The GOP and the Democrats are working together to make certain President Trump cannot make any recess appointments. They want to keep him from firing Jeff Sessions and replacing him during the recess. Who knows if any of this is true.
The establishment especially wants to keep Special Counsel Robert Mueller in place.
POLITICO and NBC News report Senator Lindsey Graham, a neverTrumper, is working on a bill that will have bi-partisan legislation to prevent President Trump from firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller. He’s counting on all the Democrats voting with him and some Republicans.
“Any effort to go after Mueller could be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency unless Mueller did something wrong,” Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill. He described the legislation he is crafting.
The South Carolina senator promised it would have Republican support and “all the Democrats”. It will mandate that any special counsel established to investigate either a president or his staff can’t be fired “unless you have judicial review of the firing.”

Andy McCarthy dealt with the Sessions issue yesterday. He believes that Sessions’ recusal was much too broad because this isn’t a criminal investigation, it’s a counterintelligence probe.
