Under intensifying pressure, Attorney General Jeff Sessions abruptly agreed Thursday to recuse himself from any investigation into Russian meddling in America's 2016 presidential election.His "aw shucks, I'm jest a good ole boy who misspoke" schtick sort of is belied by the fact that he's been in the senate for twenty years and he'd been a federal prosecutor for a dozen years. He sure as fuck knew what he was omitting.
Trump is doing his best Stan Byerman routine, saying that Sessions did nothing wrong. Just like Flynn did nothing wrong. But Trump fired Flynn for doing nothing wrong and now Sessions has stepped aside from anything to do with Russia. Trump is blaming the Democrats, as though it was Nancy Pelosi who strong-armed Sessions into meeting twice with the Russian ambassador.
