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.
