Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn has weighed in on the memo kerfuffle
1) I respect the men and women of the FBI and DOJ; 2) I respect both former Director Mueller and current Director Wray; and 3) I believe an impartial ethics investigation of leadership of both organizations during last administration is essential to restore public confidence

This is important.
Cornyn is not known as a Trump supporter and he’s not involved in any of the investigations in the Senate. Cornyn is also not famed for sticking his neck out.
There is clear momentum within the House GOP to agitate for a special counsel to investigate the very obvious collaboration between the FBI and Justice and the Hillary Clinton campaign. If Cornyn is leaning that direction then the odds of Sessions appointing a special counsel are very high…if he wants to keep on being Attorney General
