Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed a special prosecutor for the Russian probe to investigate not only Russia’s hacking of the U.S. election, but any connections between Donald Trump, his campaign, and Russia that might surface. The special prosecutor is Robert Mueller, which means the DOJ is not fucking around. Mueller was the FBI director before Comey, and a guy that President Obama actually kept on two years beyond his 10-year-term. The fact that I can’t really speak to the man’s politics is actually a blessing.

He’s a hard-ass, too, and he’ll have subpoena power, so Trump’s taxes? Subpoenaed. Michael Flynn’s conversation with Russia? Subpoenaed. Any tapes that Donald Trump might have from the Oval Office? Subpoenaed.

If there’s something to be found, Mueller is going to find it, and if I’m a Republican in Donald Trump’s orbit, I’m running for the hills, because — as we saw with Ken Starr — these investigations have a tendency spread. White House staffers will need to lawyer up; friends and business associates of Donald Trump will need to lawyer up. People thinking about taking a job in this Administration should think again.

It won’t be quick, but when it’s all over, we’ll know for damn sure whether Trump and his corrupt cronies are in bed with Putin.

Enjoy your news cycle, Fox News.

p.s. I’ll dig into reaction to that other story re: Paul Ryan shortly.
