Republican lawmakers are clashing with the Trump administration over investigations concerning Russia.
According to The Washington Post, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, an Iowa Republican, butted heads with the Justice Department Wednesday.
"It doesn't matter whether you have a Republican or Democrat president, every time they come up here for their nomination hearing... I ask them, 'Are you going to answer phone calls and our letters, and are you going to give us the documents we want?' And every time we get a real positive 'yes!' And then they end up being liars!" Grassley told the Post.
"It's not if they're treating us differently than another committee. It's if they're responding at all."
Grassley said he and other Republicans — Democrats too — are growing frustrated with Trump administration officials regarding the administration's alleged ties to Russia and Trump's assertion that Trump Tower was wiretapped during the campaign.
No concrete evidence has surfaced that shows Trump had — and has — illegal ties to Russia.
A recent report suggested, however, that the government sought FISA warrants last year that may have been for Trump and/or his people.
Grassley and other senators met with FBI Director James Comey about Russia claims on Wednesday.
