“Parlare a nuora perché suocera intenda”: il caso Trump ed il rapporto Mueller
The Trump case and the Mueller report
The Russiagate undoubtedly constitutes one of the main scandals of the Trump’s US presidency. The investigation on the Russian government's possible interference in the US presidential elections has reignited the debate on the constitutional powers recognized to the Attorney general and to the special counsel with reference to the investigations on the President of the United States of America. The twentytwo months of Mueller's investigation ended with various condemnations and with a sort of acquittal due to the President's lack of evidence, which however did not dispel the uncertainties about his possible indictment. Analyzing the evolution of the US discipline on the powers of the special counsel and starting from the editorial modalities of the Mueller’s latest Report, the aim of this paper is to highlight the lights and shadows of the special counsel's powers vis a vis the division of powers between the Congress and the President.
