Sebastian Gorka: I trust Trump on Russia probe

President Trump's deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka has said "there is nothing there" as investigations continue into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

In May this year the former FBI director Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel to investigate Russian interference in last year’s election. Separate investigations are also being carried out by the Senate and House of Representatives.

The Kremlin has denied any interference and President Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion with Russia.

Mr Gorka told Hardtalk's Stephen Sackur: "I know what the President of the United States told me and that is enough for me because I trust that man."

The interview was recorded on Monday 31 July 2017.
