Because congressional Democrats never seem to tire of calling for probes into the Trump administration that come up empty, Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell would like to see another one:
I don’t say this lightly: when we escape this Trump hell, America needs a Presidential Crimes Commission. It should be made up of independent prosecutors who look at those who enabled a corrupt president. Example 1: Sabotaging the mail to win an election. #SaveThePostOffice

According to Swalwell this would happen after Trump leaves office, which would mean the Democrats could have five more years to organize a commission.

First things first: A presidential crimes commission of sorts already exists, just not the kind Swalwell likes:
Isn’t this what John Durham does?

That’s cute. Except there’s already a presidential crimes investigation being run by Durham. Nailed a corrupt Obama FBI spy today, in fact. They’re breathing down Swalwell’s neck, hence the panic.

Also, how soon they forget:
You already had a special council 👀

You mean like the Mueller investigation. That found no collusion with Russia. Got it.
