Trump Pressed Top Senate Republicans To ‘Move On’ And End Russia Investigation: Report




President Trump pressed several top Senate Republicans, including committee chairmen Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), to “move on” and end the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to a new report.

Trump’s requests happened over the summer just as special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation expanded and intensified.

A White House spokesman told the Times that Trump has “at no point…attempted to apply undue influence on committee members.”

The Hill added:

Trump has repeatedly denied allegations of collusion between his campaign and Russia and has accused Democrats of using the investigation as an excuse for losing the 2016 election.
