Of course, even if you accept Trump’s premise that Congress is beating a dead horse on Russian interference in U.S. elections, it’s part of Congress’s job to pick up where special counsel Robert S. Mueller III left off. (Or, as in the case of the ongoing Republican-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee, to retrace some of his steps.) The Mueller report was necessarily narrow, looking specifically at whether any crimes were committed as Russia interfered in the 2016 election. It’s Congress’s job to fill in the picture.

7. Is the FBI still investigating Trump’s ties to Russia (regardless of the end of the special counsel’s probe)?
10. What did Trump say to Russian President Vladimir Putin in private, especially a meeting in Helsinki where he seized an interpreter’s notes from it and instructed the translator not to talk?
