in contrast to other Democrats who have implied that there is evidence of collusion between the Trump team and the Kremlin. California Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, has said he has seen “more than circumstantial” evidence showing coordination. Last month, California Rep. Eric Swalwell, another House committee member, said “there is evidence of collusion.”
Both intelligence committees as well as the FBI are investigating Russia’s actions prior to the election, including whether Trump advisers coordinated with the Kremlin.
The Senate Intelligence Committee was briefed by the CIA on Tuesday on updates regarding the alleged collusion.
Members of the Senate also had the opportunity to further question FBI Director James Comey on potential collusion during a routine hearing as well.
Here’s the clip of Feinstein’s comments:
