    Special Counsel Will Take Over FBI Russia Campaign Interference Investigation

    Bowing to public and Congressional pressure, Deputy U.S. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed former FBI Director Bob Mueller on Wednesday to be a special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign, Justice Department officials said.


    Mueller will take command of the prosecutors and FBI agents who are working on the far reaching Russia investigation, which spans multiple FBI field offices on both coasts.


    Mueller led the FBI for 12 years under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.



    Things just got much more interesting. What do you know about how this went down?

    Breaking words and reaction right now are coming down from Congress ... Trumps' situation is untenable and apparently this is too important for partisan hackery interference .... so it looks like this is going bi-partisan ... probably except for Mitch McConnell and all his neo-zoom-dweebie-Trumpf-ite hacks ... LOL

    I think you'll find that we like the new special counsel more than you guys do.

    He's a tremendous choice. You should be thrilled.

    Meuller is regarded as an independent Washington outsider who will hopefully be objective. He quit his law firm to start this investigation, financed by the DoJ. Sessions recused himself due to lying, so Rosenstein did the appointment, claiming that the public deserves answers.

    The White House, Flynn, Carter and Manafort must cooperate, but I bet the White House will stall as much as possible. Meanwhile, there's still the Intel committee, who will be hearing Comey's story soon.

    Why aren't you happy? Trump isn't corrupt, so this investigation will exonerate him, right?
