The special counsel assigned by the DOJ to investigate the White House’s involvement with Russia is growing broader. The head of the investigation, former FBI director Robert Mueller, is reportedly now investigating President Trump himself. Trump was drawn into the official investigation because of his firing of James Comey, an event the special counsel will now investigate. The counsel wants to see if Trump fired Comey as part of a broader effort to redirect the investigation into his administration’s alleged ties to Russia.
FINSUM: We still don’t understand what the special counsel is actually investigating. We have not seen a single allegation which actually accuses Trump or his administration of doing something illegal.
