Following President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, many Democrats are calling for an independent investigation of the Trump campaign's alleged collusion with Russia.

On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Democratic strategist Mustafa Tameez said it's troubling that Trump fired the head of the bureau that was investigating his campaign, so he wants to see an investigation run by a prosecutor or body that's not affiliated with the FBI.

Tucker said the whole Russia probe is "ludicrous," and Democrats are simply trying to politicize it further by creating a parallel investigation.

"Why is the FBI investigation inadequate?" Tucker asked. "Is the FBI corrupted?"

Tameez argued that Trump's actions suggest he's trying to intimidate the people who are carrying out a very serious and necessary investigation of his campaign and associates' potential ties to Russia.

Tucker accused the left of spinning the conspiracy theory that the FBI is too corrupt to investigate this case.

"This is totally fake, it's totally disingenuous," Tucker said.
