I wonder why Lynch couldn't bring herself to defy the Clintons?

He's old and he's from the south... There's a good chance he's a little racist. His record definitely seems to indicate it. While I can give him a bit of a pass for being a man of his times, he has no business being the attorney general.

Sessions says he'd defy Trump as attorney general if needed

@RealDonaldTrump: AG is overrated. Not good. Kellyanne, who chose this guy?

He blames folks on his long out US long drawn-out southern plantation style drawl, and his family name as reasons as to why he's getting so much flak about being the attorney general (AG) of the US - but he totally ignores he the very actions he committed in the past that warranted such criticism. There might have been a pretty good reason back that even back in the 80's (during Bush Sr's administration) as to why he didn't get the job the first time.

However, its a foregone conclusion that Sessions will be appointed to the AG position, as his political allies are well-positioned in the Republican / Trump committee to anoint him the job anyway - regardless of what he may have said or did. Aside from a of token gesture of an African-American sponsorship to a local chapter of the International Lions Club over thirty years ago, he's past actions and words dictate that he has no intention to lawfully represent all Americans - unless you are a certain member of the upper 1% of the social-economic class.

This is the part where the politician says, "Forget everything I said and did in the past. I'm here to tell you anything you want to hear."

Trump's Tweet this morning - FAKE NEWS – A TOTAL POLITICAL WITCH HUNT! - is destined to be the epitaph of his regime (it's multi-purpose; most all of his nominees can use it)

The all-caps are the squeal of rats suddenly aware their ship is sinking.

@turbotsat, I wonder why hugh... Pays off to be a career politician who is bought and paid for.. as well as buying out key people.

All the democrats huffing and puffing won't result in the senator being confirmed.

Say hello to AG Jeffery Sessions. Sorry, radical alt left, you lose again. . . .

Sorry, radical alt left, you lose again. . . .

Winning or losing on something like this isn't divided between party lines. If he is a good choice, it will be a win for everyone, if he is a bad choice, everyone loses.

That's the problem with the extremist bipartisanship these days - people see winning and losing as if their chosen party is a team fighting against the other team, rather than realizing they're different squads on the same team, that are supposed to have the same goal.
