Mueller Is Reportedly Using More Prosecutors To Help With Russia Probe

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly tapping more prosecutors to help with his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

According to a report from Bloomberg out Thursday, Mueller is "making more use" of career prosecutors from U.S. attorneys' offices and the Department of Justice, as well as FBI agents.

But, as Axios notes, the report indicates that Mueller is utilizing existing staff members, not adding more people to his team.

Officials told Bloomberg this could be a sign that Mueller is getting ready to hand off parts of the Russia probe as it continues to grow.
