Acting FBI Director REFUTES Reports that Comey Asked for More Funding for Russia Investigation (VIDEO)
According to the Washington Post:
Last week, then-FBI Director James B. Comey requested more resources from the Justice Department for his bureau’s investigation into collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, according to two officials with knowledge of the discussion.
Comey, who was fired by President Trump on Tuesday, made the request in a meeting last week with Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, and later briefed the chair and Democratic ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Monday, the officials said.
The story was widely reported by the liberal mainstream media.
Too bad the story was complete garbage.
The Department of Justice refuted the report Wednesay saying Comey DID NOT ask Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein for more resourses for the Russian conspiracy probe.
On Thursday Acting FBI Director McCabe was asked if Comey had requested additional funding for the Russia investigation.
“I strongly believe the Russia investigation is adequately resourced.”
McCabe went on to say a request for funding for an individual investigation would be highly irregular.
