  4. White House:

    Some Republicans are hoping lawmakers will soon wrap up investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election that have dragged on for most of the year. But with new details in the probe emerging almost daily, that seems unlikely. Three congressional committees are investigating Russian interference and whether President Donald Trump’s campaign was in any way involved. The panels have obtained thousands of pages of documents from Trump’s campaign and other officials, and have done dozens of interviews. The probes are separate from special counselRobert Mueller’s investigation. Special CounselRobert Mueller can prosecute for criminal activity, while Congress can only lay out findings, publicize any perceived wrongdoing and pass legislation to try to keep problems from happening again. If any committee finds evidence of criminal activity, it must refer the matter to Special CounselRobert Mueller. All three committees have focused on a June 2016 meeting that President Donald Trump campaign officials held in Trump Tower with a Russian lawyer and others.

  5. Commissioner James ONeill:

    This is a huge issue here, we can lay out all the crime numbers that we want, but unless people feel safe, were not doing our job entirely.
