The Jeff Sessions Story Part II

June 7, 2017

If you keep up with politics, you’ve probably heard the story about Attorney General Jeff Sessions offering to resign if President Trump is upset with him over the DOJ's legal defense of his temporary ban on immigration from six terrorism-plagued nations (I know that description’s not as pithy as saying “Muslim ban,” but it has the slight advantage of being accurate.) So why didn’t I comment on it sooner?

Well, let’s see: Comes from an unnamed source. It could only be known for sure by Sessions and Trump themselves, neither of whom would leak it to ABC. And the major corroborating evidence for the unsourced story is that when pressed by reporters on whether Trump has full confidence in Sessions, spokesman Sean Spicer wouldn’t comment. Pressed harder, he said he hadn’t spoken to Trump about it, and he tends not to comment on things when he hasn’t talked to the source. I guess that means he can give up any hopes of ever becoming a political journalist after he leaves the White House.

    Maybe Trump was just trying to get sessions off his behind.

    I just must say if the President is going fire Jeff Sessions I wish he would just do it & go on with the things that need to get done! Tax Reform , Tax Reform & lets not forget Tax Reform.

    I would give AG Jeff Sessions a second chance, it seems he is investigating the leaks at this time. I know our President is frustrated and rightfully so. He does not deserve to be treated this way by the media. It seems they are ready to criticize every move he makes. President Trump has done more for our country in 6 months, then the previous administration did in eight years. Please tell him I am praying for him every day and wishing good thoughts for much success going forward.
