Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, on Thursday accused Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., of lying when he said President Donald Trump was under investigation by the FBI for collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential election, The Daily Caller reports.

"Mr. (James) Comey didn’t just tell the President, Senator Feinstein and me that the president was not under investigation," Grassley said on the Senate Floor. "He had also told the gang of eight. Of course, the gang of eight includes Senate Minority Leader Senator Schumer. But even after Mr. Comey told the gang of eight that the president was not under investigation, the minority leader told the media that the president was under investigation and of course that further help feed media storm– Hysteria."

The "gang of eight" includes the four high-ranking lawmakers in each party who get the most thorough intelligence briefing.

Grassley said Comey, the former FBI director, told him, Feinstein and six other Senators in March that the president was not under investigation. But Schumer continued to tell the media the opposite.

"That helped feed the media hysteria," said Grassley. "The Minority Leader even tried to say that the Senate shouldn’t vote on the Supreme Court nomination because the president was under investigation. And the whole time, he knew it wasn’t true."
