Former FBI Director Robert Mueller Appointed Special Counsel…

“In my capacity as acting attorney general I determined that it is in the public interest for me to exercise my authority and appoint a special counsel to assume responsibility for the matter. My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted. I have made no such determination. What I have determined is that based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command.”

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein


Many believe a special prosecutor is the appropriate course at this time. However, at this point it is arguable that a SP may be premature. Appointing special counsel to take charge of the investigation of maters swirling around Trump and his administration makes sense. If former FBI Director Robert Mueller determines there is solid legal grounds to pursue a special prosecutor the process will move forward.

If at any point there is even the appearance of politics influencing the investigation the American people will notice, and republicans will stand to lose the most. 2018 looms ahead and any perceive political maneuvering by republicans will strengthen the likelihood of democrats taking the house and maybe gaining in the senate.

This is a good start. We shall see where it leads. THE HILL.
