U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday

but who knows what he'll say next week and the week after that.

Trump said in a Twitter post on Saturday that Sessions"doesn't understand what is happening underneath his command position."

Is he confusing dictator or king with president?

should wait until the elections

Further proof, as if any more could be needed, that he's just another slimy politician, just another me-first, party-first hack. But that's what you get when you elect a slimy businessman.

Not when it comes to Sessions.

Recently, I think that’s the bigger question for the left.

No, every President needs an AG that they can rely and depend on and one that has the Presidents back. Holder protected Obama like a mother bear would her cub. Almost all does, this man on every turn has to look for Sessions. Last year all of the Senate Republicans said to the president if he threatened to fire sessions, there would be hell to pay, but now Lindsey Graham and Grassley have a now came to the conclusion that it’s probably time that session goes, so now the president has the greenlight and the blessing of the senators to get rid of him. Now the president can do it with the blessing of the Senate and doesn’t have to worry about any repercussions. Sessions is a dead man walking.

@bas4 No, every President needs an AG that they can rely and depend on and one that has the Presidents back.

I'd say the AG's job first and foremost would be to ensure the Constitution (which is broader than the 2nd Amendment) is upheld and the needs of the nation are looked after.

I don't believe Sessions should have ever been selected. I'll be glad to see him go, but with Trump his replacement might even be worse.

Please quit trying to run the Presidency like a reality TV show! Only idiots want politics to be entertaining. Most of us want it to be dull, efficient, and effective.

I agree, now tell Eric Holder that, obviously he didn’t listen to what you said.

I don't believe Sessions should have ever been selected. I'll be glad to see him go, but with Trump his replacement might even be worse.

No one knows. But at least he should have an AG that will look into a lot of these accusations that are going on in the left instead of just not getting involved into anything. I have never seen anything like that with any of the previous Presidents. I don’t blame Trump for being frustrated with this guy.

Trump is just looking to fire Mueller to end the investigation. Some people support obstruction of justice, some people don't.

17 ( +19 / -2 )

Many articles this morning have pointed out the disdain with which Trump holds for Sessions, particularly for his non-Ivy League degree and his southern accent (Trump is the ultimate elitist), and those points are true.

But the true cause of Trump's anger is existential. Holding the presidency as he does is holding the tiger by the tail. He must realize by now what a mistake this venture has been: if he'd simply laid low, his crimes would likely have been overlooked, but that is no longer an option.

Firing Sessions before the midterms would cause damage too much for his congressional allies to bear, so he must wait a bit, but every day he waits, Mueller's investigation proceeds. November will likely be too late: Trump can cause havoc verging on a Constitutional crisis by purging Justice in order to remove Mueller, yet the report will have been complete, and Congress will receive it.

Trying to learn anything from a functional illiterate's rants is a waste of time IMHO.

Another instance of witness tampering, and potentially of obstruction of justice. What does it take to provoke a constitutional crisis these days?

Can’t wait for Sessions to get fired. Mostly because it will cause the Dems to erupt in another spasm of rage - hilarious. But also because Sessions has allowed Comey to essentially freeze him out of his own job by getting the special counsel put in place - he said that was his goal when he got canned. He had to cover his own backside.

Sessions is acting like a lapdog for Peter Strzok, Bruce Ohr, and Rosenstein as they continually ignore the real collusion between the Democrat party, Fusion and their British and Russian intelligence agents, and their enablers in the Justice Department. (many who have been fired or demoted). Trump pays off a few mistresses to stay mum about their trysts and that’s somehow a campaign finance violation. Yet Democrats pay Russians for opposition research through a cutout law firm and that’s legit? No, that doesn’t fly.

Sessions should see the writing on the wall and quit so Trump can go ahead and put in place an interim AG that will ensure equal justice under the law. Oh yeah - and it will drive the Dems batty.

Have you bought the 'I'd rather be Russian than Democrat' Tshirt? Interesting times when 35% or so of Americans feel greater 'kinship' with Russians than their neighbors.

But then the alt right wants to see an end to democracy and have it replaced with some form of top down, executive uber alles form of government. The RT crowd and alt right media have played the 35% well.

20 years for collusion, 20 years for obstruction

At this point the entire GOP is obstructing Justice.

There is so much going on in this country and the world. But our President seems to be much more comfortable having hissy fits with his "friends" while picking playground fights with everyone else. 

Someone change his diaper.

