Special investigations and their prosecutors must be completely independent and free from political influence from all fronts. Presidents should not be permitted to fire them nor the Atty General. It is usually the executive office, cabinet, and political appointees who are being investigated and those investigations must be unfettered if the truth is to be revealed. The congress should be the ONLY entity with authority to terminate a special prosecutor and only by a majority vote (no short cuts; no shutting out the other party; no secrecy or behind the door deliberations or decisions.) Totally transparent and only for the reasons stated in the bill. The Atty Gen may be authorized to terminate the special prosecutor only upon majority vote of the Congress. Special Prosecutors are authorized to determine factually wrong doing or the absence of wrong doing and must avoid even the smallest hint of undue influence. Therefore, Congress by majority vote only should be the body making a decision to terminate the Special Prosecutor. Nixon fired the special prosecutor. Then he fired the Atty General who had refused to fire him. Then he fired the Asst. Atty Gen who had refused to fire him (Saturday Night Massacre). If this bill had existed during the investigation of Watergate those firings, the length of the investigation and the additional turmoil and angst might have been avoided.
