    Trump continues crusade against Sessions with a fresh line of attack

    President Trump continued his public campaign against his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions, on Wednesday, knocking his longtime ally for not replacing acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe.


    Trump, who fired James Comey as FBI director in May, also has the authority to replace McCabe. It’s unclear why Trump is singling out Sessions on the issue, other than to add pressure as he reportedly mulls firing him.


    “Why didn’t A.G. Sessions replace Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a Comey friend who was in charge of Clinton investigation but got big dollars ($700,000) for his wife’s political run from Hillary Clinton and her representatives. Drain the Swamp!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

    …big dollars ($700,000) for his wife's political run from Hillary Clinton and her representatives. Drain the Swamp!
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 26, 2017


    Trump was referring to the acting FBI director’s wife, Dr. Jill McCabe, a Democrat who ran for a Virginia State Senate seat in 2015. Her campaign was supported by the political action committee of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe. The PAC’s support was not from “Hillary Clinton and her representatives,” though McAuliffe is a longtime Clinton ally. And Jill McCabe lost her state Senate race.




    The president has waged a weeklong attack on Sessions, who was the first sitting U.S. senator to endorse Trump’s campaign. In an explosive interview with the New York Times last week, Trump indicated he regretted appointing Sessions because the top U.S. law enforcement officer recused himself from any investigation related to the Trump campaign — including the probe into whether the campaign colluded with Russia to influence the election.


    “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job, and I would have picked somebody else,” Trump told the Times.


    Sessions recused himself after it was revealed the Alabama lawmaker had met twice with the Russian ambassador during the 2016 presidential campaign but denied any such meetings at his Senate confirmation hearing.


    On Monday, Trump described Sessions as “beleaguered” and publicly encouraged him to investigate Clinton, whom the president defeated more than eight months ago.
    So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 24, 2017


    He echoed that sentiment Tuesday, when he grumbled about Sessions’ “weak” position on Clinton and intelligence leaks.
    Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 25, 2017


    The continued undermining of the nation’s top law enforcement official raised the possibility that Sessions would either resign or be fired. So far, Sessions, in his only public statement on his job security so far, declared that he would continue in his role “as long as that is appropriate.”
    The president, however, has taken a less definite position. In a Tuesday interview with the Wall Street Journal and at a press conference at the White House, Trump left open the possibility that he would dismiss Sessions.


    “I’m very disappointed with the attorney general, but we will see what happens. Time will tell. Time will tell,” Trump said.







    Folks..nothing but excuses to justify his failing administration and the fact that absolutely no one wants to work with a Puppet....and common, how stupid you ought to be to publicly denounce the man you hire in the first place?...nonetheless, the dude who rules the law in the country?....LOL...this is getting more and more interesting....it seems to me that Donaldof ripped a page out of Shonda Rhimes shows !!!!


    Time will tell...sure...when all your dirty works comes to light...and I will be right here posting it...even if that takes 2,3 or 4 years....

    Trump to Sessions: ‘You’re kind of fired! (Maybe.)’



    I was itching to write this week about the ever-shrinking opposition party in Washington, which just unveiled its big new slogan, “A Better Deal” — expertly calibrated to appeal to the slice of 80-something Americans who still fondly recall the Roosevelt administration, about half of whom are Democrats in Congress.


    But once again, hapless Democrats who deserve some scrutiny have been spared by the antics of the president, a relentless innovator who somehow manages to keep coming up with shocking new ways to compel our attention, even when you think the whole shtick can’t get any crazier. Which, by the way, is pretty much the definition of an entertainer.


    In a twist none of us saw coming, President Trump has now declared war not on Iran or North Korea (that’s probably being held back for sweeps week), but rather on his own attorney general.


    After ramping up his criticism of Jeff Sessions in the past week, going as far as to say he wouldn’t have appointed the former Alabama senator had he known that Sessions would recuse himself from the investigation into Trump’s Russian contacts, Trump took his case to Twitter, which is how you can always tell this president is serious about something.


    “Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!” Trump tweeted. A word spelled out in all capital letters is how you know this president is really serious about something.


    If you’re a Trump supporter, you should take all this seriously, too. Because the War on Sessions is telling you something about the kind of leader Trump really is.


    And it should remind all of us, once again, that when it comes to Trump, you have to separate the reality from the reality show persona.
    There’s a lot that’s confounding about Trump’s obsessive berating of Sessions. First, you have to stand back and consider the oddity of Trump’s specific grievance.


    Generally, when presidents lose faith in a subordinate, and it happens in every administration, it’s because that person has compromised his integrity or the standing of the administration.


    President Obama got rid of Stanley McChrystal, the top general in Afghanistan, after he publicly mocked the vice president. George W. Bush accepted the resignation of his friend Mike Brown, the FEMA director, not long after Hurricane Katrina became an all-out catastrophe in New Orleans.


    In this case, Trump is disgusted with the nation’s chief law enforcement officer because he did precisely what any legal expert will tell you he had to do. Both Chris Christie and Rudy Giuliani, former prosecutors who can be counted as staunch Trump supporters, have said that Sessions had no choice but to recuse himself from the Russia investigation.



