It’s Tuesday, December 12, 2017. This is The Daily Caller Newsroom.


Today, we’re discussing the Alabama Senate election and troubling reports of bias related to the Russia investigation.

Alabamians are headed to the polls Tuesday in a Senate special election the nation has been closely watching. A victory by Republican Roy Moore would solidify President Donald Trump’s take over of the Republican Party, but would allow Democrats to easily tie Republicans to a senator accused of sexual assault.

A win by Democrat Doug Jones would point to a troubling midterm election for the GOP after losses in both Virginia and solidly-red Alabama. It would also put into question how much power Trump actually wields.

TheDC Newsroom also touched on Chuck Ross’ report that President Trump’s legal team is looking for a second special counsel to investigate Robert Mueller.

“The new demand follows a bombshell Monday report detailing that the wife of a Justice Department official who had contact last year with the author of the Trump dossier was herself working for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that commissioned the Trump dossier.”
