Yes, certainly if Jeff Sessions calls for a special prosecutor it opens him up to charges of using his office to advance Trump conspiracy theories for political gain. Not a comfortable place to be.
I suspect that Session has discovered that the JD is not corrupt, and career investigators with decades of experince know what they are doing from a legal perspective. He, nor trump, can walk in and dictate the JD be used to harrash individuals who trump does not like.
It truly is amazing how dumb trump is when it comes to politics. He assumes that as president, he has the powers to override legal mandates that govern federal agencies. Maybe he is not that dumb, and simply is fucking with people because its to his advantage to jerk around federal agencies.
