House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Tuesday said that he did not learn anything “new” from FBI Director James Comey’s testimony about Russian interference in the U.S. election. He also reiterated that he has not seen any evidence indicating that President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russian government officials.

“I don’t think we learned anything new yesterday with Comey’s testimony,” Ryan said at a press briefing.

He noted that the House Intelligence Committee was still investigating Russia’s attempts to influence the 2016 election, but he said that he has not seen evidence yet linking the Trump campaign to Russia.

“It is very clear that we’ve seen no evidence and have been presented with no evidence that Donald Trump or his staff were involved in this with the Russians,” he said.
