Sen. Kaine: 'We Need to Hear From The President'

Virginia Senator Tim Kaine says Donald Trump should respond to the allegations that he fired FBI Director James Comey for refusing to halt an inquiry into Russian matters.

“It’s getting very, very close to a classic obstruction of justice case.” That’s Kaine, joining a growing Congressional chorus, mostly Democrats, seeking a special prosecutor.

“We have to get to the bottom of it,” said Kaine.

The White House denies the allegations.

Debate Pits Northam, Perriello On Pipeline Stance

Democratic gubernatorial hopefuls Tom Perriello and Ralph Northam square off tonight (5/16) in a televised debate in Norfolk with no studio audience.

At a forum Saturday, dancing anti-natural-gas-pipeline protesters scolded Northam, shocking even Perriello supporters like Max Hamilton, who says, “I think it’s because of people like that Democrats lose elections.”

Northam said he has asked the DEQ to add scrutiny, even though the planned pipelines are federally regulated. “I have done all that I can as a Lieutenant Governor,” said Northam.
