Jeff Sessions is not recusing himself from the Michael Cohen fiasco, because of course he isn’t. While many might say there is no distinction between the Cohen investigation and the Russia Investigation, I think it’s fair to categorize them mostly differently. Though I get the feeling that Sessions isn’t thinking so above the board in his reasoning. I’m pretty sure he’s just looking to keep his job. I think everyone realizes that if he had recused himself from yet another investigation that centers around his boss, that he’d be fired so hard and so quick that all that would be left are Session’s Keebler elf ears. Is there a conflict of interest when it comes to being objective about a legal investigation of the man who can fire you?
So Michael Cohen may prove to be quite a thorn in the President’s side. The fact of the matter is that Cohen has been seen as Trump’s “fixer” for about 20 years now, and what he might know, and what he has probably done in the name of protecting Trump…I mean we can’t even begin to guess. Trump will admit he was no boyscout, and in the process of trying to figure out how Cohen relates to the bigger picture of Trump and Russia, the rabbit hole of questionable or illegal activity…well it could be damning. Trump has to be sweating over this pretty hard.
Just prior to the election, Sarah Huckabee Sanders famously said on Twitter, “When you’re attacking FBI agents because you’re under criminal investigation, you’re losing.” Now her boss is attacking FBI agents because he’s under criminal investigation. Man, her life must be a big goofy mess.
