BREAKING!! SPECIAL PROSECUTOR APPOINTED!!

And now they’ve appointed a special counsel for the FBI Russia-Trump probe. That is a big big deal.

As we’ve noted before, some think naming a special prosecutor has constitutional issues, and it may not even be efficient, but at least they’ll be totally and completely independent of the White House.

Trump is not going to like this.

UPDATE – But Ed Morrissey does!
