In the meantime, the Senate Intelligence Committee will continue our investigation into Russia's attempts to influence elections. A few hours after their meeting, the question became a moot point. That justification was viewed with skepticism by many until Trump said in an interview days later he fired Comey because of his continued probe into Russian interference and collusion in the 2016 campaign and would have fired him regardless of what the Department of Justice recommended.
