Senator Cotton on Russia investigation: “We’re going to follow the facts”

Arkansas senator Tom Cotton said in an interview on “Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace” that the Senate Intelligence Committee will do a thorough investigation on all aspects of the Russian involvement in the presidential election race.

Cotton stated that the investigation would “review allegations of any kind of improper contacts between Russian officials and campaign officials or other American citizens.”

Senator Cotton also spoke on President Trump’s allegations and tweets about former President Obama wiretapping Trump Tower before the presidential election, saying, “And I’m sure that we’ll be reviewing any allegations such as this.”

When asked during the interview if he saw any proof of the allegation by President Trump, Cotton said, “I’ve seen no evidence of the allegations we’ve seen in the media. That doesn’t mean that none of these things happened. It simply means I haven’t seen that yet. … I would not want to speculate about media reports based on anonymous sources.”

Senator Cotton stated:

“We’ve already begun an inquiry on the intelligence committee into Russia’s efforts to undermine confidence in our political system last year and our interests all around the world. That inquiry is going to be thorough, and we’re going to follow the facts wherever they lead us. And I’m sure that this matter will be a part of that inquiry.”
