Highlights: The Trump presidency on March 20 at 11:35 AM EDT

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Susan Collins of ME also said Sunday they had seen no evidence that the Obama administration had placed Trump under surveillance at Trump Tower, the Manhattan high-rise that houses Trump's residence, business office and campaign office.

It is the strongest assertion yet from Republican Devin Nunes, whose House Intelligence Committee is holding a public session on Monday to hear evidence on whether Russian Federation tried to help the Trump election campaign. "He asked for an investigation by the House and Senate Intelligence Committees".

"If you just rely on one side of the ledger, the Republican side, where you got 50 votes that will give you trouble nearly with any bill you try - and the Senate will not accept a lot of this - I think the need right now is to find. a governing coalition that could make these things realistic".

"We're going to highlight the fact that we know the Russians were trying to get involved in our campaign, like they have for many decades", Mr Nunes said. "Is there any shadow of a doubt, is there any possibility, any way, Obama could have tapped Trump Tower in any way?"

FBI Director James Comey and Mike Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, are due to testify.

"For the first time the American people, and all the political parties now, are paying attention to the threat that Russian Federation poses", Mr Nunes said.

But, congressional Republicans avidly supporting Trump as well as his agenda also could face the 2018 political heat elections as they were trying to handle the claims that are clearly dismissed by intelligence officials and Obama.

Nunes and Schiff were among a number of lawmakers who said on Sunday's news shows they had seen no evidence that the Obama administration ordered wiretaps on Trump during the campaign.

For Panetta, Trump's distractions are in no way benign.

Comey acknowledged on Monday the existence of a counterintelligence investigation into the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 election, and said that probe extends to the nature of any links between Trump campaign associates and the Russian government.
