Sen. Angus King of Maine said Tuesday he hasn’t seen any “evidence” of the Senate’s investigation on Russia stalled by Republicans in charge.

“I understand the frustration, I feel it myself,” Mr. King said on CNN, in regards to the committee’s the slow progress, but he added that he doesn’t believe it’s because of the leadership.

“I haven’t seen evidence of Chairman Burr slow walking this. If I do I’ll poke him,” Mr. King said.

The Maine independent was responding to reports that Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr was slow to sign off on collecting evidence in the committee’s investigation on Russia. But Mr. King explained the investigation is “complex” and involves several government agencies, a foreign government and thousands of pages of documents to read through, which can be a slow process.

“I think Richard Burr understands, as I told him the other day, history has its eyes on us,” Mr. King said.
