This is getting absurd. Now Deputy AG Rosenstein Says He May Need To Recuse Himself In Russia Probe: ABC

This is because he wrote the memo recommending Comey be fired.

If he does recuse himself, the duty of overseeing the probe would fall to Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand, who was appointed to the position a month ago.

I'm wondering if this would be a good development or a bad one for Trump. Perhaps Brand could force Muller to step down, due to his own conflict of interests.

When Pepe Silvia recuses himself, we will have gone full circle.

Life imitating art. Bizarre.



In terms of good or bad for Trump? The optics look so bad but I have a feeling he is playing chess and thinking three to four moves ahead. I personally can't get a grasp of it. Time will tell, I guess.

As a non-American, at least it is entertaining.

I have wondered if perhaps Mueller's obviously-bias staff choices might be part of a back-room deal to sabotage his own probe. Pick a bunch of card-carrying Democrats as your investigators, creating obvious questions about impartiality and conflict-of-interest around Mueller himself, and then this becomes the excuse needed to close the investigation, or at least the excuse for Mueller to excuse himself from it.

As you said, time will tell...

More anonymous sources.

This is exactly what Rosenstein warned about.

Don't be so gullible, people!

Comey is sitting somewhere stroking a cat and trying to stay relevant...

Sorry Comey but America doesn't want a 7th grade gossipy schoolgirl to head the FBI...

Anyhow, this will all be over in a few months and the democrats will move on to something else...

Meanwhile the conservative agenda is pushing through almost unnoticed behind their backs...

Poor pelosi...I don't know if she can tell u what day it is but she sure as hell knows one thing: bush did it...err, I mean trump...whatever the crime, it's Fox News fault..

I said before a SC was appointed that there is not an impartial person on earth to run it. I'm not surprised that the investigation has turned into a farce.

Obfuscation by confusion or vice-versa. I'll let the dust settle, if it ever does, before I make any judgements.

I feel like it's one big cartoon animal fight.
