Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is slamming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for accusing his committee of not fully investigating the Russia probe.
Grassley said the New York Democrat was “really misinformed” after Schumer called the Judiciary Committee’s investigation a “white wash” on Wednesday.
He also disputed Schumer’s claim the probe was meant to allow the president’s legal team to interfere with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Senator Grassley went on to say the claim of a secret plan to help one side or the other is absurd.
The chairman said his committee investigated the Russia probe to the fullest extent to provide transparency for the American people.
