No one would have ever guessed that Jeff Sessions would be the person who would destroy Trump. After all, Senator Sessions was the first major politician to endorse Trump. How ironic that Session’s lack of spine would lead to the destruction of the man he endorsed, and the ideas he himself has spent most of his public life championing.
The law says that Sessions does not have to recuse himself unless a crime is being investigated. Bob Mueller is investigating a counterintelligence case, not a crime. This has been discussed at length by Andrew McCarthy. Here is the law (28 CFR 600.1) that governs special-counsel appointments by the Justice Department:
The Attorney General, or in cases in which the Attorney General is recused, the Acting Attorney General, will appoint a Special Counsel when he or she determines that criminal investigation of a person or matter is warranted and — (a) That investigation or prosecution of that person or matter by a United States Attorney’s Office or litigating Division of the Department of Justice would present a conflict of interest for the Department or other extraordinary circumstances; and (b) That under the circumstances, it would be in the public interest to appoint an outside Special Counsel to assume responsibility for the matter.
How Sessions Can Unrecuse –
Call Mueller and Rosenstein in his office. Tell them he is concerned about the scope of the investigation. Ask them if he himself is under investigation for Russian collusion. When they answer no, he should unrecuse himself. If he is not under investigation, then he has no conflict. Sessions never worked for the campaign. He was simply a senator who endorsed Trump, and gave his advise when asked.
How could Rosenstein and Mueller object to Sessions unrecusing himself when they themselves are friends with James Comey–the star witness. Rosenstein is really conflicted because he wrote the letter that Trump used to fire Comey. Then Comey illegally leaked to get his good friend Rod Rosenstein to appoint his other good friend, Bob Mueller, Special Counsel.
Sessions should have Rosenstein and Mueller lay out their case in front of him. If the case looks like it has wondered beyond a counterintelligence investigation about Russian influence in the election, then Sessions should shut it down. After all, Rosenstein and Mueller are borrowing Jeff Session’s power as Attorney General to run the Special Counsel. He needs to reclaim that power.
What Trump Can Do –
Pardon Scooter Libby, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and Kristin Saucier (the sailor who took pictures of a submarine). Trump should announce he can not (in good conscience) be a part of a two-tiered system of justice where people are treated unequally.
Never ever talk to the FBI. Just shut up and take the 5th…unless, of course, you want to end up like Martha Stewart and Scooter Libby.
The Eric Holder Two Tier Just Us System –
Please allow me to point out that Eric Holder endorsed Obama, but never recused himself from any investigations involving him. In Fast-n-Furious Obama used executive privilege to withhold documents which meant he was involved in the crime. Eric Holder played a key role in picking Joe Biden as Vice President.
Watch the below videos and see if you can spot a two-tiered justice system–one for Democrats, and another for Republicans.
