House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Sunday said there’s no need for legislation protecting Russia investigation Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and questioned the integrity of the Department of Justice.

In an interview on NBC News’ "Meet The Press,” the California Republican said he has confidence in Mueller.

“I don't think there's a need for legislation to protect Mueller,” he said. “If there's an issue that arises, we'll take it up. Right now there is not an issue. Why create one if there isn't one?”

McCarthy said he “never believed” in a “deep state” conspiracy against President Donald Trump, but ticked off issues with the Mueller investigation that’ve cast doubt over its fairness.

“I want my government to be fair and open and what I'm seeing raises questions,” he said. “We should look into the questions. It's just driven by the facts. Let the facts take them where they may and that's the responsibility that we have.”

“I have confidence in Mueller,” he said. “I have questions about others within the FBI and the DOJ,” ticking off a list of issues that have been brought up about the Mueller investigative team, including anti-Trump texts between two former members.

“I think that gives anybody doubt,” he said of those and other revelations of purported bias within the FBI. “And I go to people who have dealt with this time and again, and now they have serious doubts.”
