 McConnell backs push for investigation of Russia probe missteps

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday he supported a push by a Republican colleague for an inquiry into potential missteps by law enforcement officials in their probe of possible collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia.

"I think Senator (Lindsey) Graham has raised a legitimate question ... I think it's not inappropriate for the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, with jurisdiction over the Justice Department, to investigate possible misbehaviours," McConnell told reporters.
