WASHINGTON - Robert Mueller, the predecessor of the newly fired FBI director James Comey, will further investigate the possible interference of Russia in the US presidential elections of 2016. That was announced by the US Department of Justice on Wednesday. Mueller has been appointed a special prosecutor in the investigation.
Trump recently unveiled Comey because he was not satisfied with his work. Comey was investigating the possible links between Russia and Trump's entourage. According to Trump, this fact had nothing to do with the resignation.
Robert Mueller was sent a few days before the attacks of September 11, 2001, as director of the FBI. He remained the head of federal investigation until 2013.
