Jeff Sessions out as Attorney General

November 7, 2018

  It had been widely speculated that Jeff Sessions tenure as Attorney General would end after the mid-term elections and today we got the news that he has resigned. Here is more:

Embattled Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned at the “request” of President Donald Trump on Wednesday after more than a year of public criticism from the president.

Sessions’ chief of staff, Matthew Whitaker, will serve as acting attorney general, Trump announced.

Whitaker also will assume oversight of the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and possible collusion by Trump’s campaign in that meddling, according to the Justice Department.

Whitaker, who has publicly criticized the Mueller investigation, by law can serve as acting AG for a maximum of 210 days.

  I was a little surprised his resignation came this quickly after the mid-terms but with the Republicans picking up seats in the Senate it makes the confirmation of his eventual replacement all that much easier–even if the Democrats try to Kavanaugh him or her–so why not cut the cord quickly and end the charade?

  With Jeff Sessions out Matthew Whitaker will be acting Attorney General and because he has no conflict of interest he will now be overseeing Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. I have to admit that this is a scenario I never thought of, I just assumed Rod Rosenstein would continue to oversee the investigation but it makes perfect sense to relieve him from the oversight when the acting Attorney General has no conflict of interest.

  Needless to say the Democrats are upset with this news, some are even calling it worse than Watergate and warning the President not to fire Rod Rosenstein or Robert Mueller–in other words they are up to their typical leftist fear-mongering, which is to be expected.

  Isn’t it funny how the left now loves Jeff Sessions and is willing to defend him? It reminds me of how the left wanted James Comey fired for screwing Hillary Clinton out of the Presidency until Donald Trump fired him and then it became a “constitutional crisis.”

    This fellow will be lucky if he lives out the year. In an op-ed, he wrote that “”lock er up” Hillary should be just that a couple of years ago. I posted about it today.
    The SHTF will start in a few days–Rosenstein or Mueller will be indicted so says me!!
