Mueller makes invalid arguments to defend his appt

Washington TimesRobert Mueller defended his appointment and authority as special counsel in a legal brief referencing precedents involving Watergate and other past presidential scandals.

The problem here is twofold.

First, the statutes have changed. That makes precedents about the old statute invalid unless they can be easily applied to the new one.

Second, Mueller's appointment did not comply with the new statute, which requires that specific crimes must be identified for the investigation. The current law does not authorize a counterintelligence investigation by a special counsel.