To Trump supporters, this is what your President does who gives himself an A+. Any honest civics teacher would give him a very different grade:

Understanding of constitution -- F

Respect for the independence of justice system -- F

Demonstration of principles of equality for all citizens -- F

And the list of failed assignments goes on and on.

What else can we expect from someone who started a sham University, where the only thing that mattered was his name and how much money he could swindle out of students.

Now Sessions is "deep state"? Every day Trumpists get more and more ludicrous in their paranoid delusions. You really believe this crap? Try Occam's razor: the simplest answer tends to be the right one. Trump has always been a sleaze bag with no moral convictions. And a habitual liar. And most of the people surrounding him are cut from the same cloth.

every President needs an AG that they can rely and depend on and one that has the Presidents back. Holder protected Obama like a mother bear would her cub.

Hmm. Evidence for your bear analogy? Thought not.

I don't remember Obama being investigated for possible obstruction of justice. Try again.

Anyway, if you're always equating Trump with Obama and "the left", why are you such a Trump fan?

"I view it as an illegal investigation because great scholars have said that there should never have been a special counsel."

A very small number of scholars believe this. Most constitutional law experts do not (they must be deep state leftists! /s). In any case, Trump is not concerned with justice or constitutionality. That should be amply clear by now. He is looking out for #1 -- himself. If he has nothing to hide, nothing he did wrong, he wouldn't be barking like a bad-tempered chihuahua about "witch hunts" and "angry Democrats" and "fake news".

Well you get an F for History. Trump didn't start the school, and it's not a university. He sold the rights to have his named used on it.

Can't wait for Sessions to get fired.

Funny thing about that, Wolf: I can't either. Trump has been whining petulantly for a year about the unfairness of Session's recusal. It gives him a chance to blame others rather than face responsibility. And Sessions is a terrible AG.

So rip off that bandaid, Don: Fire Sessions, start the dominoes toppling, and see where it goes. (Note: It will not go anywhere good; under bandaids often lie festering wounds.) Trump is in "damned if you do, damned if you don't" land.

Will they be be 'hyperventilating' or 'go into meltdown' too? I hear they do, although I've yet to see footage of it. If your principle view of politics is that it should annoy people then you have much better options than merely firing someone. In the meantime, nothing gets done in the USA and the swamp gets bigger and bigger.

Not as bad as the left and CNN just had a dozen hits explode in their faces.

If that infuriates the left then that should be worn with a badge of honor.

Hmm. Evidence for your bear analogy?

http://dailycaller.com/2017/06/08/holder-openly-pledged-loyalty-to-obama-and-nobody-seemed-to-care/

“I’m still enjoying what I’m doing, there’s still work to be done,” Holder told the Tom Joyner radio program in 2013. “I’m still the President’s wing-man, so I’m there with my boy.”

Thought so.

I don't remember Obama being investigated for possible obstruction of justice.

Fast and Fuious...wait....oh, Holder took care of that, so we won’t know....

Anyway, if you're always equating Trump with Obama and "the left", why are you such a Trump fan?

No, I’m just calling ou liberal hypocrisy as usual. Why am I a fan? Because he is going against establishment and installation and is trying so desperately to clean itself to the intestinal wall like some parasite in refuses to be removed. Also I like him because he is not your traditional politician and he doesn’t care about being politically correct and he doesn’t care or shut away from seeing his opinion regardless of the consequences or to whom.

A very small number of scholars believe this. Most constitutional law experts do not (they must be deep state leftists! /s). In any case, Trump is not concerned with justice or constitutionality.

Uh-huh....lol! Even liberal Hillary supporter law professor and one of THE most recognized, knowledgeable and credible lawyer in the country this is a total witch hunt. Turley who’s political affiliation is not really well known and libertarian Judge Napolitano, they all call BS on this and more so with each passing day. The people that don’t care about the constitution are the people that still whine and can’t get over this election like Adam Spliff, Maxine Waters, waffling Chuck Schumer and the rest of the progressive thuggery tactics they try use while their lap dog Republican servants Mueller and the rest of the intelligence agency mafia are trying everything to usurp a duly elected president from office and are trying to do it by any means necessary.

And in so doing you're admitting that there's no difference between Trump and Obama. You're saying both obstructed justice.

But its a false equivalence. Obama did not obstruct justice. Trump is.

