Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) blasted Republicans on the Judiciary Committee, saying their investigation into the 2016 election is a "whitewash" and comparing it to a controversial House probe.

"To call the Senate Judiciary Committee's Trump Russia investigation halfhearted is too generous. It has been no different than the effort taken by Representative Nunes," he said, referring to Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.

Schumer said the Senate panel's investigation was "designed to let the president and his lawyers interfere with the [special counsel Robert] Mueller probe and get a peek at any potential evidence."

His comments came a few hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee released the transcripts from a slate of interviews with participants in a controversial Trump Tower meeting in June of 2016. Donald Trump Jr. took that meeting with a Russian lawyer after being promised dirt on Hillary Clinton.
