Schumer's Special Prosecutor Proposal for Russia Lacks 'Fairness'
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer put his foot down on CNN'S "State of the Union" this weekend.
[Schumer] said Sunday that the Senate should refuse to confirm a new FBI director until the Department of Justice appoints a special counsel to lead a probe into allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
"I think there are a lot of Democrats who feel that way," Schumer said on CNN's "State of the Union." "We'll have to discuss it as a caucus, but I would support that move."Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, proposed the idea after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last week.

And it's been months, going on years, that we've been hearing about it. With all the leaks going on in Washington, you'd think they'd have come up with something other than Trump's allegedly bad manners....
