Justice Department to appoint special counsel to oversee probe of Russian meddling in 2016 election

Robert Mueller, a former prosecutor who served as the FBI director from 2001 to 2013, has agreed to serve in the role, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said. The move marks a concession by the Trump administration to Democratic demands for the investigation to be run independently of the Justice Department.

The Russia investigation is getting a special counsel: the ex-F.B.I. chief Robert Mueller. It sharply raises the stakes for President Trump.

Wednesday, May 17, 2017 6:04 PM EDT


Robert S. Mueller III, the former F.B.I. director, will oversee the Justice Department?s investigation into Russian meddling in the election, Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein announced.
The appointment follows a swiftly moving series of developments that have roiled Washington, including Mr. Trump?s abrupt dismissal of the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, and the disclosure that the president urged Mr. Comey to drop the bureau?s investigation into his former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn.

Crash and burn time commencing.


Exclusive: House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy told colleagues last year: "I think Putin pays" Trump.

Paul Ryan told them not to leak the remarks.


KIEV, Ukraine ? A month before Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination, one of his closest allies in Congress ? House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy ? made a politically explosive assertion in a private conversation on Capitol Hill with his fellow GOP leaders: that Trump could be the beneficiary of payments from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

?There?s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,? McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016 exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia.

House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy?s assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy.

Before the conversation, McCarthy and Ryan had emerged from separate talks at the U.S. Capitol with Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, who had described a Kremlin tactic of financing populist politicians to undercut Eastern European democratic institutions.

News had just broken the day before in The Washington Post that Russian government hackers had penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee, prompting McCarthy to shift the conversation from Russian meddling in Europe to events closer to home.

This is not a good look for Trump for sure. The only thing I can predict is that the outcome of this investigation is going to look vastly different than the circumstances leading up to it's inception.

I'll tell you who needs to be looking over their shoulder....Hillary.

If a special prosecutor can start investigating Whitewater and end up with Monica Lewinski, then, anything is possible. I think Mueller is going to be duty bound to investigate how her emails leaked since the allegation is that the Russian's did it to influence our Presidential election, and in the course of that investigation, he is going to have to acknowledge that the emails were subject to national security protocols that Hillary was not following.

Those breaches of protocol are felonies. Mueller has the power to subpoena anyone he wishes, including the President, and has unlimited power to indict. He can't very well indict the President's aides, and recommend impeachment for Trump, for crimes he uncovered pertaining to the emails and not indict Hillary for having them on an unsecure server to begin with.

While Comey was willing to turn a blind eye to her crimes, the special prosecutor has no such desire.

This is going to be a very, very, very messy investigation. My hope is that justice is served. If Trump and his associates violated the law, then they need to be held accountable just as we would be.

All I ask is that everyone try to remember that the court of public opinion is just that....opinion.

The acting AG could not have done better. It'll be an exciting ride. Fun entertainment for a long time.

Now that a special prosecutor has been appointed, look for numerous leaks from people that were afraid heretofore. 

AMDG --- 186 days ago -

think both side so the isle respect and trust Mr. Mueller -

so this should no longer be a daily news event - the story is there is a independent investigator conducting an on going investigation on this issue - and we await his findings.

what are the odds either side can stick with that? 

JustWatching --- 186 days ago -

I doubt it. Wait till the investigation goes into areas the dumbocrats don't want it to go. Then they'll want it to stop. Watch and see. 

AMDG --- 186 days ago -

President's tweets post Mueller announcement

"With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special councel (sic) appointed!"

"This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!"

So, the deputy AG, who works for him, appoints a special council. There is almost unanimous support for the appointment, and the appointee. If you are innocent - all is good with the world. The incident is effectively removed from the court of public opinion, and the news. All you have to ever say is, there is an ongoing independent investigation, and I await there findings, which will clearly and once and for all show my campaign's innocence in this matter.

I can't see what purpose those tweets serve. They serve no strategic purpose that I can think of. They are more like a post on neighborhood message board than position of the President of the US.

I'll tell you exactly why...the tail is wagging the dog. I am losing my patience with this kind of behavior.

I think this is the first time a special council has been appointed without any physical evidence. This is all based anonymous sources and biased reporting.

Sadly the Deputy AG caved to the liberals and weak kneed republicans either backed this or ran for the hills.

If you are innocent, why wouldn't you welcome this ? It should be exactly what you want - isn't it ?

You almost figured it out.

Dig deeper. 

Karras --- 186 days ago -

I don't think we need to have a special prosecutor every time a liberal thinks something wrong went on. And just because you say it 1,000 times doesn't mean it's true.

I ask again where is the evidence in Russia working with the team Trump to influence our elections. 

Joe Blow --- 186 days ago -

I don't think we need to have a special prosecutor every time a liberal thinks something wrong went on.



But we need to have one everytime one of you pubies thinks something wrong went on. Hypocrite.

