Trump says Sessions to remain Attorney General until after midterms

This from someone that has lost his marbles. Maybe he’s jealous of the elf’s precious marbles.

Yeah, one thing I’ve been clear on from the start is that there’s never been a “red line”. Most GOP Congresspeople care as much about rule of law as (per @rickmycroft’s post above) most evangelical preachers care about Jesus’s message of compassion for the poor.

Sessions might be the only one not going to jail after this is all over.

Which really is too bad.

Well there’s Trumps side and not Trumps side. So I’m going to go with being on Trumps enemy list is admirable?

That is an astonishingly low bar.

Was admiring people on Richard Nixons enemy list a low bar?

[Anna Beahm, from cited article] Trump also took issue with the fact that Sessions “doesn’t have the Ivy League pedigree the president prefers.”

Right, because Ivy League schools are the sole gestational institutions of this country’s philosopher-kings, as evidenced by Our Dear Orange Leader.

Basically, he knows that removing Sessions is a trigger point. If he does it before the midterms, some more moderate Republican voters might get pissed off enough to vote Dem and turn the House against him. As it stands, there is still a 25% chance the Republicans maintain control or even gain seats.

If that happens, he knows that he’s safe to do whatever he wants, and 2020 may not even have real elections. If Trump has been a success at anything, it’s knowing how to get away with anything. Dollars to doughnuts that “shoot someone on 5th avenue” was based in that fact. He doesn’t care if everyone knows he’s a murderer as long as (especially because) he can get away with it. He’s good at running out the clock, and this screams of exactly that.

He’ll ditch Sessions and Rosenstein, the second he feels it’s safe for him to do so.

Well, thinking about Spanky’s cough academic cough credentials, the phrase “dog’s breakfast” does come to mind.

Sessions is a True Believer in Trumpism which is one of the few reasons Trump keeps him around.

Uhm, as this administration is already filled with zombie Nazis, it would make sense that at least one of them would be zombie Hitler.

Are we setting up Zombie Hitler as the good guy now?

I read this story as Trump admitting firing Sessions before the election will loose republican votes.

TRUMP wants to fire Sessions to stop the Mueller probe - HURRY MUELLER !

The fallout from Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre” suggests that course of action wouldn’t end well for Trump either.

Hopefully you’re right, but Jimmy Carter lost 15% in the polls as a candidate in 1976 when he admitted having committed adultery in his heart, so fallout today for transgressions doesn’t necessarily follow what the fallout would have been in years past.
