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 feel that firing him would be just what the Dems would wish for and they can go long as they wish in approving a replacement for him and finding someone as a replacement would be difficult, to say the least, and it might be someone much worse. I think the President should sit down and have a private talk with him and try to work through his feelings of frustration over it all and try to work it out with Mr. Sessions. Also, stop with the tweets, publicly shaming him, just pray about it and go back to sleep!!!!

    Please, Mr. Huckabee, will you communicate to the president that we were all counting on him to make wise decisions, listen to wise and Godly counsel, and not continue to be childish. He would surely appear foolish if he fires or forces out Jeff Sessions. Does he not have the sense to know these issues should be discussed in private? Many of us supported Trump because the thought of having his opponent in office was terrifying. Not because we want him to continue stumbling along insulting people. We need to see some maturity in order not to lose confidence in him completely. We've already been shaken to the core by republican leaders' cowardice.

    I really admire Jeff Sessions and think President Trump is fortunate to have an AG who has integrity, knowledge of the constitution, commitment to our country, dignity and much more! He is not there to protect the President but for all Americans to enforce our laws and justice for all. If the President breaks the law, he is subject to the AG and the law as all other citizens are. I am a supporter of President Trump and appreciate most of his agenda but I am deeply disappointed in him over his disloyalty to a man who was one of the first to come to his defense and support as you were, Gov. Huckabee! God bless you.

    I understand the president's frustration with Sessions but feel the way he is handling this shows a lack of respect. It's also beneath the dignity of the presidency to carry on the way Trump does in such a public way. I did not expect Trump to change when he got into office, but I did hope that the respect for the office would inspire him to act with more dignity.

    Sessions is a wimp, he needs get in and kick ass, . Ted Cruz was born in Canada cause his father was avoiding the Viet Nam draft!
