Former FBI boss to lead Russia inquiry

Breaking News image

Former FBI boss Robert Mueller has been named as a special prosecutor to oversee a probe into Russia’s alleged interference in the US election.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said it was “in the public interest” to bring an outsider in to oversee the investigation.

Calls for a special prosecutor have mounted since President Donald Trump fired the FBI director last week.

Mr Mueller is a former prosecutor who served as FBI chief from 2001 to 2013.
