Mike Huckabee believes that Congress too partisan and "toxic" to properly investigate alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

On "America's Newsroom" today, the former Arkansas governor said that's why an independent commission - not the House Intelligence Committee or another congressional panel - should handle the investigation.

"This is an impossible situation to deal with through a public intel committee," Huckabee said. "When you get those guys together - even good guys who mean well - they become a gang of gas bags, performing in front of the camera. And nothing really gets done, except some posturing from both sides."

He warned that a congressional investigation will lead to both sides pointing fingers and further division in D.C.

Shannon Bream pointed out that Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, has said an independent commission is unnecessary because the FBI can handle the investigation.

"I'm not sure the FBI can be trusted in this," Huckabee said, arguing that FBI Director James Comey has "discredited" himself and the agency in recent months.

"As far as a detailed and a thorough and a fair and objective investigation, I don't think it's possible happening within the context of current members of Congress."
