Do we need a special prosecutor to investigate Trump-Russia ties?

Critics are slamming Congress' investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 election as a partisan joke. With former House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes now under investigation for possible ethics violations, many say the situation is too serious to leave in the hands of politicians who have a vested interest in the outcome. But others say the Senate is also investigating—let Congress do their job. Unlike the House, members of the Senate are adults. What do you think?

The Daily Intelligencer is reporting "Republican chair Devin Nunes has been working on behalf of President Donald Trump to undermine its investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election." When the House Intelligence Committee chair is briefing the President on the investigation, it's officially become a farceand we need an independent investigation.

Others just don't think an independent investigation is justified at this point. The Senate is also investigating, and people have a lot more faith in their committee as an impartial one. There's some real bipartisan support, Senators on both sides of the aisle seem genuinely invested in finding out the truth, and they already have the clearance necessary to reach a conclusive and speedy outcome.

Even though Nunes has now stepped down, many are still calling for an independent investigation.

 Texas Republican Mike Conaway is taking over the investigation, and many people have also expressed confidence in his ability to be impartial.

Others say this switcheroo is ridiculous. Conaway was an devout Trump supporter during the election and cannot be trusted to tell the truth about the president's alleged ties to Russia.
