Graham’s party line

I was disapointed when Sen. Lindsey Graham, often one of the adults in the room, reverted to GOP talking points recently. In the May 17 news analysis Trump’s Russia problem grows, Graham, in response to the James Comey memo saying that President Trump asked him to ease off of the Michael Flynn probe, said, “If there’s evidence that something bad happened, I want to see the evidence.”

Great, but why did he and the rest of the GOP refuse to embrace the need for a special prosecutor? How exactly would “evidence” be gathered without a trustworthy investigation?