Thanks for the Daily Caller link. That's what I call a "real" news source (especially loved the now-deleted articles by white supremacist Jason Kessler -- classy! ). BTW, your Holder quote in no way insinuates that Holder was putting loyalty to Obama over the workings of justice. Trump on the other hand is clear that he wants Sessions out because he's not stopping Mueller's investigation. That's obstruction of justice in plain view. So again, false equivalence.

Even liberal Hillary supporter law professor and one of THE most recognized, knowledgeable and credible lawyer in the country this is a total witch hunt.

Liberal Hillary supporter law professor says this? Then it must REALLY be a total witch hunt. You got me there.

So what branch of the government is the justice Department in? And who has constitutional authority as the head of that branch of government?

libertarian Judge Napolitano, they all call BS on this and more so with each passing day.

From Wikipedia:

According to New York Times, Napolitano "has a taste for conspiracy theories".[20] The Washington Post has described him as a "purveyor of conspiracy theories."[21] Napolitano has promoted 9/11 conspiracy theories. In 2010, he said, "it’s hard for me to believe that it came down by itself... I am gratified to see that people across the board are interested. I think twenty years from now, people will look at 9-11 the way we look at the assassination of JFK today. It couldn’t possibly have been done the way the government told us.”[22][23]

9/11 truthers are not credible. He is a madman with fringe beliefs.

The people that don’t care about the constitution are the people that still whine and can’t get over this election like Adam Spliff

You've referred to this "Adam Spliff" multiple times, but no such person exists. Could you let us know to whom you are referring, if this is a nickname?

8 ( +10 / -2 )

And in so doing you're admitting that there's no difference between Trump and Obama. You're saying both obstructed justice.

Yes.

But its a false equivalence. Obama did not obstruct justice. Trump is.

Well, he had Holder to back him, but let’s focus for a moment, you think the left is not making themselves sick by putting every egg in the basket? So far they’ve been wrong on every level from 2010 and on, you would think the left would learn by now...sadly.

Thanks for the Daily Caller link. That's what I call a "real" news source (especially loved the now-deleted articles by white supremacist Jason Kessler -- classy! ).

Oh, here we go, I keep forgetting, if it’s not a far left site, we have to discredit it, because it doesn’t pass the progressive smell test. Sorry, not going to work, “Salon” ranked one of the worst unreliable liberal sites alleges the accusations, once again you guys use the race card. Typical, but always nice try.

BTW, your Holder quote in no way insinuates that Holder was putting loyalty to Obama over the workings of justice.

Everyone they were two peas in a pod and the only attorney generals to be held in contempt, sorry try again.

Trump on the other hand is clear that he wants Sessions out because he's not stopping Mueller's investigation. That's obstruction of justice in plain view. So again, false equivalence.

Again every president in history has had an attorney general that had their back except for this president and if you want to make the argument that he shouldn’t fire sessions all Republicans a year ago would have agreed with you, now they don’t, they all think it’s time he must go and they all see how this man is just a zombie and won’t do anything even fought with Nunes to not wanting to turn over key documents and this witch investigations needs to come to quick conclusion and the President has the green light to rid himself of this man.

-12 ( +2 / -14 )

So what branch of the government is the justice Department in?

The executive branch.

And who has constitutional authority as the head of that branch of government?

The President.

No-one disputes these facts. But it is also a fact that firing the AG to get someone else more supine to end an investigation into potential crimes which may involve the President could also constitute obstruction of justice.

To make an example from the private sector, a boss has the right to fire an employee. But if they are found to have done so because the employee was a whistle-blower who was reporting criminal activities, this firing is illegitimate.

I hope this has been helpful.

@Bass4Funk

2 significant figureheads in DC recently have positional adjustment regarding for support of Trumps canning of Sessions (high probability after the mid-terms). Chuck Grassley, the Judiciary Chairman as well as surprisingly turning 180 stance none other than McCain's BFF, Lindsey Graham.

Senator Grassley is a key figure surrounding the entire chain of events as well as overseeing confirmation FBI and DOJ processes. I would favor Mike Rogers (former NSA Director) to be the new FBI Director, Rand Paul as the new DNI and DiGenova as Sessions replacement. Very high probability this line up would get results fast.

I get your point, but none of these guys and their alleged crimes have anything to do with Trump. So what is your point?

Uh, you get my point, but you don't get my point? And these guys have nothing to do with Trump? Come on, I know you're not that dumb...

Duke supported every GOP President, even McCain, you back in 2008 when every liberal called him a racist.

