A special prosecutor must be appointed if incriminating evidence emerges about alleged contacts between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, a top Republican senator said Wednesday.
The remarks from South Carolina senator Lindsey Graham come on the heels of a report that Attorney General Jeff Sessions conducted pre-inauguration conversations with Russian ambassador Sergei Kislyak. The FBI, which Sessions oversees, is reportedly investigating Russian election interference and potential links with Trump associates.
"If there is something there and it goes up the chain of investigation, it is clear to me that Jeff Sessions, who is my dear friend, cannot make this decision about Trump," Graham said during a CNN town hall. "There may be nothing there, but if there's something there that the FBI believes is criminal in nature, then for sure you need a special prosecutor."
