The Trump obstruction of justice probe is bigger than we realized

In retrospect, it makes sense that this kind of episode would exist. On that list of 40-plus questions we know Mueller is interested in asking Trump, eight of them deal specifically with Sessions’s recusal. It’s been clear for a while that Trump was unhappy with that decision — and The Post has long reported Sessions has been a significant focus of Mueller’s — but some questions seemed to allude specifically to an episode such as this:

“What did you think and do regarding the recusal of Mr. Sessions?”

“What efforts did you make to try to get him to change his mind?”
