First, the law requires that a special counsel investigate a specified crime based on specified facts, not try to be the second coming of the Lone Ranger.
But further, the ongoing investigation saps the resources and attention of the Trump administration.

That is potentially more damaging to our politics than any salaciousness that might be tossed up by Robert Mueller.
