Schumer on Special Prosecutor: ‘Where’s the Howard Baker of 2017? We Desperately Need One’

‘The silence of my Republican colleagues on this issue is sort of deafening’

SCHUMER: "I know they’re talking to each other now, the FBI was with the intelligence committee to make sure no one’s granted immunity. It’s two separate issues. We very much need a special prosecutor, chuck, someone independent of the justice Department to get to the bottom of this. I say one more thing. The silence of my Republican colleagues on this issue is sort of deafening. This is not an issue of party, this is an issue of country, foreign interference in the elections is a very very serious serious thing and we should get to the bottom of it. Where’s the Howard baker of 2017? We desperately need one."
