Illinois Democrats Call For Special Prosecutor In Russia Investigation

Illinois Democrats are calling for a special prosecutor to continue investigating possible ties between the Trump administration and Russia. They say this week’s firing of FBI director James Comey is an indication that Donald Trump’s administration wants to hinder an investigation. Some Illinois Republicans also expressed concern over Comey’s firing and said they wanted to know more from the White House. A special prosecutor could be appointed by the Attorney General or through Congress.
