DOJ Appoints Special Counsel in Russia Probe

Who is Robert Mueller?? Mueller has been named special counsel for the Russia investigation. The news comes as President Trump and his administration grapple with the fallout from explosive revelations earlier this week that now-fired FBI director James Comey kept notes of a February meeting indicating Trump asked him to close the agency's investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Robert Mueller born and bred in New York City. Graduated from Princeton and got his law degree from U of Virginia. He's a former Marine who received the Bronze Star, two Commendation Medals, the Purple Heart and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry. He served 12 years in the U.S. Attorney's office. Then worked in Boston in a law firm and went back into government law for the DOJ. He oversaw cases like Manuel Noriega, the Pan Am Flight 103 (Lockerbie bombing) case, and the Gambino crime family boss John Gotti. Mueller was nominated for the position of FBI Director on July 5, 2001. On September 4, 2013, Mueller was replaced by James Comey.

Republicans are applauding this decision. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ion/101806472/
Thanks from iolo

From the OP.

Quote:
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as special counsel to oversee the previously confirmed investigation of Russian efforts to influence the 2016 Presidential election and related matters.

"I have determined that a Special Counsel is necessary in order for the American people to have full confidence in the outcome," Rosenstein said in a statement.

The letter announcing the appointment reads that Mueller is authorized to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and...any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation."

I will have no shame if it'll get that embarrassment out of the Oval Office.

You obviously do not grasp the depth of loathing over half the country has for him.

There should have been special counsel for any number of matters under Obama. The IRS affair alone deserved one.

Obama, worst president ever, a selfie-taking buffoon who made the world more dangerous on his watch.

He's a broadly respected and liked guy. Bush appointed him; Obama kept him on. He's the second-longest serving FBI director.
