The White House, responding to hearings on Capitol Hill about contacts between officials in Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia, said on Tuesday there was no evidence of collusion between Trump's team and Moscow.

Testifying before a House panel, former CIA director John Brennan said he was aware of contacts between Russian officials and people involved in the Trump campaign and grew concerned that Moscow had sought to lure Americans down "a treasonous path."

Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, was questioned in separate testimony before a Senate panel over a report in the Washington Post that Trump asked Coats to help him knock down the notion there was evidence of collusion.

Coats sidestepped the question but said he has made clear to Trump's administration that "any political shaping" of intelligence would be inappropriate.
