Charles Tiefer, professor in the University of Baltimore School of Law, tells CBS News that "nobody can want" to return to the days of a special prosecutor investigating the executive branch for months or years at a time. Tiefer testified at a House Committee on the Judiciary hearing on July 30, concerning allegations that IRS officials acted against certain political groups.
