Ex-DOJ official: Abolish the special counsel role

President Trump and special counsel Robert Mueller

While the news cycle continues at a breakneck pace, a prominent Washington attorney says President Trump’s recent pardon of former George W. Bush administration official Lewis “Scooter” Libby ends a shameful chapter in American jurisprudence and is a clear example of why the special counsel belongs on the ash heap of U.S. history.

Scooter Libby

On April 13, President Trump pardoned Libby, who was feeling the effects of painkillers when the president called. The president also called Libby’s attorneys, Victoria Toensing and Joe diGenova.

“He said, ‘I just signed it. The ink’s not dry,’” recalled Toensing. “He said, ‘I don’t know the guy, but I know he was screwed.’ When they put the press release out, they cleaned that up a little bit.”

Toensing told WND and Radio America that President Trump was troubled by what he perceived as a major injustice.
