“We’re not going to take it lightly.
We’re going with all the facts.
We will do it on our own,” she said.
“We will get the facts, we will make it public.”
“We need to have confidence that we’re not taking things lightly,” Ms. Biden said.
“This is not an easy issue to solve.
This is a very difficult issue to do,” she added.
“But we have to do it.
And I’m confident that if we do this we will have the story, the truth, and we will get to the bottom of it.”
Ms. Biden told reporters that she would also brief reporters before and after the meeting.
“I am going to have a very brief press conference in the morning, and I’m going to be talking about what I have seen and what I’m hearing,” she told reporters.
“There is no doubt that there is a lot of concern about Russian interference in our election,” she continued.
“So I want to reassure our citizens and our government that we are going to do everything we can to ensure that we do not allow that to happen again.”
In her first public comments on the Russia investigation since the election, Ms. Biden also told reporters she has met with several members of Congress who are working to repeal and replace the health care law.
“The American people voted for a leader to lead, and they will not be bullied, they will fight for the American people and for their future,” she tweeted.
“The only thing I can tell you is we are on track to repeal the ACA, which we should have done by now.”
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Ms. Barrack’s remarks.
