"The Pence and Sessions revelations pushed Trump defenders into arguments as absurdly parsed as former President Bill Clinton's infamous "it depends upon what the definition of 'is" is" defense. Al Franken, Minnesota Democrat, about "possible contacts between members of President Trump's campaign and representatives of Moscow".
Less than a week ago, White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders denied Trump had ever met with Russian officials during the campaign. They had eight years of a mom jeans-wearing president who goes down in history as the president who gave Queen Elizabeth an iPod and took selfies at Nelson Mandela's memorial service.
"No I don't think nothing's going on, I mean they can do what they wanna do, if they wanna investigate let em investigate and see and then that will tell the truth". Maybe. But we now live in a political reality in which leaks and innuendo rule - not actual proof. It is becoming apparent that the Trump Administration is hiding something.

The White House continued Tuesday to defend President Donald Trump's recent Twitter outburst that accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower while Trump was a presidential candidate previous year. Starr, for example, was initially only supposed to be investigating the Clinton's business dealings surrounding the land deal known as Whitewater but, slowly but surely, that investigation expanded to the point where it resulted in the impeachment of a President who a lie about receiving oral sex from a young intern in the White House. "I think there should be an independent prosecutor looking into all of that, everything, time to get the facts out".

What if Congress grants Trump's demand, however, and launches an investigation? Prior to the Republican National Convention, Trump's campaign worked to remove language from the Republican Party platform supporting Ukraine against Russian-backed rebels. The Washington Post reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had met twice in recent months with the Russian ambassador, despite testifying to the Senate that he hadn't.
