All eyes in the White House were on Capitol Hill Monday, where a pair of hearings -- one into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and another that kicked off the process to confirm Trump Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch -- loomed large over Trump's presidency.
The White House, however, tried to distance the Trump campaign from some of the campaign advisers in question and argued that the investigation into 2016 wiretapping and surveillance wasn't finished.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer also stood behind a series of comments from Obama administration officials who said they saw no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
On Monday in Louisville, Trump is expected to make his first comments on the momentous day.
Trump -- via his personal Twitter account -- slammed any talk of connections between his 2016 campaign and Russia before Monday's hearing.
"James Clapper and others stated that there is no evidence Potus colluded with Russia. This story is FAKE NEWS and everyone knows it!" Trump wrote, referring to the director of national intelligence under President Barack Obama. He later added, "The Democrats made up and pushed the Russian story as an excuse for running a terrible campaign. Big advantage in Electoral College & lost!"
"We're happy to have him in Kentucky. He's very popular," Paul told CNN last week of Trump. "I'm with the President on the repeal part. We're still apart somewhat on replacement."
