Democratic senator floats subpoena for Mueller report
Sasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russia probe
Sasse, in an interview with ABC's "This Week," said there is "lots of good stuff" about the fact that Mueller is leading the investigation.
"The FBI is a special institution that is supposed to be defending the American Constitution by letting investigative paths go where they lead," Sasse said.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last Wednesday announced the appointment of Mueller to lead the probe.
Sasse on Sunday praised Mueller's record and questioned the motive of Russia, which the intelligence community concluded tried to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
