Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., said Wednesday the committee has had "no hard evidence" of collusion, prompting a tweet from President Donald Trump.
However, the investigation is not over, and information could still turn up showing evidence that collusion occurred, Burr also told Fox News' "America's Newsroom."
"'I can say, as it relates to the Senate Intelligence Committee Investigation, that we have no hard evidence of collusion,'" Trump tweeted, shortly after the North Carolina Republican's interview.
But, Burr also said, the committee still could "find something that we don't have today."
"Maybe we will find something in the next several interviews that are evidence of collusion," Burr said. "I don't think so with what we've seen, but clearly we were asked to look at Russian meddling."
The senator said he still hopes to conclude the investigation by the end of the year.
"It will take probably three to six months to write the final report," Burr said. "We've been charged with making a determination as to what happened and conveying that with facts to the American people to let them make their minds up. I still intend to do that."
He also pointed out he could not tell yet what the committee's conclusion will be in the end.
The Trump administration has once again threatened sanctions, and said it would not allow Russia to meddle in U.S. elections, Burr said, as "the whole of government has taken a tough stand on Russia."
