Special Counsel Independence and Integrity Act

This bill codifies certain Department of Justice (DOJ) regulations that govern the appointment, oversight, and removal of a special counsel.

Additionally, the bill provides new statutory limitations and requirements with respect to the removal from office of a special counsel.

Finally, the bill requires DOJ to notify Congress when a special counsel is appointed, before a special counsel is removed, and after a special counsel's investigation concludes.
