President Donald Trump’s administration has faced numerous hurdles during its first two months in office, the biggest being its alleged ties to Russia. A Hillary Clinton supporter and former acting CIA director, however, said Wednesday that there wasn’t enough evidence to support claims that Trump’s aides colluded with Russia.

“On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all,” Michael Morell said at an event sponsored by the intelligence website Cipher Brief, NBC News reported. “There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it.”

According to reports, Morell was one of Democratic presidential candidate Clinton’s top choices for CIA head if she won the 2016 elections. However, the former deputy CIA director, who had called Trump an “unwitting agent of the Russian Federation” in the past, differed from a number of other Clinton supporters on Trump’s alleged links to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s government.

Trump’s administration has been in the limelight after former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned after it was revealed that he did not fully disclose his interactions with a Russia ambassador. Soon after that, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any investigations into the Trump campaign and its alleged contact with Russia after it emerged that he did not disclose that he met twice with the Russian ambassador last year.

Another object of scrutiny was a dossier compiled by former British intelligence official Christopher Steele, which claimed that Russia had dirt on the president, which it could use as leverage. Morell, however, disputed the legitimacy of the dossier, raising questions over how the material was collected.

“Unless you know the sources, and unless you know how a particular source acquired a particular piece of information, you can't judge the information — you just can’t,” Morell said, adding that the documents don’t “take you anywhere, I don’t think."

But Morell did raise the issue of Putin not suffering any consequence for his alleged interference in the U.S. election, saying, “This has never happened before in American history on this scale, never not even close. And Putin did not pay any price for this — nothing, zero.”
