US Attorney General Appoints Special Counsel To Trump

The announcement comes three days after Trump announced his intention to run again in the 2024 presidential election. Garland said naming a special counsel was "in the public interest." The appointment of an independent special counsel is likely to pursue the goal of taking the wind out of the sails of allegations of political instrumentalization of the Justice Department.

A special investigator had already dealt with Trump: Robert Mueller investigated allegations of Russian interference in Trump's favor in the 2016 US presidential election during the Republican's tenure in the White House in 2017.

During his almost two-year investigation, the former head of the FBI federal police did not find sufficient evidence of illegal secret collusion between Trump's campaign team and Russia. However, he expressly did not exonerate the President from the suspicion of criminal obstruction of justice.
