House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) said Sunday that there is “no evidence of collusion” between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.

“Have you seen any evidence of any collusion between what I’ll call Trump world — associates, campaign officials — Trump world and the Russians to swing the 2016 presidential election?” Chris Wallace asked Nunes on “Fox News Sunday.”

“I’ll give you a very simple answer. No,” Nunes said.

“No evidence of any collusion?” Wallace pressed.

“No evidence,” Nunes replied.

“And this is after getting this information from the FBI?” Wallace asked.

“Up to speed on everything I have up to this morning,” Nunes said. “There is no evidence of collusion.”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, said on Sunday that he doesn’t want to “prejudge” the committee’s conclusions.

“I would characterize it this way, at the outset of the investigation,” Schiff said. “There is circumstantial evidence of collusion. There is direct evidence, I think, of deception.”
