GOP Rep admits Russia probe ‘has legs’: ‘There is justification to continue the investigation’

Published

Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) on Thursday conceded there is reason to continue the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 and possible collusion with Donald Trump’s campaign, arguing the probe “has legs.”

The Justice Department and several Congressional committees are currently looking into Russia’s historical interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, as well as what, if any, coordination the adversarial nation had with the Trump campaign.

Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was name-dropped by a GOP operative who launched an “independent campaign” to find Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 missing e-mails. That operative believed those emails had been hacked—most likely by a Russian or Russia-backed group.

Despite once explicitly asking for Russia to find Clinton’s 30,000 missing emails, Trump has repeatedly denied anything to do with Russia’s attempts to influence the election.

In addition to determining whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, special prosecutor Robert Mueller is reportedly investigating the president for possible obstruction of justice over his firing of James Comey. Trump has denied that he demanded loyalty from the ousted FBI director, but also argued it wouldn’t be illegal if he had.
