I can only imagine the eruption from Dum-Dum should this “consultation” end up going the way it ought to:

Attorney General Matthew Whitaker is consulting with ethics officials regarding possible recusal from overseeing the special counsel’s Russia investigation, the Justice Department said on Monday.

“Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker is fully committed to following all appropriate processes and procedures at the Department of Justice, including consulting with senior ethics officials on his oversight responsibilities and matters that may warrant recusal,” Kerri Kupec, a department spokeswoman, said in a statement on Monday night.

He’s been boiling for months about Sessions’ recusal from the Russia investigation, and now I would guess there is a better-than-average chance Whitaker is going to recuse as well.

Their cunning plan to make this all go away is continuing to blow up in their faces, and it will keep on blowing up in their faces because Trump and his circle of goons and lickspittles are a bunch of cheap grifters.
