“Your own man” lives by Jeff Greenfield regarding Sessions. Politics aside, I chuckled at the eternal NYC playground rules as seen on DailySpec forever and still believe in myself.

Stefan Jovanovich writes: 

Jeff Sessions had no choice if there is going to be even a pretense of “legality”. He cannot investigate himself any more than Senator Cruz could pretend that he was a natural born citizen; a person cannot, under the common law, be the only person who examines his own testimony.

What Mr. Greenfield has not considered is the fact that, having recused himself, the Attorney General is now free to order his deputies to make a complete investigation of “foreign influences on the Presidential campaign of 2016″. He can insist that the scope of the investigation be as broad as possible in order to remove any chance of bias or favor to him.

The Watergate investigation worked precisely because Nixon and his fools for lawyers kept trying to limit the scope of the investigation and thereby narrowed it to only the Watergate burglary. Senator Sessions is not a fool; neither is the President, at least where litigation is concerned. Senator Schumer may want to investigate “the Russians”; the actual investigation will be sufficiently broad that the Democrats will wish the Senator had kept his NY playground smarts to himself.
