    Committees in both the House and Senate are looking into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election, but nearly three-quarters of Americans would prefer an independent, non-partisan commission, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    A majority of Americans, 54 percent, do believe that that Congress should investigate whether there was contact between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.
