Al Franken, a comedian turned Senator, is calling for independent investigations into President Trump’s relationship with Russia.

On Sunday he was asked about National Security Adviser Michael Flynn conversing with the Russian Ambassador prior to Trump’s swearing in. Apparently the Democrats are convinced that Flynn had a discussion about removing Russian sanctions.

What the Democrats don’t realize is that most people don’t care about this issue. Most know it’s simply a game the Democrats are playing to gain leverage in a political environment where they have almost no power. They need something to stir the base.
