  1. There aren’t many redeeming features to Jeff Sessions — indeed, maybe just the one — but very publicly and deliberately keeping his body in the way of Trump’s attempt to burn down the Justice Department surely deserves some credit.

  2. This is an interesting turn of events. With key leadership in the Senate reversing course and sending a clear green light to Trump, he essentially can take over the Mueller investigation through a new and potentially beholden Attorney General (presumably one that will have no need for recusal). He never need move against the Asst AG directly.
