Sam Graves discusses special counsel for Russia investigation

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller has been appointed as a special counsel to spearhead the investigation into any connections between President Trump and Russia.

The mandate from the Justice Department also gives Mueller the authority to look into any matters that may arise directly from the investigation, including circumstances surrounding the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Sixth District Congressman Sam Graves, a Republican from Tarkio, says he views Mueller's appointment as a positive development and adds that he doesn't feel the investigation will turn up any wrong-doing from the Trump Administration.
