The former trump Deputy campaign Manager David Bossie says the Americans sees no evidence of collusion between Russia and the trump campaign and the “scandal fatigue” is real.

Four Republican senators are calling for to investigate the appointment of a second special counsel, the Department of Justice and FBI actions that took part in the Russia-trial before the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.

In a letter dated Thursday to state attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy attorney Rod Rosenstein, the legislators wrote that “a special advice is necessary to work with the general inspector is to independently gather the facts, and prosecutorial decisions, if any, deserves to be.”

The four senators are judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa; South Carolina, Lindsey Graham, of Texas John Cornyn; and North Carolina, Thom Tillis.

The senators also released a version of Grassley and Graham criminal referral earlier this year for Christopher Steele — the ex-British spy and author of the infamous Trump dossier — revealed for the first time, the basis for the transfer.

The senators say that Steele is “materially directed the FBI”, he says, that he only shared information in the dossier with business partners, Fusion of GPS and the FBI, if he in fact was the provision of information to the media.

“That is the basis for ensuring the authorization of surveillance of American citizens is largely based on Mr. Steele’s credibility,” the referral States. “The judiciary has a responsibility to determine whether or not Mr. Steele’s false statements to the FBI and if the FBI were the representations to the court in error.”

The senators wrote that “in the light of the sworn statements of Mr. Steele in the British litigation, it seems that either Mr. lie Steele, the FBI or the British court, or that the classified documents reviewed by the Committee contains factually incorrect statements.”

The senators also released February letter, Grassley and Graham at the Ministry of justice inspector General asking that he, the investigation of the DOJ and FBI request for a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance, or FISA Act of arrest warrant against the former trump campaign consultant Carter page.

In this letter they ask the general to check the inspector, “possible improprieties in the FBI-relationship” with Steele, author of the infamous, unverified Dossiers to justify.

They also ask that the relationship between the DOJ official Bruce ear, and Steele, the disclosure of classified information to the press and the investigation into the former national security Advisor Mike Flynn will be examined.

“We have the utmost confidence in the inspector general integrity, fairness and impartiality, and trust that he these reviews in a thorough, unbiased, and current fashion,” the senators wrote in the Thursday letter. “However, by law, the inspector general do not have the tools that a Prosecutor would DOJ to collect all the facts, such as the ability to be a testimony of essential witnesses, not current employees.”

Calling for another special counsel, the senators argued: “The Ministry of justice can’t investigate in a credible, even without these more advanced measures of independence, in order to ensure that the public’s confidence in the outcome.”

The response to the letter, page told Fox News: “My Central concern remains that the U.S. government includes necessary repairs to the damage to America’s national security and justice in the midst of Washington’s interference in the election of 2016. I remain cautiously optimistic that the further disclosure of the facts will contribute to the strategic objective.”
