GOP Falling Apart: Sen. Goes Against Her Party, Calls For Special Prosecutor On Trump/Russia
Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska is now considering a special prosecutor to look into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election and links between Donald Trump and the Kremlin.
The lawmaker stated that it’s important to have the prosecutor in order to gain the public’s trust again.
“[I]t’s imperative that we — Congress, the FBI, the administration — work to restore the public’s trust. In order to grain that credibility, it may be that we need to look to an independent commission or special prosecutor,” she said in a statement.
Murkowski has stated before that she has complete faith in the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation.
But after Trump decided to fire former FBI Director James Comey, she felt the timing looked suspicious. She stated last week that a special prosecutor “needs to be considered.”
