Ex-FBI Chief Robert Mueller Named Special Prosecutor of Russia Probe

I predict in two weeks maybe a month, the Democrats will say Robert Mueller is ill-suited for this investigation. 
They make up something to disparage Mueller and further investigation will be needed.  Why?  Because nothing about this is meant to pursue facts.  It's all about creating talking points to undermine the credibility of the Trump administration.  It’s all a political game.    

NewsMax reports the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller Wednesday as a special counsel to oversee the federal investigation into allegations that Russia and Donald Trump's campaign collaborated to influence the 2016 presidential election, giving Mueller sweeping powers and the authority to prosecute any crimes uncovered in the probe. 

It was a concession by the Trump administration, which had resisted calls from Democrats to turn the investigation over to outside counsel. The White House counsel's office was alerted only after the order appointing Mueller was signed.

In a written statement, Trump insisted anew that there were no nefarious ties between his campaign and Russia.

"A thorough investigation will confirm what we already know — there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity," he declared. "I look forward to this matter concluding quickly."

The appointment of a special counsel ramps up the pressure on Trump and his associates. Mueller's broad mandate gives him not only oversight of the Russia probe, but also "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation." That could well include the firing last week of FBI Director James Comey.
