Opinion: Special counsel on Trump won’t calm the political waters

Rumors had been swirling for weeks that US Attorney General Merrick Garland was considering appointing a special counsel to investigate former President Donald Trump. On Friday he did so, announcing that former Justice Department prosecutor Jack Smith would return to government to handle two investigations: The examination of classified and other presidential documents found in Trump’s possession at his property in Mar-a-Lago; and the probe into those who potentially illegally interfered with the transfer of presidential power and/or with the certification of the 2020 election results.
