Special Counsel Investigation
The 2017 Special Counsel investigation is an ongoing United States law enforcement investigation of Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and any Russian (or other foreign) interference in the election, including exploring any possible links or coordination between Trumps campaign and the Russian government, "and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation."
The scope of the investigation reportedly also includes potential obstruction of justice by President Trump and others. Since May 2017, the investigation has been led by a United States Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, a former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
