Robert Mueller Named Special Counsel in Trump-Russian Scandal
This is a good thing. Robert Mueller III, is respected by both Democrats and Republicans. This will lend credibility to the investigation into Trump and his Russian connections.
In less than 200 days in office, Trump is embroiled in an investigation into his young administration.
