The Senate has been identified as the best chance for a full public accounting of what happened. That’s in part because Rep. Devin Nunes of California had to recuse himself from a House-led investigation and because Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah is resigning from Congress despite his important watchdog role.
Sen. Richard Burr of North Carolina assured the public that the Senate investigation he is charged with leading will be aboveboard. So far, it doesn’t look anything like the balm that could help heal the country’s political wounds. Recent reports from investigative reporters with Yahoo! News, The Daily Beast and CNN suggest the investigation is stalled even as sources claim Russia allegedly tried to infiltrate the Trump campaign through Trump advisers.
