4:30PM ET - Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law & Justice and David Limbaugh, Attorney and author The True Jesus: Uncovering the Divinity of Christ in the Gospels and Danielle McLaughlin, an Attorney/Constitutional Expert who co-wrote The Federalist Society: How Conservatives took the Law Back from Liberals, today they join to address the appointment of Robert Mueller to investigate the connections, if any, of Russia into the 2016 election and with President Trump.
The man tasked with investigating possible meddling by Russia in the 2016 presidential election – a probe that will likely encompass President Trump’s recent firing of FBI Director James Comey – once called Comey “one of the finest people I’ve ever met.”
Robert Mueller, Comey’s predecessor at FBI from 2001-2013, has a lengthy, close and somewhat controversial history with the man suddenly at the center of investigations swirling around Trump. Mueller on Wednesday evening was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as special counsel to oversee the Justice Department’s investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election and related issues.

Jonathan will also touch on the accident in Times Square this morning injuring over 20 people.
Democratic leaders have a message for those members of their caucus beating the drum to impeach President Trump: not so fast.
“I would suggest … there needs to be a full investigation first,” Rep. Joseph Crowley (N.Y.), chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said Wednesday. “We need to get to the facts, and let the facts lead where they may.”
In the eyes of several Democrats, however, the facts already lead to impeachment.
The Justice Department on Wednesday night announced it was naming a special counsel to investigate Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election, a response to longstanding calls from Democrats. (h/t The Hill)
