The deputy attorney general told the House in a classified briefing that former FBI Director James Comey did not ask for more resources for the Russia investigation.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said to reporters outside a classified briefing on Friday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein denied former FBI Director James Comey requested more resources for the investigation into Russian interference in 2016.
Following the dismissal of Comey, a narrative developed that the FBI director had asked for more funding for the investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to the Russian government. The implication was that President Trump fired Comey to slow the investigation.
“[Rosenstein] has no evidence that Comey asked for any further resources, and all the resources were there,” McCarthy told reporters.
Rosenstein briefed the House on the status of the Russia investigation on Friday.
