Sessions is Apparently Ready to Violate His Recusal Pledge

Sessions refuses to say if he’s recusing himself from Cohen probe

"I feel like following the rules of the department, which I'm trying to teach all of our people to do, that I should not answer that question", Sessions said when asked whether he was recused in the Cohen case.

When Sessions first announced that he was recusing himself from the investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 election, he did not simply limit the announcement to the Russia probe.

"But it is a policy of the department that if you get into discussing the details of those matters, you can reveal the existence, scope or breadth or nature if a matter".

At the hearing on Wednesday, Sessions made clear that he believes Trump has the authority to unilaterally pardon Cohen and anyone else.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks at a Senate Appropriations subcommittee on the Department of Justice's budget on Capitol Hill, Wednesday, April 25, 2018, in Washington.

"The attorney general considers his potential recusal on a matter-by-matter basis as may be needed", the department said in a statement.

"That calls for a speculative answer, or a question calls for speculation", Sessions said in response to a question from Sen. "I'm just not able to do that".

The absence of a full recusal from the Cohen investigation means that Sessions can weigh in on certain matters related to the investigation that reach Justice Department headquarters, said Stanley Twardy, a former US attorney for CT who's now a white-collar criminal defense lawyer at the law firm Day Pitney. Mr. Rosenstein signed the search warrant authorizing the raid on Mr. Cohen's office, hotel room and home.
