If I'm given the honor of leading this agency, I will never allow the FBI's work to be driven by anything other than the facts, the law, and the impartial pursuit of justice, period, full stop. My loyalty is to the Constitution and to the rule of law. Those have been my guideposts throughout my career, and I will continue to adhere to them no matter the test.
>> Will you commit to informing this committee if you witness or learn of any efforts to interfere with the work of Special Counsel Mueller?>> I'm very committed to supporting Director Mueller in the Special Counsel investigation in whatever way is appropriate for me to do that. But I would consider an effort to tamper with Director Mueller's investigation to be unacceptable and inappropriate, and would need to be dealt with very sternly and appropriately indeed.
