It took less than three weeks for the Trump administration to produce its first blockbuster criminal scandal. Gotta be some kind of a record.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz acted with his usual alacrity and immediately added General Mike Flynn to his list of Trump scandals he will never, ever investigate. Senator Rand Paul ruled out the very idea of “having Republicans investigate Republicans.”
“I just don’t think it’s useful to be doing investigation after investigation, particularly of your own party. We’ll never even get started with doing the things we need to do, like repealing Obamacare, if we’re spending our whole time having Republicans investigate Republicans. I think it makes no sense.”
So the answer is simple. Appoint an independent Special Prosecutor. Do it now.
Note: General Flynn was touted as an intelligence expert. He didn’t think that his phone calls were being monitored? Of course, it’s just WaPo anonymous sources again. All the more reason to launch an independent investigation.
