White House Press Secretary issues statement regarding Russia's involvement in election

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WWBT) -

The White House Press Secretary issued a statement Sunday morning regarding Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

Reports concerning potentially politically motivated investigations immediately ahead of the 2016 election are very troubling. 

President Donald J. Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016. 

Neither the White House nor the President will comment further until such oversight is conducted.
