Also Friday, the Senate intelligence committee announced a March 30 hearing in connection to its investigation into Russian activities during last year's presidential election.
After months of running speculation that President Donald Trump and his administration colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign, FBI Director James Comey announced March 20 that the bureau is investigating possible ties between Trump and Russian Federation.
The House is expected to vote Thursday on repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. "There's still a lot of information that needs to be discussed", White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said.
"In another tweet, the White House quoted Comey saying that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper was "'right' to say no evidence of collusion between Russian Federation and Trump Campaign".
"I'd rather not be talking about this at all", Comey said.
Clinton warns Trump's proposed budget cuts would endanger US security
During her 20 minute speech , Clinton mainly spoke about the role of women in global politics and peace-building efforts. It may not come as a surprise that few of them follow the path the Trump administration has chosen to take.
On Monday, FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress to say that the FBI was investigating the possibility that associates of Donald Trump may have colluded with Russians in order to coordinate the release of information on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.
The revelation came amid Trump's almost three-week wiretapping crusade, in which he accused the Obama administration of possibly coordinating with domestic and global entities to surveil Trump and his associates during the campaign.
And Rep. Nunes pressed Director Comey to investigate if Democrats crossed the line. And remember this - this is also supposedly a counter-intelligence investigation, which that means it is basically national security matters. The FBI rarely acknowledges publicly the existence of an ongoing investigation except, in Mr Comey's words, in "unusual circumstances". I mean what's that tell us about how likely they are to find about Putin or collusion? They include the president's unsubstantiated claim that former President Barack Obama wiretapped his phones in Trump Tower during the campaign. And why does the subject of Russian Federation so reliably send Trump into a Twitter rage?
The NSA Director Mike Rogers said there is no basis for the claim the Obama Administration instructed British intelligence to spy on the Trump team.
