The greatest accomplishment of The rump Administration in its first 118 days is the appointment of the Special Counsel ( I miss the term Special Prosecutor, which lapsed with the old law) that could—possibly—ultimately trigger their downfall.
And, slap my ass and call me Sally, they named a guy who pretty much walks on water with support everywhere it counts (FBI, Justice, HS, NSA, Congress, and the various spook agencies).
Whichever way it goes, I trust him to get to the truth eventually. Is this wishful thinking? Is it inevitable The President runs a Saturday Night Massacre maneuver once things look grim?
Special Counsel Bob Mueller hates leaks, is relentless, and is both a skilled investigator and prosecutor. I am interested how this works with the dual congressional committees (and a couple of subcommittees) already slowly working their way through the Russian mess. And the other investigations, like the FBI? I suspect he will use the FBI rather than bring in outsiders. . .if he feels they have not been compromised. As I remember, the special prosecutor takes precedence on many issues. I think, because it is Mueller, conflicts can be sorted out. Onward! Excelsior!
