from here on out, the entire thing will be led by robert mueller. "bad idea, good choice." first, to the choice. mueller is an adult. more to the point, he has nothing to prove. that may be the most important quality in someone with nearly unchecked power as a special counsel. he's already overseen complex prosecutions, run the fbi, served under republicans and democrats. he has earned a reputation for rectitude, so he doesn't need to make a name for himself but he has one already. if there is not a crime at the bottom of all of this, he's unlikely to manufacture one in order to save face, so many other prosecutors are tempted to do. mueller is about as impressive a choice as the justice department could have made. now, to the other question, maybe the more important one about whether a special counsel investigation is itself a good idea. democrats have been demanding one for months, so has their farm team at the news networks. those same groups are to many open borders and transgender bathrooms and elementary schools. not everything the mob wants is wise. in this case, he could prov

comes to this investigation, it is worth looking exactly what robert mueller is trying to figure out. he is trying to look at whether or not russia couuded to look at whether or not russia colluded with the trump campaign to help donald trump win the election. and part of that is to see what contact they had with the russians and when. and michael flynn lied about his contact with the russian ambassador. as well as to the fbi. that is why he has pleaded guilty today. the other question is, in return for the guilty plea, what else is he told the special counsel, robert mueller? indeed. the next question is if jared robert mueller? indeed. the next question is ifjared kushner directed flynn, who directed jared kushner? hopefully we will learn more about that. james comey is another name we hear quite a lot during this latest news. he has been tweeting as well. tell us about that. james comey was the former director of the fbi. one of the reasons why, if you're wondering why the name michael flynn sounds most familiar, it's because whenjames comey was fired, he gave testimony to congres

gotten and from the president's own reaction that robert mueller, the special counsel, as well as the investigating committees in the senate are getting closer and closer to getting their arms around those facts, about the exchanges between don jr. and the russian lawyer and the russian spy, the information about jeff sessions talking about russia policy with kiz k kislyak, the ambassador to washington from moscow, and that fact that mueller is getting closer appears to increasingly distress the president. and when he's distressed he fires off those tweets. >> yeah. anthony scaramucci, his first day on the job. let's take a listen to what he had to say. >> i think there's been a disconnect between the way we see the president and how much we love the president and the way some of you perhaps see the president. i think we're doing an amazing job. i was in the oval office with him earlier today. we were talking about letting him be himself, letting him express his full identity. i think he's got some of the best political instincts in the world. the people i grew up with, they so identi

robert mueller apparently believes that a crime or crimes may have been committed by donald trump or donald trump jr. or jared kushner or michael flynn or paul manafort or any and all of those people or other people working in and around the trump campaign for president, and that is why, as "the wall street journal" is reporting, the special prosecutor is now working with a grand jury to hear evidence about his investigation. that grand jury has subpoena power. the special prosecutor does not. the special prosecutor can ask a grand jury to issue subpoenas for documents that he would like to examine. the special prosecutor can ask a grand jury to issue subpoenas for witnesses to come in and testify to that grand jury under oath. it is the grand jury that technically wields those powers, but they always do so under the guidance of a prosecutor whose requests grand juries usually follow routinely. this grand jury is the single biggest threat ever faced by donald trump or anyone else named trump or married to a trump. when jared kushner is subpoenaed to testify to the grand jury, as he s
