Mueller Law

“Though this be madness, yet there is method in [i]t.” [2]

With the legal battles currently raging in Washington, D.C. - the endless Congressional investigations (initiated by both political parties), the appointment of special prosecutor Robert Mueller by the Deputy Attorney General and the call for yet more investigations – now is the time to pass the Independent Counsel Reauthorization Act.
When signing the very last Independent Counsel Reauthorization Act of 1994 into law on July 1, 1994, President William Jefferson Clinton proclaimed the legislation a force for government integrity and public confidence . Shortly thereafter, the special three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (“Special Division”) appointed several independent Counsel. However, after much partisan debate, Congress simply let the legislation lapse in 1999.
