Sen. Bernie Sanders said Wednesday that President Donald Trump was "impeding a significant investigation" when he fired FBI Director James Comey.

"It is a situation where the president is impeding a significant investigation to determine whether in fact it was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government," the Vermont independent and former Democratic presidential candidate told Wolf Blitzer on CNN.

"Russia has been interfering in election big time in countries all around the world," he added. "They interfered significantly in the U.S. election.

"They were in France trying to elect [Marine] Le Pen, a very right-wing individual.

"This investigation has to go forward in a nonpartisan way," he said.

When Blitzer cited the White House's reason for firing Comey, last July's news conference regarding the Hillary Clinton emails, Sanders responded: "Give me a break. That does not pass the laugh test.

"What we need to do now is go forward – and it is very important that this be done in a bipartisan way," he added. "We need special council, independently selected."
