Sen. Ben Sasse believes special counsel Robert Mueller is the right man for the job and that his investigation into Russian interference in America’s 2016 presidential election is providing a service to the country.

“We are really fortunate to have him leading this investigation,” Nebraska’s Republican senator said during an interview over lunch at a small cafe in Ashland.

Twenty-five foreign indictments already have been issued, and that’s “a really big deal,” Sasse said, “and when you layer on what some of us who have participated in intelligence briefings know, it’s even a bigger deal.”
