• An independent counsel is appointed by the Attorney General or Congress to investigate and prosecute if necessary. Ken Starr investigated Bill Clinton's involvement in a fraudulent real-estate transaction in the 1990s, but ultimately the House impeached Clinton for lying under oath and swaying witness testimony in the Lewinsky affair. In Trump's case, no charges were brought by Congress resulting from Robert Mueller's investigation, but the three articles of impeachment were later reached without appointing special investigators because the circumstances were more immediate and contemporaneously recorded. Impeachment is defined in the Constitution as a political action by the Legislative branch.
