Special prosecutor needed to investigate Russian influence on election

Special prosecutor needed to investigate Russian influence on election

That this nation needs and deserves a special prosecutor to investigate possible Russian influence in the last election is obvious and inescapable.

What remains to be seen is who among the Wisconsin congressional delegation, and others with influence from this state, has the integrity and principled sense of duty to demand that investigation.

President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey only heightens the urgency of an independent investigation, something many members of both parties in Congress now recognize.

Trust in our government and our values are at stake.

People like Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus have enjoyed their powerful positions. Now we look to them and others from our state to act in the interest of the citizens of this state and this nation and, in defense of the president or out of recognition of the potential harm to America, demand an independent investigation of this scandal.
