Schumer Dodges On Whether The FBI Has Been Forthcoming

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer dodged on whether he agrees with Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) assertion that the FBI has not been forthcoming with information about contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during an interview on NBC’s Meet the Press.

Seemign to suggest he does not agree with Schiff’s assertion, Schumber told NBC’s Chuck Todd, “Well, let me just say this, the FBI is the premier investigative agency here in our government, and I believe that they will do their job and get to the bottom of this without political interference.”

Todd pressed Schumer on this point.

Schumer again dodged Todd’s question saying, “Well, there are certain kinds of information that can’t be given to Congress that, you know, or all of Congress that’s classified or that can’t be released and there’s a prosecutorial sort of way of doing things that you don’t comment on ongoing investigations.”

Again Todd pressed Schumer on the question and again he dodged saying he had given his answer on the matter.
