The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee says he doesn't think the FBI investigation into alleged links between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia is the reason Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.
North Carolina Republican Sen. Richard Burr adds that, "To date, there has been no evidence of collusion."
But Burr also says Trump's tweet Friday about Comey was "inappropriate."
On Friday morning, Trump wrote on Twitter that Comey "better hope that there are no 'tapes' of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"
Burr spoke to reporters Friday before touring a bus plant in his home state.
