President Trump was correct when he said he wasn’t personally under investigation in the FBI’s Russia election meddling probe, two key senators said Thursday, though both of them said the government owes the public a better explanation of what’s going on.
Mr. Trump in his letter firing Director James B. Comey this week made a point of saying the top lawman had assured him three separate times that he wasn’t under investigation — countering some of the more overheated speculation about the sprawling investigation.
Mr. Trump’s veracity in make that assertion has been questioned, but two top senators — Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein — briefed last week by Mr. Comey on the broad scope of his investigation said he gave them no indication the president is a target.
“Sen. Feinstein and I heard nothing that contradicted the president’s statement,” Mr. Grassley said.
Mrs. Feinstein agreed with that.
Neither senator would reveal who the targets of the FBI investigation are, but Mr. Grassley said the bureau should come forward and make clear how far its probe goes.
I think President Trump knows he's in the clear, and so he's quite bold about it!
If they had something on Trump, we'd know it by now.
I agree. They are driving this narrative to delegitimize the presidency, and applying the old 'if you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it.'
