Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Thursday that "nothing" should interfere with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia after two House conservatives called for the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Schumer told reporters that Sessions should not resign his post, and said that Mueller's ongoing investigation should not be disrupted in any way, even though he voted against Sessions' nomination last year.
"I voted against Jeff Sessions and said he never should be there in the first place given his record on civil rights, on immigration, on so many other issues," Schumer said.
"My view now is very simple — nothing, nothing, nothing should ever interfere with the Mueller investigation," Schumer declared. "He must be able to pursue that to wherever that leads."
Earlier Thursday, Reps. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, called for Sessions to resign due to leaks out of the Justice Department.
