Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III…that mild mannered ex-Senator from the great state of Alabama that became the head honcho of the DoJ….he became the Attorney General of the United States of America……
Sessions, the first and only Congressional supporter of Trump in the beginning…he was rewarded for his support and loyalty once “The Man” was elected to the high office…….
Once AG and because of his ties to the Russian thingy he did what any good “politico” should have done…..he recused himself from the investigation so there could be no conflict of interests……
Trump has done more harm to his “agenda” through Twitter than anything the media has attempted…..as with everything Trumpian…it is always about him….on more than one occasion he has Tweeted about his people around him and each time has pretty much thrown them under the “political bus”…..
No one is immune to his “dressing down”…..the SPOX is not….his son-in-law is not…..and now Sessions is the butt of his, Trump’s, ego……but this time it was an interview with NY Times and not on Twitter…….
President Trump says he would never have hired Jeff Sessions as his attorney general if he had known Sessions was going to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. In a New York Times interview, Trump makes it clear that he feels he has been shabbily treated by Sessions, who was the first senator to support his candidacy. “Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself, which frankly I think is very unfair to the president,” Trump said, referring to himself in the third person. “If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, ‘Thanks, Jeff, but I’m not going to take you,'” Trump said. “It’s extremely unfair—and that’s a mild word—to the president.”
Sources tell CNN that Sessions has no intention of resigning after Trump’s remarks. In the wide-ranging NYT interview, Trump said he has no regrets about firing FBI chief James Comey. “I did a great thing for the American people,” he said. He said that weeks before his inauguration, Comey told him about a dossier full of allegations against him, in a move that Trump now believes was an attempt to show he had leverage. Trump also accused special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the Russia investigation, of having “many” conflicts of interest. Asked about his recently disclosed second conversation with Vladimir Putin, Trump said they had discussed adoption, noting that it was the same subject that came up in Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer last year.
Will Sessions turn the other cheek?
Or will he hand in his resignation?
Will he remain a boot licker or will he bow out with some of his dignity intact?
