Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said after a closed-door Senate meeting on Thursday that the federal investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives now appears to be a criminal investigation.
Rosenstein gave the impression that recently-appointed special counsel Robert Mueller was treating the investigation as a criminal matter, Graham explained. Graham also said Trump should honor the Justice Department’s decision to appoint a special counsel to oversee the investigation.
“It was a counterintelligence investigation before now. It seems to me now to be considered a criminal investigation,” he said after a meeting with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

I automatically assumed the special prosecutor was designated to investigate a criminal matter - as in someone has breached the law and Constitution and done something illegal, prosecutable, punishable?
What other type of investigation would take up airwaves and internet searches 24/7 and leave certain journalists frothing and dribbling from their mouths?

this simply means Lindsey Graham/Robert Mueller are now public enemy #1 to the trumpoholics.
i.e. "Graham is a secret liberal", " Mueller is a secret agent for the Dems" , " 'they' never liked Graham anyway" oh and 'Obama', just for good measure.
"Mueller is a secret agent for the Dems"

Wasn't the Iran one us giving them back their rightful property plus interest incurred decades after seizing it? I would call that righting a major Idiot-level wrong, not criminal.
Well sure if you buy into the big ol pile of BULL SH*T.
