Special Counsel Robert Mueller

Special Counsel Robert Mueller

He's a good choice if only because he was FBI chief for a dozen years without a whole lot of drama. Presumably he's well respected by the rank and file and both parties will be satisfied. If nothing else, the Republicans won't be able to whine too much about it.

The best aspect of this is if Trump picks Joe Lieberman for FBI chief, as is rumored. Having a Mueller as special counsel will spare us having to put up with him using the Russia investigation to punish liberals for beating him in a primary.

Yes, he is that petty.
