Special counsels shouldn’t be fired for investigating the president or other member of the executive branch, and this bill ensures that the judiciary can serve as a check on the executive branch’s ability to fire a special counsel.
The executive branch has the power to create or terminate a special counsel, and Congress shouldn’t try to check that power by giving the judiciary the ability to review a firing.
