The swamp rats had better be lawyering up!
There is no question that Jeff Sessions should be fired. He abandoned President Trump when he recused himself, watching from the sidelines as Robert Mueller attempted to find enough Russian dirt on the President to justify impeachment.
Then, to the surprise of everyone outside the swamp, Sessions has refused to investigate the many criminal allegations against the Clintons, Barack Hussein, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, Robert Mueller, et al. Many of these “criminal allegations” are not allegations at all, but public knowledge.
Sources inside the Trump White House have revealed that President Trump is considering firing Sessions and replacing him with Rudy Giuliani, who refused the job once before, but who knows, perhaps he has seen the struggles at DOJ and is eager to tackle the challenge.
From 100 Percent Fed Up
President Donald Trump is reportedly thinking about bringing former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani on as his Attorney General, White House sources told Axios on Monday.
Axios’ Mike Allen wrote that Trump “has recently pondered the idea of nominating Giuliani” for the job currently held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillary’s crimes & Russia relations?” Trump tweeted on Monday morning.
Trump’s views on his attorney general have soured in the months since Sessions decided it was best to recuse himself from any investigations involving the Trump campaign, which he was closely associated with. That includes all of the Russia-related investigations, which special counsel Robert Mueller is overseeing.
In an interview last week with The New York Times, Trump said he wouldn’t have hired Sessions if he knew he’d recuse himself from the Russia investigation.
“So Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself,” Trump said. “I then have — which, frankly, I think is very unfair to the president. How do you take a job and then recuse yourself? If he would have recused himself from the job, I would have said, ‘Thanks, Jeff, but I can’t, you know, I’m not going to take you.’ It’s extremely unfair, and that’s a mild word, to the president. So he recuses himself. I then end up with a second man, who’s a deputy.”
When Trump was first selecting his top cabinet officials after winning the November election, Giuliani insisted on being named the secretary of state. He reportedly was not interested in other top posts, including the attorney general.
