McCain: Need to Investigate 'Avalanche of Leaks'

Republican Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain reiterated his position Tuesday that a special counsel should be appointed to investigate recent national security leaks.

β€œAt the end of the day, do we really expect the [Obama administration] to investigate itself impartially in the midst of an election, on a matter as highly sensitive and damaging as this leaks case?”

McCain asked the Senate.

β€œEspecially when those responsible could themselves be members of the administration.”