    What Trump is saying here, quite baldly, is that his attorney general acted ethically instead of using his authority to spare the president a nettlesome investigation, and this constitutes an unforgivable act of treachery. Inside voice, Mr. President. Inside voice.Then there’s this issue of loyalty, which Trump seems to value so highly in everyone else. Sessions was the first senator to embrace Trump when he joined the campaign just after the South Carolina primary, at a crucial moment.

    But his symbolic value to Trump ran deeper than that.A culturally conservative lawman in the tradition of the old, segregationist South, Sessions embodied a powerful, nostalgic current in Southern Republican politics. When he stepped up to a podium in Alabama, just before Super Tuesday, and acknowledged that “we don’t get everything we want” in a candidate while embracing Trump, he sent a signal that religious Southerners could trust a coarse New York billionaire to hold the line against immigrants and liberal chauvinists.

    Sessions took the “Make America Great Again” slogan that Trump slapped on a hat and gave it meaning in parts of the country where Trump could easily have seen the nomination slip away.Later, when a lot of Trump’s allies distanced themselves from the man overheard deriding women on a hot mic, there was Sessions on the Sunday shows and in the debate spin rooms, uncompromisingly vouching for the candidate’s inner morality.Now here’s Trump talking to the Wall Street Journal this week: “When they say he endorsed me, I went to Alabama. I had 40,000 people. … He looks at 40,000 people and he probably says, ‘What do I have to lose?’

    And he endorsed me. So it’s not like a great loyal thing about the endorsement.”Oh. So I guess it’s like that.Let me translate this for anyone in the White House or Congress who’s still willing to sacrifice his own integrity for the promise of this president’s gratitude, or maybe for a pardon: You can tattoo “MAGA” on your forehead, but unless your last name is Trump, you’re always going to be as disposable as an acne pad. (And that probably goes for you too, Jared.)But here, to me, is the larger lesson of Trump’s public breach with Sessions.

    Once again, the guy who held himself out on TV as the world’s toughest and most successful CEO turns out to be, in real life, a surprisingly whiny and ineffectual manager.I mean, Trump has now publicly charged that his own attorney general — the seventh public servant in the line of succession to the presidency — is weak, delinquent in his duties and damaging to the institution of the presidency. If that’s even partly true, the American legal system is in grave peril.So what does the blustery president do, this guy whose catchphrase, “You’re fired!,” catapulted him to national celebrity?
    He complains. He tweets. He talks smack and waits for someone else to act, like a high school kid too scared to break up with his girlfriend.A friend of mine once related to me some very sage advice he’d gotten in business, which was that whenever an employee fails in his job, there are two people who have to take a hard look at themselves in the mirror: the employee who can’t hack it, and the executive who put him in a position to fail.Mr. President, you chose this AG.

    He reports only to you. If he’s so terrible for the country, then man up and find the stones to fire him.That’s what TV Donald Trump would have done. But this Trump we have now — the one with a real job in the real world — seems paralyzed by insecurity. He wants other people to make the tough calls.Sessions can’t stay in his job for long — that seems clear enough. Trump wants an AG who will move to shut down the independent counsel, and somewhere out there is a legal scholar craven enough to do it. (Look up “Bork, Robert” in your history book.)

    It’s only a question now of whether Sessions can stomach the abuse long enough to get himself pushed aside, or whether he’ll do Trump’s bidding one last time and ultimately stand down.Either way, Sessions must understand now that the tough-talking CEO he endorsed bears little resemblance to the president he serves.Mr. “You’re Fired” has become Mr. “You First.”

    Senators prepare bill to block firing of special counsel

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Warning of "holy hell" to pay if the president fires Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a top Senate Republican is working to prevent the potential end result, the dismissal of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.


    Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is working on legislation that would block the firing of special counsels without judicial review. Democrats Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut said Thursday they are among the senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee who are working with Graham on the effort.


    Despite a drumbeat of criticism from President Donald Trump, congressional Republicans have expressed strong support for former FBI Director Mueller, who was appointed earlier this year to investigate allegations of Russian meddling in the U.S. election and possible links to the Trump campaign.

    They have also rallied around Sessions, a former senator from Alabama who has become a daily target of critical tweets from Trump.

    Graham and Whitehouse lead the Judiciary panel's subcommittee on crime and terrorism and have been investigating the Russian meddling along with the committee's chairman, Iowa GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley. A Graham spokesman says the senator's still working on the bill, and it's unclear when it will be introduced.


    Blumenthal said that the bill "might be a committee effort" and said that it would protect Mueller and other special counsels. He said firing Mueller "would precipitate a firestorm that would be unprecedented in proportions."


    Graham has sternly warned Trump not to fire Mueller or Sessions. He said Thursday, "If Jeff Sessions is fired, there will be holy hell to pay."

    Trump has criticized Sessions for recusing himself from the investigation into election meddling after he admitted to meeting with Russia's ambassador during the campaign.

    Sessions, who traveled to El Salvador Thursday to work on an effort to lessen gang violence, has privately told allies he doesn't plan to resign.



    Folks...this says it all...when you have a strong bi-partisan efforts to block Donadof "The Russian Puppet" Trumpler from firing Mueller, so they can get to the bottom of this whole mess Donaldof created, then, you should take note....there are underlying reasons why these senators wants to keep Mueller, and it certainly shows that they prefer believing that Mueller is onto something than believing the lies of Kuchner. Is very clear and if you don't see it, then your IQ level needs to be re-evaluated and/or downgraded immediately.
