Democratic congressional leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer on Wednesday urged the FBI and Justice Department to include top lawmakers from both parties at a highly sensitive meeting about the Russia investigation, instead of the two House Republicans the White House invited.

QuoteThis meeting is completely improper in its proposed form and would set a damaging precedent for our institutions and the rule of law. 
— Pelosi and Schumer wrote in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray
