FBI director James Comey has confirmed an investigation is under way into possible links between Russia and associates of United States president Donald Trump, as part of a wider probe into Russian interference in the presidential election.

First, what's real: Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey confirmed that his agency is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether associates of Trump were in contact with the Russian government.

"The extraordinary moment came shortly after Comey had confirmed to the House Intelligence Committee that there is indeed an ongoing counterintelligence investigation of Russian interference in the election of Donald Trump as president and "whether there was any coordination" between the Trump campaign and the Russian effort".

Like he said publicly last week, Nunes said there was no wiretap at Trump Tower in NY, as the president asserted in a series of tweets earlier in the month.

Comey is also expected to discuss Trump's accusation, which he has failed to back up with any evidence, that he was wiretapped by former President Barack Obama's administration.

"I asked you whether the intelligence community had undertaken any sort of study to determine whether Russian Federation interference had any influence on the electoral process and I think you told me the answer was no", Himes said, referring to questions earlier in Monday's hearing. Comey also confirmed that the FBI is investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, and had been doing so during last year's election.

Since then, Mr Trump has faced allegations that his campaign team had links to Russian officials.

The hearing's featured witnesses included Comey and Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency.

The chairman and the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee have previously said no evidence exists substantiating Trump's allegations. "It is still ongoing", Spicer told reporters, saying "no" the President would not withdraw his the claims in his tweet asserting that former President Obama ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower. Also of interest to the committee are any connections between Russian Federation and associates of President Donald Trump and whether any surveillance was conducted for political reasons.

"Following this testimony, it is clear that nothing has changed", Spicer said.

Trump first announced the unsubstantiated claim in several misspelled tweets on March 4.

Trump has not recanted the controversial claims, which the White House has said refer to the Obama administration's surveillance activities more broadly.

He added that this probe will "include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed".

". there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia", Trump tweeted at 6:35 Monday morning. He was accused by Democrats of lying under oath when he testified at a January confirmation hearing that he had "no communications with the Russians" before it emerged that he had met Moscow's ambassador to the US Sergei Kislyak during the campaign.

"We know there was not a physical wiretap of Trump Tower".

The Senate Intelligence Committee has scheduled a similar hearing for later in the month.

Trump also suggested, without evidence, that Clinton's campaign was in contact with Russian Federation and had possibly thwarted a federal investigation.
