And here’s what he says:

Our nation is indeed at a crossroads. Will we pursue the search for truth or will we dodge, weave and evade the truth? I am of course referring to the investigation into serious allegations of illegal conduct by the president of the United States — that the president has engaged in a persistent pattern and practice of obstruction of justice. The allegations are grave, the investigation is legitimate and ascertaining the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the unqualified, unevasive truth is absolutely critical.”

McConnell said that in 1998, on the Senate floor, regarding Kenneth Starr’s four-year, $30 million investigation of President Clinton.

Sarah Longwell writes in the Washington Post that “It’s worth listening to this address in its entirety because it is a love letter of sorts — to the rule of law . . .

It’s worth reading Ms. Longwell’s op-ed in its entirety, because — a Republican — she makes such a clear and compelling case.

The only thing she fails to note?  That nothing Kenneth Starr investigated was of major national import. Clinton’s potential transgressions — whether they involved the $30,000 real estate deal that began the Starr investigation or lying about the inappropriate sexual affair that ended it — pale beside Putin’s ongoing attack here and abroad, in which Trump is at least, by his lack of interest (heck, it could have been some 400-pound guy on a couch), complicit.
