"It's clear that nothing has changed", Spicer also commented on Comey's first public confirmation that the Trump campaign has been under FBI investigation since July, stressing that there is no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the election.
The House committee is set to hold a second hearing on March 28, with former spy chiefs and administration officials scheduled to appear.
THE FACTS: Trump leaves out an important nuance in this tweet about the former director of national intelligence, James Clapper. When no evidence was provided, the idea was floated that Obama actually had the British intelligence community do the wiretapping, which Rogers confirmed to be untrue today. The information is raising the suspicions of FBI counterintelligence investigators that the coordination may have taken place, though officials cautioned that the information was not conclusive and that the investigation is ongoing.
Besides hacking into DNC and Clinton campaign systems to steal files and emails, the Russians also focused on disinformation campaign involving publication of "fake news" articles released through multiple online outlets linked with Russia. During the hearing, Trump, using the official White House account, tweeted: "The [National Security Agency] and Federal Bureau of Investigation tell Congress that Russian Federation did not influence electoral process".
The suggestion as to Comey's motives came in a column, which will run in Wednesday's paper, that hammered Trump for making the unsupported claim. Is there fire? Will the Russia-Trump investigations uncover anything?

Russia's intervention in last year's presidential campaign is no longer in doubt.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said there was no evidence of any collusion between Russian officials and Trump campaign personnel.
Earlier this month, President Trump accused his predecessor of having Trump Tower under surveillance during the 2016 election campaign, describing the affair as "Nixon/Watergate" and "McCarthyism".
He also noted that while the Russian government wanted to hurt Clinton's campaign and help Trump's, intelligence agencies made no judgment on whether the efforts have concretely influenced the outcome.
