Reuters: House intelligence panel chair cancels public session on Russia

24 March 2017 | 20:24 | FOCUS News Agency
Washington D.C. The head of the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee canceled a planned public hearing in its probe of allegations of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election, saying the panel needed to hear from directors of the FBI and the National Security Agency in a closed session instead, Reuters reported.
The announcement on Friday by Republican Representative Devin Nunes was immediately criticized by the top Democrat on the panel, Adam Schiff, who said the cancellation was a serious mistake.
"The committee seeks additional information ... that can only be addressed in closed session," Nunes told reporters.
He said the committee hoped to have a closed session on Tuesday with FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Admiral Michael Rogers.
“That was not in our view in the public interest and we resisted that,” Schiff told reporters. “We strongly objected to the cancellation of this hearing.”

Washington D.C. The chairman of a US congressional committee on intelligence said Sunday that he has seen "no evidence" that President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russia during the runup to the 2016 election, reports AFP.

Based on "everything I have up to this morning -- no evidence of collusion," said US Representative Devin Nunes, head of the House Intelligence Committee, speaking to the Fox News Sunday television program.

He made his remarks one day before FBI director James Comey is due to appear before his panel, facing lawmakers seeking answers about Trump's potential Russia ties and the president's extraordinary accusation of wiretapping by his predecessor.
