(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) -- National security adviser Robert O'Brien disputed reports on intelligence officials warning House lawmakers of Russia's attempts to interfere in the 2020 presidential election to the benefit of President Trump.
Details from a secret briefing given to the House Intelligence Committee leaked this week alleging that legislators were told that "Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump reelected." O'Brien, however, said that he hasn't seen any intelligence reports corroborating the claim during a Saturday interview with ABC News's George Stephanopoulos.

"I haven't seen any intelligence that Russia is doing anything to attempt to get President Trump reelected," O'Brien said, calling the rumor a "nonstory."
