The panel's top Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff of California, said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that a classified dossier from the Justice Department delivered on Friday showed "no evidence to support the president's claim that he was wiretapped by his predecessor" so "I hope we can put an end to this wild goose chase, because what the president said was patently false".

Donald Trump had made several explosive claims on Twitter earlier this month in which he accused then president Barack Obama of wiretapping his phones last October likening it to the Watergate scandal. There is no way for me to give you a timetable.

Both top USA lawmakers and British officials have rejected Trump's wiretapping claims.

He also disputed allegations that British intelligence services were involved in the wiretapping. The first public hearing in a congressional investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election opens with a hearing featuring FBI Director James Comey and the head of the National Security Agency. A new Reuters investigation reveals dozens of Russian elites have invested almost $100 million in seven Trump-branded luxury buildings in Florida.

Comey refused to comment when asked by Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.) if the investigation had uncovered evidence of collision between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation.

The U.S. House of Representatives Rules Committee announces it will hold a final hearing on the Republican healthcare bill on Wednesday, a day before lawmakers are expected to vote on the legislation.

Mr Trump tweeted: "The real story that Congress, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and others should be looking into is the leaking of Classified information. Must find leaker now!"

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

He said the FBI started investigating the matter in July and that its work was still in the early stages.

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

The Senate Intelligence Committee has scheduled a similar hearing for later in the month. The FBI is investigating vote interference, the Russian "hacking" of the election, and the possible coordination with the Trump camp.

His appearances on Capitol Hill since then have occurred in classified settings, and he has made no public statements connected to the Trump campaign or Russian Federation.

He said the panel was investigating whether other names were leaked.
