"...This kind of stonewalling has fed the agitation on Capitol Hill for a second special counsel, who would look into everything from the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email investigation to the use of the Christopher Steele dossier to obtain warrants to listen in on members of the Trump campaign. The calls are mistaken. But the frustration is real, and the people demanding a new special counsel—from Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham in the Senate to Kevin McCarthy and Bob Goodlatte in the House—are no fringe players.

These calls proceed despite an imminent report from Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department’s inspector general. The report promises to reveal telling details about what went on at Justice and the FBI, including why the FBI itself would come to recommend the firing of Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. But those pushing for a special counsel say an inspector general is not enough, because he has limited power to subpoena and no power to indict.

All this is true. But missing here is any discussion of the powers Congress itself has, including but not limited to the subpoena and contempt powers that ultimately forced Mr. Wray and Mr. Rosenstein into compliance...."
