Brooklyn's U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries Applauds Appointment of Special Prosecutor in Trump Case

Wednesday night, U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, a member of House Democratic leadership and the Judiciary Committee, released the following statement concerning the appointment of former FBI director Robert. S. Mueller to oversee the investigation into possible illegal collusion between the Trump team and Putin’s Russia:

“The appointment of the special prosecutor to oversee the criminal investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible illegal collusion with Russia is an important step in the right direction. America can now have a greater degree of confidence that the investigation will be fair, impartial and comprehensive. No man is above the law in this country. If Donald Trump broke it, he must be vigorously prosecuted without fear or favor.”

Mueller is considered by both Republicans and Democrats to be a serious, highly competent man.

(According to Politico,  some conservatives are hinting that Vice President Pence looks like a particularly good alternative to Trump  right now, especially as the Justice Department moves ahead with a special prosecutor for the FBI’s Russia probe.)
