It was never clear what motivated Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, to hand the investigation of Michael D.

Guests: Neal Katyal, a lawyer who drafted the rules that govern special counsel investigations, and Michael S. Schmidt, who has been covering the special counsel investigation for The New York Times.
