When a judge has a potential conflict, or when there is even an appearance of impropriety, one often finds the judge recusing him or herself from the case. But this time it isn't a judge, and we also are not seeing a recusal. Rather, we are seeing a full announcement of an investigation by the same branch that is investigating the investigator.

But the question may be whether he should be the one charged with this important investigation.
