New York GOP Rep. Pete King said Monday he has seen no evidence showing Russians colluded with anyone in President Donald Trump's campaign staff, but if there was, he wants to know about it.

"I would like [FBI] Director [James] Comey to say yes or no, if he can at this stage," King told MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle just before the House Intelligence Committee hearings began.

FBI Director James Comey on Monday, while testifying during a House Intelligence Committee hearing, gave neither a yes or no answer, however. Instead, he told the committee that his agency is actively investigating the Russian government's interference in the 2016 presidential election — and that probe includes whether Trump's campaign staff was involved with the Kremlin plot.

"To me, [the question is] what was the extent of Russian interference in the election," said King. "Was there collusion, whatsoever, with anyone in the Trump campaign and the Russians. It's important."

King said he also wants more information about classified information leaked from the White House, as this is "very, very top secret information . . . who did it and who is behind it?"

If there continues to be no evidence of collusion, then it's time to end the discussion, said King.

Meanwhile, he admitted there will "always" be circumstantial evidence, but the trick is to see if it turns out to be anything.

"If there's real evidence, if you can look into the circumstantial evidence and see real evidence, that's a different story," said King. "As far as I know, there is no evidence of collusion."
