Senator Chris Van Hollen, as part of a group of 11 Democratic senators, has written to new AG Jeff “See No Evil” Sessions seeking an independent special prosecutor to investigate both the contacts between the Trump campaign and Russia, as well as efforts to cover it up. Here’s Van Hollen’s press release:
It’s gettin’ hot up in here. In every scandal like this one, there comes a time when the miscreants engage in the time honored ritual of “lawyering up,” which for me is both professionally as well as politically deeply satisfying. Thanks to my home state senator for helping that deeply spiritual process along. I think the ritual will begin very, very soon. I put the over/under at about a week.
