Whether in the public or private sector, an employee should have the rights to: 1. Know the reason for their termination and 2. Challenge if unjustified or there is insufficient evidence of good cause. For a public servant performing a controversial investigation into high level issues, the stakes are higher and an extra level of judicial review is appropriate. If good cause is found, documented, and upheld at review, the termination is justified and should proceed. Otherwise, even having such legislation in place provides an important check. Remember, not only conflict of interest should be avoided, but also the appearance of conflict of interest. The law, and investigations, need to be applied impartially and equally to all citizens regardless of political status, financial position, or powerful connections. This would apply to all special counsel, not just Mueller, and knowing actions may be reviewed to justify or overturn a termination may also encourage investigators to keep the scope of inquiry narrowed down to the original objective, improving efficiency and containing costs.
