Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) told CNN on Tuesday that FBI Director James Comey will tell him on Wednesday whether or not the FBI is investigating ties between Donald Trump's presidential campaign and Russia.

Whitehouse and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) are leading one of three congressional investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and Whitehouse said that during a March 2 meeting with the senators, Comey promised to confirm if the investigation exists and if so, its scope.
