FBI Director Chris Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Reportedly Met with Senate Intel Leaders

FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein met with leaders from the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday, CNBC reports.


Wray and Rosenstein met with Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) at the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C. The meeting comes after the top law enforcements officials met earlier Wednesday with Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee.

Last week, Wray and Rosenstein were seen leaving a meeting with Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), ostensibly called to discuss subpoena requests by House intel chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA). Ryan reportedly sided with Nunes over Wray and Rosenstein, handing a win to the embattled committee chairman, whose been conducting his own shadow investigation of the infamous Trump-Russia dossier.

As of now, it’s unclear what the meeting between Wray, Rosenstein and Senate intel leaders was about.
