Acting FBI director Andrew McCabe said Thursday that the bureau is continuing its work despite the sudden firing of James Comey, and that there have been no attempts yet to hinder the agency’s efforts.
The work of the men and women of the FBI continues despite changes in circumstance, any decisions, McCabe told lawmakers at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on worldwide threats. There has been no effort to impede our investigation to date.
Florida senator Marco Rubio had asked McCabe whether Comey’s termination Tuesday in any way impeded, interrupted, stopped, or negatively impacted the FBI’s work. That includes an ongoing probe into any potential links between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
