President Trump Blasts Jeff Sessions
President Trump, who appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions, attacked him again. And again. And again.
With the Trump Train derailing, President Trump is trying everything he can to have Sessions quit so he can replace him with a flunky that will fire Robert Mueller, this, even though the President has made clear that he will not fire Sessions until after the mid-term elections.
Realistically, we know anything could cause President Trump to lose it from one minute to the next. Maybe Sessions should back Trump into a political corner and set him up to be fired. Trust me, Robert Mueller is watching, especially considering former foreign aide advisor George Papadopoulos stated that Sessions was in agreement with a meeting with Russian officials.
Of course, the “fake news” king that is President Trump, tweeted fake news that the investigations and indictments of Duncan Hunter from California and Chris Collins from New York were investigations during Obama’s presidency. NOT TRUE!
“Obama era investigations, of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department.”
“Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff……”
More obstruction of justice charges in those tweets? At the minimum, the President is putting party over country and seems to condone crimes. Only in Trump’s America.
Even Republican Ben Sasse from Nebraska responded to President Trump’s tweet:
“The United States is not some banana republic with a two-tiered system of justice – one for the majority party and one for the minority party. These two men have been charged with crimes because of evidence, not because of who the President was when the investigations began. Instead of commenting on ongoing investigations and prosecutions, the job of the President of the United States is to defend the Constitution and protect the impartial administration of justice.”
On a personal level, it is not only a good thing to see a Republican standup to President Trump, but for Jeff Sessions and the rule of law, unlike Senator Lindsey Graham which has jumped back on the Trump Train to get rid of Sessions.
The sad part is I’ve used the term “banana republic” in my posts numerous times. It shows to what length the President is willing to go to in order to hide his corruption and end the Mueller investigation.
And Trump’s continuing lashing out at his government and officials is displaying on the world stage, losing respect of other nations by the minute.
