Deputy AG appoints Robert Mueller as Special Counselor on Russia Probe

Henry

He will be looking into all matters relating to Russian involvement. He served as FBI Director. Good idea.

When he was FBI Director he was Comey's boss.

White House was told after the order was signed as Trump heads overseas.

it seems there's a grown-up in DC.

Rosenstein goes from hero to villain and back to hero.  Mueller is now in charge of the FBI investigation.

Here's Rosenstein's order:

Actually, Comey was Deputy Attorney General.  Technically (very technically), Comey was his boss.

not sure if this is the right thread. - I'm finding it hard to keep up! - but: Chaffetz has quit?!? And Lieberman is now the preferred candidate for Director?? But the President thinks there's no need for a Special Counsel?! 

I'm so confused.....

There is a special counsel now. Chaffetz will be leaving soon, or so he said, but not yet. Lieberman is on the short list for director of the FBI.

Don't feel bad ... it's a full-time job to keep up. This has been a massive civics lesson for all of us. You're doing great for someone on the other side of the world. 

I'm starting to feel a lifting of the dread that has been hanging over me since the election.

I still dread DJT's version of the Reichstag Fire. He is not going down without a fight.
