Sen. Angus King: Maybe the Senate should hire Comey to oversee its Russia probe

“I had a fun idea in the middle of the night,” King said. “I think our intelligence committee ought to hire James Comey to direct our investigation. Already has his clearances, knows the subject, man of integrity. I’m going to float that idea today and see what kind of reaction I get.”

“Would that be allowed?” CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked.

“I don’t know why not,” King replied. “He’s a free man as of today. He doesn’t have a job.”
