"I think we still need to figure out what the president was talking about", Cornyn said on CNN's "New Day".

"I never believed it from the beginning", he said.

He promised to try to "get to the bottom of" whether Russians tried to help the Trump campaign and "whether Trump associates or anyone else was involved".

"Not that I've seen and not that I'm aware of", he replied, adding that the committee would take the claims seriously nonetheless, reviewing documents and taking testimony from witnesses to see if there was any such evidence.

The Committee's Chairman and Republican Representative David Nunes said they had "fully complied" with the White House request but did not say what evidence they had turned over.

Last week, the House Intelligence Committee received information from the Justice Department related to the wiretapping claims.

Mr Flynn was sacked by the president last month after his assurances that he had not talked to Russian officials were proved to be false.

Farhad Moshiri moves to reassure Everton fans about Romelu Lukaku's future
Recently Lukaku hinted that he needs Champions League football to be taken seriously as a world-class striker. Evertonians are now waiting for the news that will prove him right. "No one should worry, he's our player".

"I'm not sure exactly how the president is using the language, but, literally, the language can not be true", Cornyn said.

He said he had not seen any evidence to back up the allegations, but would "investigate each and every one of these things".

On Monday, Nunes and Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, will lead a rare open hearing on the investigation into Russian election meddling where the directors of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and National Security Agency are expected to testify.

"Problem is, there's no evidence that anything happened at the Trump Tower". The British intelligence agency flatly denied the claim it happened.

While disagreeing with Trump's wiretap assertions, Nunes agreed with concerns that the Republican president has expressed about alleged leaks in the probe.

Earlier this month, Trump accused Obama of wiretapping him in Trump Tower prior to the November election.

"President Trump owes the American people and President Obama more than just an explanation, but an apology", Schumer said.
