President Trump is irate at Jeff Sessions recusal from the investigation into the Trump Campaign’s collaboration with the Russian Government. Attorney-General Sessions did the only conceivable thing by insulating himself from this investigation. It would have been an undoubted conflict of interests for him to be involved in this investigation.
Donald J Trump is incensed that Sessions is ot going to fix the investigation for him. The notion of objectivity is Hebrew to Trump. Donald Trump Senior is willfully ignorant. He seems to lack a very basic knowledge of the constitution. This ignoramus needs to be educated. There is the well known legal maxim: “Nemo iudex in causa sua” meaning “nobody may be judge in his own cause.” One could call to mind Lord Hewart’s dictum of 1924 “Justice must not only be done. It must manifestly and indubitably be seen to be done.” That is a tall order. One cannot expect everyone to like every judgment. The losing side tend to say the process was unfair. Justice is about substance and not appearances.*
In the case of Attorney General Sessions this is not a matter of appearances. It would materially affect the course of justice for him to be involved in this investigation.
