Rep. Elijah Cummings: WH Involvement in Russia Probe 'Highly Unusual'

The amount of involvement the White House has in the congressional investigation into the possible ties between Russia and the president's campaign is "highly unusual," according to Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings.

"Let the investigators do their jobs, let it go," Cummings said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Tuesday.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter after reports emerged that former national security adviser Susan Rice requested that certain Trump campaign officials be "unmasked" after being caught on U.S. surveillance of Russian targets.

"I practiced law for over 30 years, and I've never seen anything like this," Cummings said of Trump's tweets and the reports that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes met with White House sources on the matter.

Cummings told the president during a meeting last month, "'You cannot lead a country where 67 percent of the people are fearing you. That's horrible.' I said, 'Mr. President … most of the people tell me that they are fearful of you and they don't like where we're going.'"

Cummings also dubbed Trump's main adviser Steve Bannon "a white supremacist-type," and said Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "would be very disappointed" that he's "sitting in the White House — and I'm paying his salary."
