Comey’s termination may fasten up Russia investigation: WH

Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], May 12 : The White House has said that removing FBI director James Comey from his post might fasten up the agency's investigation into Russian meddling.

Deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders said, "We want this to come to its conclusion, we want it to come to its conclusion with integrity," while referring to the FBI's probe into Moscow's interference in last year's presidential polls.

"And we think that we've actually, by removing Director Comey, taken steps to make that happen." President Donald Trump would "love nothing more for this investigation to continue to its completion," she added.

The statement came after other officials insisting that Comey's termination happened because of his handling of an investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server, and was unrelated to his oversight of Russia's election hacking.