David Duke, on his radio program, Feb. 25, 2016: *“Voting for these people [Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz], voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage. I do support his candidacy, and I support voting for him as a strategic action. I hope he does everything we hope he will do.”*

the same people that are now worshipping the very ground he walked on since blasting Trump.*

I haven't the faintest idea what this means, but if you're saying Democrats and other liberals support David Duke I don't know what planet you're on - wait, yes I do Oranglandia....

@Silvafan: The company Fusion was hired by the GOP group in October of 2015 in case anyone doubts who purchased the dossier first!

See this is a perfect example of how the Left has run off the deep end to deflect from the Dems collusion with Russia. The GOP’s work with Fusion only involved domestic research and predated the dossier. Thanks to Nunes the public was made aware that Hillary hired Fusion through a cutout law firm in order to avoid reporting their use on campaign finance reports. Hillary’s money paid for Christopher Steele and for the money he gave to Russian intelligence agents for hearsay “evidence” of collusion. Their is only one version of the truth but Dems are so tied to the Trump Russia collusion narrative they refuse to believe it.

"Hahahahahahahahaha!

Especially this part:

"Sessions, in a rare rebuttal, responded that he took control of the department the day he became attorney general"

It's very telling of Trumpers when they admit that following the law does damage to their agenda. Well done.

Trump is nothing but a coward committing treason, and as a dictator does to put. He's demanding he get the results he wants -- which are to find him innocent -- or he will step in and take the law further into his own hands. That's fascism, and you guys WANT it to happen, and are even cheerleaders for it. You are not patriots, you're the opposite.

Trump has every right to get rid of Sessions, but now since the GOP have had more than enough time to see that he’s basically useless, they all slowly came to the agreement that Trump is right, so I don’t expect Sessions to resign, then expect Trump to fire him after the midterms.

Trump is nothing but a coward committing treason, and as a dictator does to put.

I think the left really don’t understand the true definition of what treason or dictator is.

I think the President has been patient long enough, doesn’t matter what the left thinks or says, he’s the President and he has the right to have the cabinet he wants and an AG that he’s comfortable with. All the other Presidents had a loyal AG and this President shouldn’t be an exception.

The choice for Trump fans is fast approaching: Donald Trump or the US Constitution.

What choice will you make?

11 ( +13 / -2 )

What choice will you make?

Always the Constitution. Therefore the illegal attempt to overthrow a legitimately elected president must be thwarted and the corruption in the DOJ/FBI eliminated.

The Left must decide if their hatred of Trump outweighs their patriotism and the belief in the rule of law. Given their unhinged actions thus far they have clearly chosen hate over country.

-11 ( +2 / -13 )

Trump has every right to get rid of Sessions

He does, but he is not immune to consequences, just as he wasn't when he fired Comey. Those consequences could be mild, they could be bad but survivable, or they could ultimately result in his removal from office. Trump sure as hell doesn't know which of those it's going to be, and nor do his considerably more canny advisers.

Attacking Sessions on Twitter is far safer and probably quite cathartic - he doesn't even have to take the burger out of his mouth.

We can ignore your partisan bias, but not your attempt to tailor law to your liking. Trump is fortunate only in that he has a lackey Senate which will fail to convict the next House's impending impeachment - probably. That is the law based on the Constitution. One may not choose based on political preference. And since when has the right become anti law and order?

How much damage can 30% of the population do?

Not nearly as much as Silicone Valley and Hollywood could.

Yes, liberals are never bias. LOL

but not your attempt to tailor law to your liking.

No, you did NOT just say that!

You know it’s hilarious how the left try with all their feeeble and laughable attempt to persuade and pawn themselves as the party of virtue of dignity and honesty and followers of the constitution when over the last eight years the anointed one used every executive order to bypass congress because he knew every radical legislation he was committed to was so toxic Congress wasn’t going to pass none of it, unwilling to work with the GOP on almost anything unless it was his way and now with this President they do it again, if they can’t get what they want, they’ll try to throw banana peels at every turn to thwart this President and for once I’m glad that this man fights back. Sure, he often says things that make you roll your eyes, but overall, he won’t back down, won’t turn around and even if the walls keep crumbling down, he’ll stand his ground.

Well people who align themselves with a proven scammer and known liar shouldn't be pointing fingers.

bass4funk: "I think the left really don’t understand the true definition of what treason or dictator is."

