It is SPECIAL PROSECUTOR – not Independent Counsel

Note

The Independent Counsel statute expired years ago.  There is no legal authority to appoint an Independent Counsel.

The Independent Counsel was appointed by the US Court of Appeals (after the A/G asked that someone be appointed.)

A Special Prosecutor is appointed by the A/G.  There is legal authority to appoint a Special Prosecutor and the A/G makes that decision himself.
