House GOP leaders are starting to come out in strong support of a second special counsel to investigate conservative allegations of bias and abuse at the FBI.
Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said Monday he backs the appointment of another special counsel to look at how law enforcement has handled the Russia probe. Scalise’s statement echoed similar calls from Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) over the weekend.

Donald Trump called Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on his re-election as President of the Russian Federation, according to both the Russian Embassy and the President himself. The President also said he plans to talk to Putin in person in the “not-too-distant future”.

The President ignored both of these reported pieces of advice.
Donald Trump STILL wants to be TIGHT with Putin….
Lord knows what the guy has on him….
I hope Mueller finds out…
