The probe into any potential ties between President Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia will continue, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Thursday morning in a speech on the Senate floor. 

The investigation "will not die," Schumer said, the Washington Examiner reports. "The dismissal of Director (Jim) Comey is part of a much longer pattern of this administration's interfering with or removing people who are in a position to conduct an independent investigation of the president and his administration.

"This is about more than just Mr. Comey. This is about a pattern of events that cast tremendous doubt on whether this administration has any interest in allowing the Russia investigation or any investigation that could be politically damaging to them to proceed unimpeded," the New York Democrat added, according to the Examiner.

Schumer requested a briefing for all senators with Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, CBS News reports.  

"They should do it soon because the questions are just swirling about every day and almost every hour," Schumer said.

Schumer on Tuesday called Comey's firing a "very big mistake."
