Sessions pledges to recuse himself from Clinton investigations (The Hill)

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said Tuesday he would recuse himself from any possible investigations related to Hillary Clinton if he is confirmed as President-elect Donald Trump's attorney general.

Sessions said during a confirmation hearing the politically charged comments he made about the Clintons during the presidential campaign would give the appearance he is not impartial in potential probes of the private email server she used while secretary of State or of the Clinton Foundation.

"I believe that could place my objectivity in question," Sessions told Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). "I believe the proper thing would be for me to recuse myself."
