Van Hollen on Russia Probe: ‘What Is the White House Afraid Of?’

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen.Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) said the White House needed to allow FBI special counsel Robert Mueller to complete his federal investigation into Russian election meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Van Hollen said, “I think Republicans should end their concerted effort to undermine the credibility of the Mueller investigation. You’ve got somebody who by all accounts who is an independent person, somebody who’s got lots of integrity and you see a concerted effort out of the White House to undermine the investigation. I really hope our Republican colleagues will not join in subverting that process and trying to end this investigation.”

He added, “The question is what are they afraid of? What is the White House afraid of? Let’s let them finish the job and get the facts.”
