U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) released a statement Friday responding to President Donald Trump’s criticism of the FBI and Department of Justice.
“The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s,” the statement said. “The American people deserve to know all of the facts surrounding Russia’s ongoing efforts to subvert our democracy, which is why Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation must proceed unimpeded.”
The defense of the FBI and Department of Justice is a response to the president’s Twitter statements that called out the two agencies for partisan leadership.
“If we continue to undermine our own rule of law, we are doing Putin’s job for him,” McCain responded.
