FBI Director James Comey was on the verge of publicly announcing an investigation into Russia’s campaign to influence the presidential election in the summer of 2016.

But two sources told Newsweek that President Obama’s administration scuttled those plans. 

During a meeting at the White House, Comey said he wanted to write an op-ed about Russia’s meddling in the election.

“He had a draft of it or an outline. He held up a piece of paper in a meeting and said, ‘I want to go forward, what do people think of this?’” says a source with knowledge of the meeting, which included Secretary of State John Kerry, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Department of Homeland Security secretary Jeh Johnson and the national security adviser Susan Rice.

The White House balked because it wanted multiple agencies to back the claims.

According to the sources, the op-ed would not have mentioned whether Trump’s campaign was also under investigation.
