As predicted, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee came out swinging early today with several questions for acting FBI Director McCabe on whether the Trump administration was actively seeking to impede an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Unfortunately, McCabe’s answers will undoubtedly be somewhat disappointing for Democrats and CNN.
In an early exchange with Senator Marco Rubio, McCabe offered a very succinct answer on alleged White House interference with ongoing FBI investigations:
Rubio: “Has the dismissal of Mr. Comey in any way impeded, interrupted, stopped, or negatively impacted any of the work, any of the investigations or any ongoing projects at the Federal Bureau of Investigation?”
McCabe: “There has been no effort to impede our investigation to date.”
Moreover, McCabe went on to confirm that no agents have been removed from the Russia probe and that no one from the White House had contacted him about the ongoing investigation.
