“This is Nixonian,” Casey led his statement with.
In his statement, Casey also joined with the rest of the Senate Democratic Caucus calling for a special counsel to investigate Russian attempts in influence the 2016 election.
“Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein must immediately appoint a special counsel to continue the Trump/Russia investigation,” Casey said.
“This investigation must be independent and thorough in order to uphold our nation’s system of justice.”
Casey took to twitter as well to share his displeasure with the Trump administration’s move.
This is Nixonian. Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein must immediately appoint a special prosecutor to continue the Trump/Russia investigation.
