Special counsel appointed
U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, Republican of Tennessee, has applauded the Wednesday decision by the U.S. Department of Justice to appoint former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel in the ongoing federal probe into collusion between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign. “During his service as FBI Director for both President Bush and President Obama, Robert Mueller earned a reputation for independence and integrity, which are exactly the qualities needed to pursue the Russia investigation to its conclusion," said Alexander. "The bipartisan U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence should also continue its investigation and that should include a public hearing with former FBI Director James Comey sooner rather than later.” Fellow US Sen. Bob Corker on Monday said President Trump’s White House must reverse the “downward spiral” it finds itself in. “The White House has got to do something soon to bring itself under control and in order. “It’s got to happen.” Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, made his remarks following reports that the president revealed highly classified intelligence information in a meeting with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador. “Obviously they’re in a downward spiral right now and they’ve got to figure out a way to come to grips [with] all that’s happening," added Corker .
