Earlier this week, it was revealed that despite saying all the right things, the Senate Intelligence Committee has yet to take the most basic steps necessary to conducting an investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible collusion with Russia in last year’s election. Now, however, President Obama’s former Ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul has an idea of how to help.
Despite the many alarming ties between Trump’s campaign and the regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Senate committee has not only failed to schedule interviews with key players, they have yet to hire any full-time investigators.
If the Senate doesn’t want to give anyone a job, McFaul has a workaround that will allow them to have it both ways:

The tongue-in-check comment highlights a very real concern. The ineptitude of this Congress may actually mean we’ll have to rely on volunteers to conduct arguably the most important investigation in U.S. history.
Luckily, McFaul is more than qualified for the job and, in fact, far too qualified for a job in this White House. He would, however, be a welcome addition to the volunteer task force investigating it.
