ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The White House says it welcomes any fact-finding by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham over President Trump's business deals, saying the president has no connections to Russia. "He has no business in Russia; he has no connections to Russia," White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters on Tuesday. "So he welcomes that." Spicer added that Trump had directed a law firm to send Graham a certified letter stating as much.

Clapper said he could not comment because the issue could be a subject of an ongoing investigation.
