It’s hard to believe that I am saying this, but I fully support this move:
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the first sitting senator to endorse Donald Trump for president, is no longer in charge of the Department of Justice.
Sessions submitted his resignation in a letter to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Wednesday afternoon.
Sessions’ resignation letter was delivered by hand to the White House after it was requested by President Trump earlier Wednesday.
In the letter, Sessions ticked off a list of accomplishments.
“Most importantly as my time as attorney general, we have restored and upheld the rule of law,” Sessions wrote. …”
Jeff Sessions was far better in the Senate than he was as Attorney General. It will be a cakewalk for Sessions to defeat Doug Jones and return to the Senate in 2020. Everyone will be happy. The last two years of Rod Rosenstein’s witch hunt and allowing Antifa to run wild was intolerable.
Note: Trump’s DOJ prosecuting Alt-Right groups while turning a blind eye to Antifa violence spiraling out of control was one of the top reasons so many people sat out of the midterms. The other major reason was nothing being done about social media censorship.
Agreed. I’d rather have Sessions back in the Senate where he can do some real good. He was the premier Senator on immigration issues for years.
I will say that considering Trump’s past appointments it is going to be interesting to see who he picks for AG. Did this just get better or worse?
Kobach is free for the job, just sayin
Based on Trump’s preferences, I’m expecting a based right wing zionist jew who will back him to the hilt, ignore illegal immigration, and ramp up the witch hunt against the naziswanttokillsixmillionjews who got Trump elected in 2016.
On the bright side, in two years Trump will be history, and the coloreds who are the future of the Democrats don’t like Israel.
SPOT – ON ANALYSIS.
@Robbo – Bingo!
Good take on reasoning. I agree. Let’s now see what happens with the ape in Ga that won’t concede and the caravan of gangsters and terrorists with a few women and kids mixed in.
PS : It’s scary how many 100 % insane dumb and pathetic idiots there are in Ga for baboon to have almost become governor !!! Yet ANOTHER reason we need to start the conversation about re-creating a new bigger Confederate States for white nationalists.
Why would anyone want this waffling turd anywhere near power?
Look at Trump’s other appointments. He was probably as good as Trump was ever going to pick for the position.
Ann Coulter has defended Sessions pretty consistently. He’s been a huge disappointment to me in the position, but which of Trump’s picks haven’t been? John Bolton hasn’t started any new wars yet, I guess.
Yes, he’s picked some real winners. De Vos, Nielsen, Sessions, Bolton. Has he chosen anyone good?
Sessions was most likely compromised by the zog deep state intelligence agencies.
What could explain his inaction in any other way?
Maybe he’s a swish?
Good riddance. If James Fields is sentenced to death, there will be blood on Jeff Sessions’s hands.
Sessions’s fundamental problem as USAG is that he was Senatorially nice trying to do a job which requires Honey Badgerism.
That which made Jeff Sessions a beloved Senator among even those in the Senate who didn’t agree with him, his ability to establish and leverage personal relationships, in a body with only 100 members, where leveraging relationships is absolutely critical, is that which made him a less than ideal USAG. His Senatorial nice is what provoked him to recuse himself on the Russia non-troversy. And his Senatorial nice is preventing him from prosecuting Antifa. (That, and I think the big open secret precluding any serious legal action against Antifa is that you don’t have to scratch Antifa’s surface very much in order to discover a lot of Jews with tenure. Nobody wants to step on those toes.)
In contrast, Ted Cruz, very ideologically similar to Sessions, is hated in the Senate, for the very reasons why he would be a good USAG — Because he just doesn’t care who he offends. When you’re wielding the full legal criminal and civil power of the Federal government, you better not care who you tick off.
Sessions cared too much.
It’s always great when someone invokes the Honey Badger.
I fully expect Trump to nominate someone even worse next.
It seems to me that Rosenstein made all the decisions anyway. Sessions mostly gave speeches. I’m glad he’s gone. I don’t even want him back in the Senate.
Now to pick a nasty, mean and tenacious prosecutor. The most important job for the new AG is to clean up the outrageous corruption in the DoJ/FBI. I’d like Chris Christie, but with his absurd “bridge” scandal he would have trouble being confirmed. And recently he’s been making nice to the Clinton syndicate.
Rudy Giuliani might be a good pick. But Trump is apparently incapable of appointing anyone good for any position.
Guiliani? Haven’t you ever been suspicious of him on 9/11? Have you been hitting the brew, Sire?
I am very glad that this p.o.s. is gone. Sessions exhibited far more loyalty to his boss Rosenstein than he did to Trump. He allowed Rosenstein to reject congressional oversight and threatened to resign if Rosenstein were fired. Sessions seemed totally uninterested in combating the rampant corruption in his department. One of Trump’s worst appointments, and that’s saying something.
Sessions was worthless as AG. I seem to remember Eric Holder holding the police department accountable in Ferguson MO. Think about that.
Now somebody can go after the Clinton Foundation which Charity Navigator-a group which rates charities on transparency and honesty- give the Clinton Foundation their lowest rating as fully 95% of money collected for charitable purposes went to salary and upkeep instead.
I always liked Sessions until his multicult lap dance during his confirmation hearing. I was also disappointed to learn that his son-in-law was not some refined Southern gentlemen of old Southern stock.
