Kevin McCarthy: "would be easier" if Sessions recused himself on Russia

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy suggested to Morning Joe on Thursday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions should recuse himself from the Russia investigation. "I think it would be easier... yes," he said.

Update, via McCarthy on Fox News: "I'm not calling on him to recuse himself. I was asked on Morning Joe, if he needs to recuse himself as going forward. As you just heard, Attorney General Sessions said he would rescue himself going forward - appropriate, and that's all my answer was. It's amazing how people spin things so quickly."
