People misread and don't understand the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) concerning the POWERS OF SPECIAL COUNSEL

The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) concerning the POWERS OF SPECIAL COUNSEL is being misunderstood to suggest the Special Counsel can do whatever he or she wants. Nothing could be further from the truth.

"28 CFR § 600.10 - No creation of rights" states:

The regulations in this part are not intended to, do not, and may not be relied upon to create any rights, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or equity, by any person or entity, in any matter, civil, criminal, or administrative.

That does not say that nobody has any rights. It does not say all rights are removed. It says no rights are created.

Look, the CFR is subject to statutory law. It is subject to the US Constitution. Even if the CFR were to state that the US Bill of Rights does not apply, the Bill of Rights would still apply.

Due process is enshrined in the US Constitution, and the CFR is subject to that. There must be probable cause! Everyone, including Donald Trump, may demand that there be probable cause for any criminal investigation treading where the US Constitution demands due process.