No, you don't, since you follow your claim with "Trump has been waiting long enough to get what he wants... he can do what he wants," despite others pointing out the illegalities of such actions. That's the very definition of dictator. But hey, you call filling the "swamp" beyond capacity "draining it", say "it makes sense to put in such people" after calls to drain it (and still saying it's being drained), and have said "no one ever spoke badly of McCain the war hero" while praising Trump's statement that "heroes don't get caught", etc., so we know you won't see the forest for the trees ever.

And you know someone is panicking, backpedalling, and just flat out wrong when they have a run-on sentence of more than 100 words, full of adjectives and returning to the old "anointed one" deflections again. Just surprised you didn't have 20 LOLs in there.

"Sure, he often says things that make you roll your eyes, but overall, he won’t back down,"

'Not back down' is the new euphemism for treasonous threats and promises of violence. I love how you guys can't address even the fact that Trump dodged the draft five times while claiming he's such a tough guy who 'won't back down'. He's a coward, and you know it. If not, address his draft dodging. Don't avoid it, talk about it and how it does not make him a coward, and a man who doesn't even know the colors of the flag for that matter! And all the while you belittle an actual combat veteran!

In bygone days, a foul-mouthed, prostitute using, woman hating, dictator loving, fascist liar would have been thrown in jail as a traitor to America. Now, one is admired by Nazi and Fundamentalist alike. What’s the matter with the world? Is it the heat?

This orange hued man baby is clearly out of touch with even the mere concept of reality and must actually be convinced that he is the most important person in the world and should be exempt from rules and laws.

@Super: So Wolf is choosing Trump. 

Ah, that’s not what I wrote. I support the Constitution and the free and fair elections that brought Trump the presidency. He wasn’t my choice for the job but we are stuck with him until at least January 2021.

I do not support Hillary’s paid Russians and her foreign British stooge usurping the will of the voters of the 50 states. Trump isn’t my cup of tea but you can’t just get rid of him because you lost. If the Dems are successful in undermining him then I will support undermining the next Dem president.

Super if you want to overthrow the American government I’m not with you, I’m with the Constitution. If the Left succeeds, a backlash will arrive and the Left will regret the damage they created.

More evidence for that obstruction of justice indictment that's in the works. Keep flapping those gums, Donnie, you're gonna talk yourself straight into a cell.

investigating a notoriously sleazy president for obstruction of justice and other crimes = overthrowing the American government

Yessiree.

No surprise there. Republicans already did that when Obama was president.

I can see Trump's smoke and mirrors is truly effective. Only a handful of people know what he is really up to! And they are scrambling to stay out of jail.

I love Trump. The absolute best president. Especially knowing everyone on the comments hate him. Just shows you all what a Trump lover in Japan has to deal with.

The Constitution doesn't mandate the winner take all Electoral College procedures that disregard the will of California Republicans and Texas Democrats.

Super if you want to overthrow the American government I’m not with you, I’m with the Constitution. If the Left succeeds, a backlash will arrive and the Left will regret the damage they created.

Are you deliberately simplifying this to the point that it's misleading? The only way for... "the left" to overthrow the American government, or rather the current head of its Executive Branch, is to take control of the Legislative Branch through free and fair Congressional Elections and then have the Senate depose him in a democratic vote, as stipulated by the Constitution. Isn't that right? So it looks as if you can be for overthrowing the President and for the Constitution at the same time.

Apparently. Amazing isn’t it?

Said it before, impeachment isn’t a good idea. Far better to take back the House and get subpoena power and investigate the heck out of the presidency. Fodder until the next elections. Clearly many, especially Democrat leadership realize this. Also why it’s a more useful talking point for Trump supporters in whipping up the base;

In other words, he intends to try to prevent the Justice Dept. and the FBI from doing their jobs.

A guilty criminal uses the power available to avoid prosecution. This is not a novel approach.

The DOJ and FBI are doing their jobs, but not fast enough. This cretin doesn't know how to shut up, does he?

Smith, you're right in saying that Trump is a coward and five times draft dodger.

However, Trump would probably defend himself by saying he's not the one to blame for his actions.

His grandfather was a coward who ran away to America to avoid three years of compulsory military service in his native Germany.

Trump has often credited the Excellent or Superior Genes, he inherited from his ancestors, for everything that has led to him becoming what he is today.

So, perhaps his cowardice, and repeated draft dodging, stem from a congenital condition over which he has no control.
