WASHINGTON Feb 14 U.S. Senate Democratic leader
Charles Schumer on Tuesday called for an investigation of
potential criminal violations surrounding the resignation of
national security adviser Michael Flynn and said senior Trump
administration officials should face tough questions.
"What I am calling for is an independent investigation with
executive authority to pursue potential criminal actions,"
Schumer told reporters, saying such a probe could not be led by
U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions or White House lawyers.
