Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr threw more cold water on Robert Mueller’s year-long investigation into Russian collusion Wednesday, saying his panel has found “no hard evidence” of the Trump campaign coordinating with the Kremlin.
Sen. Burr was speaking with Fox News when he was pressed on whether his committee has seen intelligence relating to Russian election meddling and President Trump.

“I can say as it relates to the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation that we have no hard evidence of collusion. Now, we’re not over. That leaves the opportunity that we might find something that we don’t have today,” said Burr.
“We found a lot of things we didn’t anticipate that we would find. We’ve had to chase a lot of threads that needed to be chased,” he added.
