Durbin Praises Appointment of Mueller

The #2 Senate Democrat said that Mueller will do the investigation the right way.

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) hailed the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the Russia investigation on Thursday.

“[The president] should get to know Bob Mueller as I did over 12 years when he was director of FBI,” Durbin said on CNN, in response to President Trump’s early morning tweets.

“[Mueller’s] smart. He’s principled. There’s no doubt in my mind that he’ll put country first when it comes to this investigation,” Durbin said.

“This won’t be a witch hunt,” he added.

Durbin said that Mueller will do the investigation the right way and will find the truth.
