  •  There are likely more Senators who will (0+ / 0-)

    do investigations. It is a leap to say that because the diary points to one Senator willing to investigate that none of the others are going to. Another point is whether Senator Whitehouse is on any of the committees that could do so.

    The comment, while indicating a laudable willingness to investigate, is not very specific as to what he will investigate and where he would do so. It is possible for Freshman Senator to lead an investigation - John Kerry started his investigation of the illegal arming of the Contras just 3 months after entering the Senate. He did though need the approval of Senator Lugar.

    •  That was my question, "How"? (0+ / 0-)

      How can a freshman senator investigate a past president and his administration.  I could maybe see a committee chairman saying this but Whitehouse is not a chairman of anything.  I think this is a bit grandstanding.  I'd like it if he did but I just don't see how he does it.
