washington - The leader of the US Republicans in Senate, Mitch McConnell, sees nothing in the Democrats proposal to begin an additional investigation into Russia's possible interference in the presidential elections of 2016. McConnell said Wednesday that such a step would be taken, An ongoing investigation into the issue comes into play.
McConnell responded to a call by Chuck Schumer, the leader of the Democrats in the Senate. Who said that a special commission should investigate the possible influence of Moscow on the elections. According to Schumer, an additional investigation is needed urgently, when President Donald Trump has fired FBI topman James Comey. The resignation was controversial, because Comey was in charge of investigating possible Russian interference in the elections. Many Democrats fear that this investigation is now in vain.
