GOP leaders to hold news conference tomorrow to discuss Trump-Russia probe

Republican leaders will hold a news conference in the coming days to discuss the Trump-Russian investigation, a person familiar with the discussions said Thursday.

The news conference will take place after Trump’s speech on Capitol Hill, which was expected to focus on the Russia investigation, the person said.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Trump said he had asked for the congressional probes to be shut down, which the Justice Department said it was not able to do under a court order.
