Lawmakers criticize Trump’s tweets about Russia investigation
WASHINGTON — Democrats and Republicans alike decried President Trump’s tweet about the Russia investigation on Capitol Hill Friday.
“It certainly sounds like the president is adding Rod Rosenstein to the enemy’s list along with Bob Mueller and James Comey and an ever increasing number of people,” Sen. Adam Schiff, a Democrat from California, said.
Top Democrats warned Mr. Trump against a power grab on Friday.
“What really concerns me that the president is attacking his own deputy attorney general who appointed the special counsel. I think it would be an absolute disaster if the president were to move forward and fire the special counsel,” Sen. Mark Warner, a Democrat from Virginia, said.
