Andre Carson: A Special Prosecutor to Investigate Trump-Russia Ties Would ‘Protect the President’

‘In fact, the special prosecutor would even protect the president, dare I say’

EXCERPT:

CARSON: "I think both the Senate and House intelligence committees as well as both armed services committee and other committees of jurisdiction are doing a great job at asking the right questions and unearthing truths that are necessary to get to the bottom of this. I don't think it's out of the question to get a special prosecutor. In fact, the special prosecutor would even protect the president, dare I say. You want to make sure that partisanship or ulterior motives are not at play. But in fact, both committees do well in terms of partisanship. So this pushback on having a special prosecutor should not be one filled with anxiety. It should be one that's hopeful and reflective of our Democratic values."
