Sen. Joe Manchin said Tuesday that President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey was "not going to impede our investigation" into Russian meddling in last year's election.

"It is not going to impede our investigation in finding out where the Intel Committee basically is going to get its information," the West Virginia Democrat, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told Wolf Blitzer on CNN. "We still look forward to Mr. Comey coming before us the same as we do Sally Yates coming before us.

"That will not change the investigation.

"We will follow the intel — and the intel will take us to the facts, and that will lead us to the truth."

Trump fired Comey, 56, who was nominated in 2013 to a 10-year term by President Barack Obama.

Manchin said that the Russian probe will continue because "we have a professional staff that is diligently going about its business.

"Our staff is basically looking at all the transcripts from the CIA to FBI to NSA and everybody else.

"We are able to put this puzzle together," he said. "That's where the intel would take us."
