Priebus: Trump Personnel 'Absolutely' Did Not Collude with Russia During Campaign
White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was a guest on "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace to discuss a variety of topics from the early days of Donald Trump's presidency.
Of note, Priebus said there was no collusion between anyone from Trump's campaign and Russia prior to the election, contrary to a report last week in The New York Times.
"I can assure you -- and I've been approved to say this -- that the top levels of the intelligence community have assured me that that story is not only inaccurate but it's grossly overstated and it was wrong," Priebus said.
Wallace followed up immediately, asking Priebus for confirmation of his statement.
"They have made it very clear that that story in The New York Times is complete garbage," Priebus said.
Wallace pressed Priebus for his sources, but Priebus refused since he said he was not given permission to name names.
"When I say top-level people, I mean top-level people," he said.
From there, the interview continued to touch on Trump's relationship with the media, the resignation of Michael Flynn as national security adviser and who will be replacing Flynn.
