United States infowar
“My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted. I have made no such determination,” Mr. Rosenstein said in a statement. “What I have determined is that based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command.”Given people commit three felonies a day, the prosecutor will find something prosecution-worthy if he wants to.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed a former FBI director as special counsel to oversee the investigation into Russian efforts to influence the presidential election, agreeing to Democrats’ demands to elevate the probe and put it outside President Trump’s political chain of command.
Mr. Rosenstein tapped Robert Mueller, whose 12-year tenure at the head of the FBI earned him praise from both Democrats and Republicans who said he is above reproach.
The deputy attorney general, who inherited responsibility for the investigation after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself, said it was “in the public interest” to name a special counsel — though he said that shouldn’t be taken as a suggestion of any wrongdoing.
