Who else would want in at this point?

Rachel has another...

A Trump transition team lawyer, Brian Benczkowski, who this year then went to a gig for Alfa Bank until a month a ago, is now.... wait for it... Trump's pick to head the DOJ's Criminal Div., a massively important post (it was Mueller's before he went on to FBI head).

And yes... he's discussed recusal details.

This is starting to sound less like an administration and more more like an early retirement plan:
1. join the administration
2. recuse yourself from anything that could be trouble and/or work
3. ...
4. Profit
