Will Jeff Sessions go?

July 25, 2017

It’s never a comfortable spot to be in when your boss is complaining about you on Twitter and in the New York Times, as Attorney General Jeff Sessions is finding out. Even more worrisome is when you still have the job, but the media are already speculating on your replacement.

Here’s a little comfort for Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Rudy Giuliani insists that he has no interest in taking over Sessions’ job. In fact, that might be Sessions’ best guarantee of job security: nobody else wants his job. Giuliani also said that he told President Trump that he agreed with Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the Russia investigation and thought it was the correct decision under Justice Department regulations.

Then again, if everyone obeyed Justice Department conflict-of-interest regulations, there wouldn’t be any controversy over how to deal with special counsel Robert Mueller because he would have stepped aside himself, the minute we learned that his chief witness, James Comey, was his former protégé and leaked his notes to the New York Times to manipulate the appointment of his former mentor as special counsel. These guys couldn’t be any deeper in each other’s pockets if they were roommates at a pickpockets’ convention.

    I agree with you that Mr. Mueller needs "to go---out of Washington, into private life". He has already hurt our President. No wonder our President has such a hard time getting his program.....even his thoughts.....organized with all the hoopla going on about him. THIS NEEDS TO BE STOPPED IMMEDIATELY. HOW COULD ANYBODY GET ANYTHING DONE! Our country is moving ahead in the economy, getting rid of illegal criminals to make our country great and the strengthening of our military.....GO MR PRESIDENT! God will guide every step of the way! ! ! ! I read what Dr. Jeffers had in the paper today...AND HE IS RIGHT ON.!

    Mr. Huckabee, I wanted to vote in your survey, but it wasn't a yes or no choice for me at this time. I feel very badly about what is happening to our President. The daily assault on his integrity is alarming, and truly understand his frustration. Why can't AG Sessions continue his important work on sanctuary cities, illegal immigration, and also investigate the crimes that have real evidence of Democrats involved in collusion, corruption, pay-to-play politics? Mueller needs to go. The AG is the only one that can put a stop to this ever expanding assault on our President, and he's recused himself. There is no one to rein in Mueller after he found no Russia collusion. The investigation should stop.
    Respectfully,

    After being chosen as the Attorney General candidate, Jeff Sessions told the senators during his confirmation hearings that he would recuse himself from any investigations of Hillary Clinton's email server or the Clinton charitable foundation.

    Having done this, President Trump needs to stop criticizing him for not looking into Clinton's emails etc. This shouldn't stop members of Congress or other departments within the Judicial Branch from investigating.

    I believe Sessions did the right thing to step down. As I remember, he did it because he had contact with the Russian Diplomat earlier and even tho it had nothing to do with the campaign, he felt it was a distraction and that he needed to back down because of it. I am shocked that the President did not understand that. What scares me is if President Trump continues to attack the people that works for him, he will loose many great and brilliant people plus many of his supporters. I know if I now worked from him or was being considered for a position, I would think twice if I would stay or accept the position. Sessions is not Trumps lawyer, he works for the people.
