Responding to a question from Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Senator and Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said that he would recuse himself from any investigation into Secretary Clinton’s purported ethical scandals.
“With regard to Secretary Clinton and some of the comments I made, I do believe that could place my objectivity in question,” Sessions said. “I’ve given that thought. I believe the proper thing for me to do would be to recuse myself from any questions involving those kinds of investigations that involve Secretary Clinton,” Sessions said.
Grassley followed up, asking, “You intend to recuse yourself from both a Clinton email investigation and any matters involving the Clinton Foundation, if there are any?”
Sessions replied simply, “Yes.”
During one of the Presidential debates, eventual winner Donald Trump threatened to appoint a special prosecutor to look into Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
