About That Recusal

Now that AG Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III has recused himself from the investigation of Trump/Russia contacts during the campaign, all should be smooth sailing, right?

Well, maybe not:

The Democratic ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee said Thursday that the FBI had not been cooperative with the committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Emerging after a three-hour meeting with FBI Director James Comey, and speaking after committee chair Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) midday, Schiff told reporters that the committee knew “less than a fraction of what the FBI knows,” and said he “absolutely” learned of intelligence on Thursday that he had not been made aware of as a member of the “gang of eight” – that is, the leaders of both parties in both the House and Senate and of both chambers' intelligence committees.

“I don’t think at all that we’ve gotten the kind of quarterly briefings that we should have been getting. Not now, not in the summer, not in the fall and not even to this day,” he said

This is the James Comey, you'll remember, who practically peed in his pants he was in such a rush to announce, eleven days before the election, that they had discovered more E-Mails!!1!.

Now, just think about one thing: Sessions has recused himself from the FBI's investigation -- which, since he's one of those being investigated, only makes sense, and it's really the least he could do. Literally, the least -- but the FBI is still not cooperating with Congress.

Let me restate that: Sessions has no official role in the investigation. Official.

Have you noticed a tendency on the part of this regime to operate through official channels? Neither have I.
