Could a Special Counsel Work in Trump’s Favor?

Prof. Turley: Without credible non-political investigation, Russia issue never will go away.

George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley is often a voice of reason in a sea of media hysteria. Last night he spoke with Martha MacCallum of FOX News about the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel in the FBI Russia investigation.

Turley suggested this could work out well for Trump.

Prof. Turley: Special Counsel Mueller ‘Healthy Dose of Tylenol’ For US

Turley said that until Muller was named, President Trump could not fully clear his name in the face of ongoing leaks and allegations.

The appointment of a special counsel was “almost inevitable when the Comey memo hit,” Turley said.

Mueller, who served under President George W. Bush, was named special counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

“This may be the price of [White House] hubris,” he said. “The deputy attorney general gave the country a healthy dose of Tylenol.”

Turley said he didn’t think a special counsel was needed in the case until Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.
