Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., the senior Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said that testimony from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray failed to provide new information about special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
"We didn’t learn anything we didn’t already know, except perhaps how really bad the Republicans are, how they’re trying to intimidate and defame the special prosecutor and pressure the investigation," Nadler said Friday on CNN’s "New Day."
"For Trey Gowdy, who conducted the Benghazi investigation for close to four years, to say finish this investigation already… this investigation has been going on for less than a year… call it a year and a half. In a year and a half investigation they have gotten 20 indictments, five guilty pleas, and that’s a lot for a year and a half," said Nadler, referring to a Gowdy comment Thursday.
Gowdy. R-S.C., on Thursday referred to the Russia probe, saying the Justice Department should "finish it the hell up because this country is being torn apart," Fox News reported.
"There’s no reason to assume they’re not going as fast as reasonable," Nadler said during the "New Day" interview.
Rep. Nadler also weighed in Wednesday, slamming a Republican resolution for the Justice Department to provide documents regarding its investigation.
"What is really going on here is a bad-faith effort by the majority to interfere in an ongoing investigation," Nadler said Wednesday.
