Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa., said the investigations into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential race shows transparency in the U.S.

His comments about the investigations, including the one being conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller, came during an interview on CNN's "New Day" on Friday.

"I believe the Russia investigation speaks to our transparency in many ways," Dent said.

"The fact is, the Russians meddled in the election, we all know that. They didn't only meddle here, they meddled throughout the world, and it's important this be investigated both by Congress and by (former FBI) Director Mueller."

He called Mueller a "man of integrity" and said he has been fair.

And he said it was not helpful for Republicans to make statements that could potentially undermine the ability of the FBI.

"I believe it's important as Republicans that we have traditionally been the party of law enforcement, not just the federal level, but state and local level as well," he said.

Dent has announced he would not seek another term in 2018 and return to private life.
