Should Congress launch an independent investigation into Russian meddling? 9 MIN, 45 SEC

Former FBI director Robert Mueller has been appointed as special counsel to oversee the Justice Department’s investigation into Russian meddling. Democrats and Republicans were happy about the move, but President Trump called the appointment the single greatest witch hunt of a president in American history. Congress could take a broader look at the Trump campaign and Russian interference in the election by forming an independent commission, but it’s an idea Republicans still oppose.

Why President Trump keeps sticking by Mike Flynn 9 MIN, 5 SEC

Michael Flynn spent only 24 days as President Trump’s national security adviser. He seems to be at the center of the current investigation into the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russia.
