Washington - The chairperson of the House intelligence committee says there is no physical wiretap on Trump Tower, but it's possible that "other surveillance activities" were used against President Donald Trump and his associates.

Devin Nunes was speaking at the opening of the committee's first public hearing on Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

He said the committee had seen no evidence to date that officials from any campaign conspired with Russian agents, but will continue to investigate that question.

He also said the committee would investigate who had been leaking classified information about investigations into Russia's interference.

Nunes says he hoped the committee's hearings will result in a "definitive report" on Russia's involvement in the presidential election.
