As Donald Trump and the White House continue to deny any link to the Russian government, each day new information is revealed that conflicts with that narrative. As the scandal of Russia's interference with the 2016 election continues, one of the most well-respected Republicans no longer has confidence that his party can lead an investigation on the issue.

McCain on Congress

Over the last year, speculation grew on an almost daily basis about what Russia's role was during the election. Since Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton, it's been confirmed by the FBI, DOJ, and others that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee in favor of Trump.

In recent weeks, top members of the Trump administration have been found to have been in contact with Russian officials in recent months, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and retired Gen. Michael Flynn who was forced to resign as National Security Adviser over the issue at hand. Just hours after House Intel Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes met with Trump to reveal information about the current investigation into Russia, backlash occurred. As reported by The Hill on March 22, even Sen. John McCain is not pleased.

While joining MSNBC host Greta Van Susteren on Wednesday, John McCain came forward and called out the Republican-controlled Congress for not having the "credibility" to investigate the potential ties between Russia and Donald Trump.

"It's a bizarre situation," McCain said, before adding, "The reason why I'm calling for this select committee or a special committee, is I think that this back-and-forth and what the American people have found out so far that no longer does the Congress have credibility to handle this alone."

Double down

Not long before John McCain made his comments, Rep.

Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, revealed that there was "more than circumstantial evidence" to show collusion between the former host of "The Apprentice" and Russia. Despite the comments made by Schiff, neither Trump nor the White House have elaborated further or issued an offical response.
