DISTRICT COURT MEMORANDUM OPINION APPROVES APPOINTMENT OF SPECIAL COUNSEL



The Chief Judge in the DC District Court filed a Memorandum Opinion, holding that  the appointment of the Special Counsel by the Deputy Attorney General, then as Acting AG, because the Attorney General had recused himself, was proper. The Court, in an extensive 92-page opinion, held that the DAG had statutory authority to appoint, direct and supervise Special Counsel, in the ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Though a portion of the opinion was redacted, it appears that the issue was presented in connection with an unnamed Witness' Motion to Quash a Grand Jury Subpoena. Readers who wish to review the complete text of the Memorandum Opinion may access it here.
