    This should be interesting. Not in the information uncovered, rather the responses from the differing parties as the information is presented.
    Wonder how much will be presented vs. leaks?

    Apparently the deputy AG decided to do this after the NY Times leaked contents of that Comey memo. No way would the deputy AG do this and appoint someone like Mueller (who was the longest serving FBI director since Hoover and confirmed 98-0) if there wasn't something there.

    All phone, text, email and pub conversations will need to be recorded for all US citizens and those with citizens of other nations so that all evidence can be collected for this investigation. It's the only way people.

    That's short sighted, the market always bounces back once the source of turbulence is removed. :)

    Trump already released a response welcoming the investigator and hoping it's a thorough and quick investigation.

    I may well have to hope I don't get banned for this, but: that post is so perfectly you.

    Who knows, you might even take it as a compliment. Feel free, it's not meant to give offense.

    You know it's possible he is innocent, or that he's confident his teflon coating is unbreakable.A pretty big ego on display there, when he's not whining about being picked on. ;)

    I'm sure, an investigation that's been going on since Obama's admin spied on American citizens and has presented 0 evidence is pretty scary.

    Either way, if they find something good for them. I just want to see something of substance.

    Quick? I guess it depends on your definition of quick. I give it at least a year.

    Welcoming? LOL. Um, no. This isn't a welcoming response. It's a "I hope you find nothing" response.

    He can't possibly know everything his staff might have been up to. But Flynn's a good man, right?

    Looks like Trump was only made aware of it shortly before the announcement was made. They're not happy.

    Judging from the unusually measured response this seems to have shut Trump's big mouth for the moment (I was half expecting a Twitter tirade about "the so-called special counsel" or similar). Hopefully he'll learn some respect for the rule of law now.

    I guess now Trump will have to fire Rosenstein, because the Deputy Attorney General has lost credibility....

    Yeah I know about the bounce back lol. But I have to pay attention to whatever stupid **** Trump is going to do every day. And it's every or every other day now. I need a break to watch cartoons after work damnit.