LMFAO

I can't wait till you all go down with your hero. It's comin, wait for it. We are. Patience is a virtue.

Republicans control everything. The Deputy AG is a Trump appointee.

LOL - If you are going to blame, blame the party who has control.

I think there maybe some evidence associated with the decision. Flynn Lock him up! How's that Turkey cash feel'in now? 

Karras --- 186 days ago -

I can't wait to find out which feels worse: losing to Trump or Trump being cleared of anything Russia?

LMFAO at another huge disappointment.

Of course I hold the Republicans responsible for not backing the President and telling the crybaby liberals to shut up.

You think there is evidence? That's b.s.s, there is no evidence and they will find no evidence. Why, because there was no collusion between Trump and Russia. Good grief, the biatch lost because people hated her, get over it, 

AMDG --- 186 days ago -

That's b.s.s, there is no evidence

Well there has been enough reasonable cause for the FBI to start an investigation. And enough for that investigation to go on for some time. And now enough for the Justice department to appoint an independent investigator.

So the options are A.

the leading investigation service, and the lawyer for the United States of America are wasting time and resources investigating something with no good reason other than they are against the POTUS.

or B. They have enough probable cause to investigate whether or not there has been foreign interference in our last election.

I vote B - that does not mean there was, just there is enough reasons to investigate.

The other option is we add the FBI and the Justice Dept to CNN, NYT, etc as yet more people who are just picking on the president

"False Investigations"

and since this is already a done deal

- it would be a much better look for the president to welcome the investigation and look forward to their results, than continue to call it a witch hunt. 

wayward1 --- 186 days ago -

Why, because there was no collusion between Trump and Russia.

There are at least 18 incidents of communication currently being investigated by Trump's campaign communicating with Russian officials.

This is doesn't involve other people. It's all self inflicted. Just like firing Comey, just like staying in touch with Flynn, just like not firing Flynn after being warned about him, just like tweeting about Comey. It's all brought on himself. 

AMDG --- 186 days ago -

this from the NY Times Op Ed piece I posted comes to mind

But Trump's statements don't necessarily come from anywhere, lead anywhere or have a permanent reality beyond his wish to be liked at any given instant.

We've got this perverse situation in which the vast analytic powers of the entire world are being spent trying to understand a guy whose thoughts are often just six fireflies beeping randomly in a jar. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 186 days ago -

but maybe we do when the guy being investigated, fires the guy doing the investigating.

He wasn't doing the investigating. The FBI was. Comey wasn't the entire FBI.

Why is that so hard to understand?

The investigation goes on with or without Comey. 

AMDG --- 186 days ago -

but maybe we do when the guy being investigated, fires the guy heading the agency that is doing the investigating.

Thank you - one needs to be precise around here I guess 

wayward1 --- 186 days ago -

I ask again where is the evidence in Russia working with the team Trump to influence our elections

It's not just influencing our elections - it's influencing our policy.

Trump's people were in regular communications with Russian officials before the election and talked foreign policy. This is a BIG DEAL. That's collusion. This should scare you. It's not about Hillary. It's about Russian officials trying to change our foreign policy to benefit them. 

Karras --- 186 days ago -

I guess you didn't read the whole article you referenced from Reuters:

"The people who described the contacts to Reuters said they had seen no evidence of wrongdoing or collusion between the campaign and Russia in the communications reviewed so far.

So, you are wrong all fronts. 

Karras --- 186 days ago -

but maybe we do when the guy being investigated, fires the guy heading the agency that is doing the investigating.

If anyone needs to be investigated it is Comey. That guy is nuts. He did more to try and influence the election than Putin.

And after the election he pulled the same cr@p. He told congress, under oath that no one has tried to stop the investigation, then a supposed memo, that no one has seen, says the opposite? 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 186 days ago -

This may be the biggest nothing burger that breaks the backs of the anti-Trumpers.

They may go nuclear after they don't get the outcome they are hoping for. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 186 days ago -

but maybe we do when the guy being investigated, fires the guy heading the agency that is doing the investigating.

Still doesn't stop the investigation.

Just a week ago you swore there was no investigation

What happened soupflake?

I heard it was going to be a quick cremation.

There shouldn't be.

They may go nuclear after they don't get the outcome they are hoping for.

Let's hope the clearing of Trump doesn't happen until September. Because if it is in the summer, the demoncrats will takeover the streets and riot.

We need to pass the law where it's ok to run over rioters if they block the highway. 

fuzz81 --- 186 days ago -

There shouldn't be

But there is, and the trumpflakes were denying it despite mountains of real news from WSJ, NYT, CNN, NBC. Not your fox junk where people just tell you what you want to hear. 

SoupIsGoodFood --- 186 days ago -

Just a week ago you swore there was no investigation

Show me where I said there was no investigation.

I'll wait......

Did you go edit all your denial/lying comments?

Poor soupy is in a downward spiral
