Sessions said previously that he would recuse himself from any investigations pertaining to the 2016 campaign, or the Clinton’s themselves.
And there it is, the last strand of hope that the nutcase wing will hang it's hat on. Of course, Sessions never recused himself from anything involving the Clintons. He could fire up an investigation any time he wants, as long as there is evidence.
I can't tell if this is the best thing to come out of a hearing where Sessions came very close to admitting perjury, but it's close.
I only watched a few minutes because of work, but Jeffries ran laps around Sessions. Best part was when he pointed out the number of times Sessions had said "I don't recall" which was 27, 35, 20 in 3 separate hearings. Then brought up Sessions comment about Hillary saying it 30 times during the email hearing
There seems to be a general sense of confusion of the part of Republicans as to how the justice department operates on a fundamental level. It is not a waiter who takes food orders (in the form of potential investigations) from congress.
Mueller has already gotten to Sessions. Therefore, if he not going to do anything else to further the Trump agenda.
Here's the thing. If you are fed a daily dose of Fox, Rush & Hannity, you are convinced there is overwhelming evidence. Everyday there is another smoking gun against Hillary. There are dumbfounded that others can't see it. All they while their mushy brains leak from their ears. RIP grandpa.
This is my suspicion. Sessions and Mueller have had what we call in the South a "come to Jesus" meeting. Sessions has rolled over about every dark deed he's ever done trying to avoid prison.
Mueller has scared him nice.
Definitely not officially. If he fires Sessions, it will be for perjuring himself to cover up his campaign's contact with Russia. He hinted at this way back in that NYT interview he did when his lawyers accidentally left him unattended for 15 minutes.
Sessions: "Now, Mr. Muell-ah, Mr. Trump has told me I oughtta ask you about 10 grams of uranium that you-"
Mueller: <icy stare>
Sessions: "Yes, suh. You have a nice day, then."
If Trump fires Jeffy the Elf, he'll go running to Mueller and spill everything in exchange for immunity.
