According to independent.co.uk, former FBI Director James Comey requested more resources for his investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 US election just days before President Donald Trump suddenly fired him.
Sources said that Mr. Comey had asked the Justice Department for a "significant increase" in resources to speed up the probe. The request was directed to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who later wrote the memo that has widely been regarded as providing the primary argument for Mr. Comey's sacking.
The top two senators on the Senate Intelligence Committee, before Mr. Comey's firing, reportedly asked him Monday to speed up the investigation into Russian election meddling. Mr. Comey acknowledged to Senator Richard Burr, a Republican, and Senator Mark Warner, a Democrat, that the investigation was moving slowly, according to CNN. With independent.co.uk
