WBUR: Sen. Ed Markey On The Trump Campaign’s Ties To Russia

Appearing with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today in Washington, President Trump voiced concern about the leaks that preceded the firing of his national security adviser, saying, “Gen. Flynn is a wonderful man. I think he’s been treated very, very unfairly by the media. As I call it, the fake media, in many cases. And I think it’s a sad thing that he was treated so badly. I think in addition to that, from intelligence, papers are being leaked, things are being leaked. It’s a criminal action.”

But Democrats in Washington say this is about much more than leaks. Among those demanding more answers is Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey. He is among 11 Democratic senators calling for the appointment of an independent prosecutor to investigate possible collusion between Trump officials and Russia.
