Sen. Whitehouse is not thinking about headlines. He is thinking about getting dark money out of the courts and voting booths.
The Rhode Island senator demanded answers from FBI Director Chris Wray on why questions from Congress go unanswered for years.
He said the matter had been referred to the Senate Ethics Committee.
The Rhode Island senator blasts the GOP's "hypocritical, tire-squealing 180" on the need to wait until after an election to fill a SCOTUS seat, but he really goes to town on Texas Senator (and failing candidate for re-election) John Cornyn for his devotion to Koch Brothers dark money.
