The bombshell news that James Mueller has been appointed by the Department of Justice to serve as Special Counsel on the Russia investigation comes after a "cascade of damaging developments for Mr. Trump in recent days," as the New York Times reported.
Let's be clear: it's a victory that a special counsel is in place.
But the battle is far from over to get to the bottom of this investigation.
We still need an independent commission with subpoena powers. As House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi put it, "A special prosecutor is the first step, but it cannot be the last. Director Mueller will still be in the chain of command under the Trump-appointed leadership of the Justice Department. He cannot take the place of a truly independent, outside commission that is completely free from the Trump administration's meddling."
And Congressional investigations must continue. As Rep. John Conyers, Ranking Member of the House Committee on the Judiciary noted, "the appointment of a special counsel does not relieve Congress of its responsibility to conduct oversight of the Trump Administration."
