Sen. Bob Corker, Tennessee Republican, said Thursday that it’s important to take enough time to pass an appropriately strict sanctions and aid package for Ukraine rather than rushing through a sub-par piece of legislation.

“We’re much better off in my opinion passing a really strong package and taking the time it takes to do that, and I think [the Ukraine prime minister] agrees. I think we’re moving along at an appropriate pace,” he said on MSNBC.

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell also asked Mr. Corker about clashing between Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, and John Brennan, director of the CIA, over allegations that the organization was spying on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Mr. Corker, however, declined to weigh in, saying that he’s still waiting for more facts to come out.

“At this point, there’s still more water to go under the bridge,” he said.
