I doubt that this position (SAUSA) was created to get Special Counsels a means by which they could operate beyond the scope of their authority.
So if that’s how Mueller is using it, then it should simply be denied on that basis, regardless of whether the language of the SAUSA designation would technically allow him to do that.
If his authorization by the AAG explicitly allowed him to exceed his scope by obtaining and receiving the SAUSA status, without any additional or prior approvals by the AAG, then that would be different. However, I doubt that language is in there, since what would be the point - since you could just broaden the scope of the authorization to avoid that being necessary.
Hence, it should be denied, since otherwise what is the point of the AG, or in this case, the AAG, limiting the scope of a Special Counsel if it can be so easily circumvented this way. Therefore, the absence of the allowable use of an SAUSA status in the AG/AAG scope memo should simply mean that such a contravention is not permitted.
Cut off all funding for the fake “SAUSAs” until they are relegated back to their original job position, or make them pay back any additional wages.
THen put their status in writing, Sessions. You can do that or have the DOJ CFO do it, or Congress can act and shut down the whole damned fraudulent show.
Reminds me of the old bromide, “nobody should enjoy the sight of SAUSAge being made.”
