Senators to Sessions: “At stake is the integrity and honesty of our most trusted public officials and the viability of our justice system”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and a group of ten Senators led by Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) are calling on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint an independent Special Counsel to investigate possible illegal communications between retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn and representatives of the Russian government, as well as efforts by Flynn and other White House officials to conceal any wrongdoing.
“An independent investigation is now necessary to determine what General Flynn did, who knew about it, and when,” the Senators wrote. “To maintain the confidence, credibility and impartiality of the Department of Justice, we urge you to immediately appoint an independent Special Counsel to investigate collusion with the Russian government by General Flynn and other Trump campaign, transition, and Administrative officials.”
Right now, a person in Wisconsin working 40 hours a week and making minimum wage earns $15,080 a year. That’s only slightly above the federal poverty line.
