Spicer: no collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Monday that FBI Director James Comey’s appearance on Capitol Hill backed up assertions that there was no collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.

“Following this testimony it’s clear that nothing has changed. Senior Obama intelligence officials have gone on record to confirm that there is no evidence of a Trump-Russia collusion. The Obama CIA director said so. Obama’s director of national intelligence said so and we take them at their word,” said Spicer.  

“It’s also important to note that both Directors Comey and Rogers told the committee that they have no evidence that votes were changed in the swing states the president had won,” he added.

FBI Director James Comey confirmed on March 20 that the FBI is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

“Investigating it and having proof are two different things,” said Spicer.

“There is this media narrative that continues to talk about collusion that exists and yet every person that’s been briefed, Nunes, Tom Cotton, Chris Coons, Democrat of Delaware, Clapper, the Obama appointee have all said that nothing that they’ve seen make them believe that there is any collusion and I think there’s a difference between talking about an investigation into the 2016 election, which we all know, and any evidence of collusion. There is no evidence, according to the people, that have been briefed, of any collusion or activity that leads them to believe that that exists. I think that is an important point that gets overlooked over and over and over again.”
