Default DOJ Appoints Special Counsel To Investigate Russia Ties

From The Huffington Post:

Quote:
In a statement, Rosenstein stressed that his decision “is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted.” But he said he’d determined “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.”
I'd much rather see an independent commission that will focus on things other than just crimes, but this is what we are getting for now since the Republicans in Congress won't even consider it.
