Okay, this is the article that I was waiting for...compliments of Vox.
Vox, May 17, 2017: The new special counsel investigating Trump: who he is, what he can do, what comes next
It explains what the role of the Special Counsel is what the like path forward will be. One extract:
"Peter Zeidenberg, who served as the assistant special counsel in the investigation of former White House aide Scooter Libby in 2005, noted in a recent Washington Post op-ed that special counsels “are not journalists, and their job is not to inform the public of the results of their investigations.”
“Rather, their mission is to gather all of the relevant facts and determine whether a crime was committed and, if so, whether it can be proved in court beyond a reasonable doubt,” Zeidenberg wrote. “Their work, when done properly, is done in secret."
Note that Mueller will get this done in secret, which may mean that it will disappear from the front pages for months if not a year or more. Will this help Trump and Republicans get their agenda passed without the limelight and continual distraction of the investigation?
Perhaps if Trump can lay off the Tweets.
