There are still many questions swirling around about the burgeoning Trump-Russia scandal.
Earlier today, Trump was the asked the following question:
QUESTION: Thank you, Mr. President-elect, can you stand here today, once and for all and say that no one connected to you or your campaign had any contact with Russia leading up to or during the presidential campaign.
Trump didn’t answer the question. It was part of a poor, multi-part question asked by a member of the feckless press corps. Instead, he chose to dodge this question.
Did Russian officials communicate with members of Donald Trump’s team during the presidential campaign? Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov says yes; the Republican transition team says no. One of them isn’t telling the truth.
We need a special prosecutor and a bi-partisan Congressional investigation with subpoena power to investigate this matter. Trump could also clear up a lot of these questions by releasing his tax returns.
