FILE: Senate Armed Services Senate Committee member Sen. Angus King, I-Maine questions Gen. John Nicholson, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Feb. 9, 2017.

Maine Senator Angus King told the PBS Newshour last night, the Senate Intelligence Committee will have to meet with new special counsel Robert Mueller to coordinate the investigations into Russian meddling and the Trump Administration:

“We don’t want to get in each others way, King said. “We don’t want to offer immunity, or have them offer immunity that would compromise either one of our investigations.”

King said he thinks both probes can continue on parallel tracks. King says a goal of the Senate probe has to be how to prevent future Russia meddling doesn’t affect any future US elections.
