Mary Bruce has those details for us. Reporter: Good morning. Despite his repeated claims he is not under investigation, the president is now expected to hire a private attorney to represent him in the special counsel's investigation as the former CIA director says definetively he knew during the campaign there were interactions between the two and told the Russians to back off. It should be clear to everyone that Russia brazenly interfe interfered. Reporter: Blunt talk on capitol hill Tuesday. Former CIA director John Brennan. For the first time Brennan reviling that during the presidential campaign, I confronted his Russian counterpart about their meddling in the U.S. Election. I told that if Russia had such a campaign underway it will be certain to backfire. Reporter: Brennan making a bold statement saying he was so concerned aboutential ties between the trump team and the Russians, he felt the FBI should investigate. It raised questions in my mind again whether or not the Russians were able to gain the cooperation of those individuals. Reporter: He stopped short of calling it collusion and the white house took notice. In a statement the administration stressing that despite a year of investigation there is still no evidence of any russia/trump campaign collusion but that is still under investigation and now "The Washington post" reports president trump asked two of his top intelligence officials to publicly deny any coordination between his campaign and the Russians. We are in a phase where there is a new revelation every two or three days. Reporter: One of those officials, the director of national intelligence, would neither confirm nor deny. It's not appropriate for me to comment publicly on any of that. Reporter: Now, in response, the white house continues to point out that so far no one has presented any evidence of collusion and they still insist that the real story here are the leaks coming from the white house. George.
