    Appeals court seeks Mueller's opinion on impact of Sessions firing

    Nov. 9 (UPI) -- A federal court on Friday ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller to explain his views on the possible impact of the departure of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

    In a one-paragraph order, the three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit told Mueller's team it has until Nov. 19 to turn in supplemental briefs explaining "what, if any, effect" Sessions' exit Wednesday has on the Justice Department's Russia investigation.

    Mueller has been investigating potential Russian involvement and collusion by the Trump campaign in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. He has been conducting the inquiry without Sessions, who recused himself from the case over possible conflicts of interest.

    It'll be interesting to see how this all fleshes out in the long term. I suspect the President will somehow through the appointment of his new acting attorney general find a way to conclude the ongoing investigation.

    Of course he will. The acting AG is a throwaway. He's got serious baggage. I suspect that Trump has slipped him some serious money to take this on just long enough to kill the investigation, then Adios.
