CLARITY – 11-21-18 To Recuse or Not to Recuse


A Biblical Response to Current Events – 11-21-18

To Recuse or Not to Recuse


What’s Happening: “Should Acting AG Matthew Whitaker do as now-resigned AG Jeff Sessions did and recuse himself from the Mueller probe? If you ask three Democrat Senators who recently (Monday) filed a complaint in D. C.’s federal district court questioning Trump’s right to appoint him (citing the appointment clause), they would shout a resounding ‘yes.’ Others disagree ( ‘There are over 160 instances in American history in which  non-Senate confirmed persons performed, on a temporary basis, the duties of a Senate-confirmed position,’ said DOJ spokeswoman Kerri Kupec.”


Knee-Jerk Response:  “Is he going to be the President’s permanent pick for AG?”


Biblical Response:  “Probably not…until then (and whomever he picks should submit to the ‘advise and consent’ role of the confirmation process), I see no problem with his position. He has given reassurances that he has no intention of directing Mueller to do anything with his assigned investigative duties. Besides, since Trump has submitted his answers to Mueller’s written questions (yesterday), the probe should be nearing its conclusion.”


“Christians? Oh, we believe in getting to the bottom of any accusation. That the Trump Campaign colluded with the Russians in any way (there still is no evidence of collusion or obstruction) is a matter for Mueller to uncover. The truth has a way of coming out (Matt. 10:27). As William Shakespeare expressed his sentiment in the Merchant of Venice, the truth will out.”


Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, help us discover and operate under the truth; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”
