One Year Into The Job, 3 Big Lessons About Special Counsel Robert Mueller

Thursday marks one year since the appointment of Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller. Has any public figure in the United States ever become such a partisan lightning rod after having said so little?

Mueller has achieved the unusual distinction of being both intensely reviled and deeply beloved after appearing on no TV programs and no radio call-in shows; in no newspaper interviews; and in no Snapchat stories, Facebook Live streams or Twitter threads.

Except, that is, for all the ones in which he has appeared as the subject, or as a character, or as the victim of attacks, or as a crusading grand inquisitor, or in all the other roles in which he has been cast given the absence of his own face and his own voice.

1. K & R and here are the three points

1. Mueller is running both the counterintelligence investigation he inherited from the FBI and a conventional criminal investigation.

2. Mueller commands an eye-watering breadth and depth of information.

3. No one knows what inning this is.

Keep up the good work, Mr. Mueller.
