John McCain claims that Congress has no 'credibility' to lead the Russia probes and calls for an Independent select commission to lead.
Congress no longer has the credibility to independently tackle a probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and President Trump and his associates' ties to Moscow, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Wednesday.
With the current feud resparked on Wednesday within the House Intelligence Committee.
McCain's comments come amid an increasingly bitter feud that erupted between members of the House Intelligence Committee earlier Wednesday, after the panel's chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) claimed that he had seen evidence that the U.S. intelligence community incidentally surveilled members of Trump's transition team.
The committee's top Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff (Calif.) fired back, blasting Nunes for routing the committee before briefing Trump himself on the apparent findings and saying that the move "casts quite a profound cloud" over the panel's investigation.
If a special commission was to be created to tackle the probes, could Congress still be involved? Or would it be independent from the house altogether?
