Attorney General Jeff Sessions must have a Ph.D in making stupid mistakes. By recusing himself from the Russia collusion probe, failing to prosecute Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, and letting James Comey slink away and escape justice, he’s basically made himself indispensable to the liberal left!
Word on the streets is that President Trump has finally had enough of Session’s foolishness. Although the president has tweeted often that he’s dissatisfied with the attorney general’s performance, White House sources are now saying he’s actively looking for a replacement.
Some of the names that have been floated around are Representative Trey Gowdy, Senator Chuck Grassley, and EPA head Scott Pruitt.
Here’s the scoop from Newsweek:
Trump has labeled Sessions as “beleaguered” and “weak” on Twitter and questioned why the Justice Department was not investigating what the president and his allies have claimed was an improper use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance courts to launch a probe into the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia during the 2016 election.
“Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!,” Trump tweeted February 28.
Here’s more from The Root:
You would think that being in charge of the U.S. Department of Justice would make Sessions feel powerful, but you would be wrong.
He has to go to work every single day and walk down the hallway as people snicker and avert their eyes. Even his secretary is like, “Here go yo’ mail,” and just tosses piles of unopened and unscreened envelopes on his desk like it’s the greatest favor in the world.
Donald Trump has been so steady at it, even special counsel Robert Mueller wants to know if he has been trying to get Sessions to quit.
If I were Jeff Sessions, I would just go ahead and quit!
Staying there to suffer the abuse all in the name of pride and retaining power ain’t gonna get him nothing but a crook in his neck. Because Trump is going to continue to apply the pressure of his shoe to Sessions’ jugular.
You’re time is up Jeff Sessions. You might as well start packing your bags and cleaning out your desk. Hey, you could probably get a job at a liberal think tank or a Democrat consulting firm with all they help you’ve given them…
What’s your opinion on Jeff Sessions?
