Former CIA Director John Brennan said Tuesday during a congressional hearing that contacts and interactions between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and Russian officials do not constitute evidence of collusion.
Brennan’s testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence came on the heels of many Democratic lawmakers calling for President Trump’s impeachment because of their belief that Trump colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 campaign. Several other Democrats, including Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.), have said there is so far no evidence of collusion.
Rep. Michael Turner (R., Ohio) asked Brennan to clarify his earlier testimony that contacts and interactions alone do not constitute evidence of collusion.
