WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has appointed Robert S. Mueller III, the former FBI director, to serve as a special counsel to oversee its investigation into Russian meddling in the election, Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein announced Wednesday.

The appointment of Mueller dramatically raises the stakes for President Donald Trump in the multiple investigations into his campaign’s ties to the Russians. It follows a swiftly moving series of developments that have roiled Washington, including Trump’s abrupt dismissal of the FBI director, James B. Comey, and the disclosure that the president urged Comey to drop the bureau’s investigation into his former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn.

“I determined that it is in the public interest for me to exercise my authorities and appoint a special counsel to assume responsibility for this matter,” Rosenstein said in a statement. “My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted. I have made no such determination.”

While a special counsel would remain ultimately answerable to Rosenstein — and by extension, the president — he would have greater autonomy to run an investigation than a U.S. attorney.

I welcome this special counsel.  It will shut up libtards such as Chuck Schumer for at least a couple of days before Chuckie makes something else up to pout about.
It was quite courageous for Trump to send Comey packing.  Too bad nobody had the guys to fire that psycho J Edgar Hoover who was FBI director for 48 years. 
When President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, he ended the shortest tenure for a recent FBI director. No FBI director since J. Edgar Hoover served less than four years until Comey’s tenure ended far short of his 10-year term. He was also just the second FBI Director ever fired by a president.

I know how libtards behave.
Despite getting exactly what they wanted, and heaping high praise upon special counsel former FBI director Robert Mueller, there is zero chance that the libtards will accept Mueller clearing Trump of any wrongdoing.

And this is bad thing for Repubs how?   

I don't know of any conservative who's against having a Special Council investigate the claims.
