The Senate said Tuesday that the investigation was “severely hampered” by the intervention of the White House and has indicated that some of the witnesses in the testimony and appearances were “instructed” not to divulge “potentially privileged information.”

The text also indicates that these witnesses submitted relevant material to the White House for review before it was turned over to the Senate, which allowed the government to control the information that came into the hands of the Senators.
