Feeling the Heat and Seeing the Light; Issa Ed.

WASHINGTON (AP) — A Republican congressman has called for a special prosecutor to investigate whether Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and was in touch with President Donald Trump's team during the campaign.

Rep. Darrell Issa of California says it would be improper for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to lead the investigation.
If a congressman who has earned a reputation as being a partisan troll is saying this, then Trump is in serious trouble.
The White House is trying to duck it
, of course.

A month into his term and congressmen and senators from Trump's own party are calling for investigations.

Even Bill Clinton's gig didn't fall apart that fast.

Somebody is going to point out to Trump that all of those VP perks of being a former president don't apply if he's impeached and removed. That (and the unspoken "pardon me and I'll go" deal) got Nixon out.

Politicians are loyal to their own party, up to the point where it endangers their own political survival.

It's probably time to start the anchor pool.

What, exactly, are they accusinng "The Russians" of doing to change the outcome of the election?

Did they hack the vote counting machines?

They (or someone) did hack the DNC emils....But what difference did that make, really?

I would like to see some details to back up the innuendo.

And I'd say this if it were Hillary in the whitehouse supposedly aided by a foreign power.

You do know, don't you, that innuendo and such is how almost all political scandals get started, right?

There rarely is something as concrete as finding a dead intern in the office.

And even that will just earn you a morning show on MSNBC. :-/

True that, and even that slimy weasel went on national television and said Trump needs to let the press do its job.

And about those congressional intelligence committee investigations she wants to see first: both chairmen have admitted to contacting media outlets at the behest of the White House to tell them the Russia scandal is no big deal.
