Supreme court.Ah, you meant right now. My bad. I interpreted what you said to include he was damned either way regarding the recusal, which I disagree with. If he had simply said "fuck you," who could actually stop him?
I do mean right now, but on the recusal he could have been forced. It'd be a thorny battle, but one I'd say he'd eventually lose. The precedent is clear, a conflict of interest requires recusal and he had a laundry list of said conflicts.
Not that it made much difference. Had he decided to stay on and somehow avoided a bitchslap from SCOTUS he'd still have been a spineless wet blanket which would require at most that the Mueller team just be less publicly corrupt.
The thing is, you can play that game without ignominious defeat. If, in response to that organization shitting the bed, you announce a review and change and honestly mean to do so. Its going from the frying pan to the fire, and is effectively playing a high risk game to salvage your high risk game, but if you have the balls, spine, and courage to do it... it'd be possible.True, but like signing on to be the Dallas Cowboy's head coach, opting to head a Federal Agency is understood to be high risk and high reward. You may become a folk hero, but you also may get fired in disgrace through no fault of your own if the organization you nominally run shits the bed for all to see.
Sessions does not have any of the three.
