Former CIA Chief John Brennan was in the hot seat earlier today as Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) grilled him on whether or not there is any evidence of Trump/Russia collusion during the 2016 Presidential Campaign.
As The Daily Caller reports, Brennan was testifying before the House Intelligence Committee.
“Did you see evidence of collusion, coordination, conspiracy between Donald Trump and Russian state actors?” asked Gowdy quite pointedly.
Brennan’s reply came, “I saw information and intelligence that was worthy of investigation by the bureau to determine whether such operation and collusion was taking place.”
“That doesn’t help us a lot,” shot back Gowdy. “What was the nature of the information?”
“It’s classified and I’m happy to talk about it in the classified session,” Brennan replied.
At this, Gowdy asked if that information “would have been directly between the candidate and Russian state actors.”
“That’s not what I said,” replied Brennan. “I’m not going to talk about any individuals.”
Later on in their exchange, Gowdy stated, “I asked you about collusion, and conspiracy, and you used the word ‘contact.’ Contact should be benign or not benign. So was it contact you saw – what was the nature of what you saw?”
“I saw interaction,” Brennan said before eventually admitting, “I don’t know. I don’t have sufficient information to make determination whether or not there was cooperation or complicity or collusion.”
