Trump lawyer wants separate special prosecutor to probe DOJ-Fusion conflicts. A top member of President Trump’s outside legal team called Tuesday for the appointment of a separate special prosecutor to look into potential conflicts of interest involving Justice Department and FBI officials. Jay Sekulow made the call following a Fox News report revealing that the wife of a DOJ official demoted for concealing his meetings with the firm behind the anti-Trump “dossier” herself worked for the same firm, Fusion GPS, during the 2016 election. Sekulow told Fox News that a special prosecutor should be appointed to look into these issues. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/12/12/trump-lawyer-wants-separate-special-prosecutor-to-probe-doj-fusion-conflicts.html
