Tim Kaine says he is troubled by the letter that his colleagues sent to President Trump but notes that he has not experienced any obstruction thus far.
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on Wednesday that it had not been his experience in dealing with the Trump administration that information he requested from federal agencies was being withheld.
Camerota asked Kaine about a letter that Senate Democrats had sent to President Trump alleging that federal agencies were withholding information requested by Senate Democrats. The information pertained to possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Specifically, Camerota asked Kaine whether he had experienced any obstruction from the Trump administration.
“Alisyn, that letter troubles me. I’m not part of the letter. That has not been my experience thus far in dealing with the administration,” Kaine told Camerota.
“Then again, I’m not on either of the committees that are doing the Russia investigation, Intel and Judiciary. I am on two committees that are sort of using the information, Armed Services and Foreign Relations,” Kaine said.
“I’m a consumer of the intel, but not on the investigative committees. I was not part of the letter. But of course, I’m troubled if my colleagues feel like they’re not getting their questions answered,” Kaine added.
