He said that I had a telephone conversation about this with the Director of the CIA Mike Pompeo and Chairman of the Committee, Richard Burr, “to Express serious concerns about how this affects the independence of the investigation and the bipartisan commitment to go on the facts, but also to emphasize that I will not tolerate any actions that undermine (the investigation – Ed.) through political intervention.”
Warner noted that he began consultations with the members of the Committee, the purpose of which is to “ensure that the American people will get a thorough and unbiased investigation it deserves and which will be free from interference by the White house.”
