While listening to bestselling author and FOX News analyst Gregg Jarrett host the Hannity radio show Thursday afternoon, I happened to hear him say something stunning about Jeff Sessions.
Of course, we’ve all been wondering how big a crowbar it was going to take to get Sessions out of the Attorney General’s office and if Trump’s lawyers were going to try to use physical restraint to keep him from using it, but, according to Jarrett, Sessions gave Trump a signed resignation letter in May of last year, with the understanding that Trump might or might not accept it at some point. There was no time limit on it. If I understood Jarrett correctly, this is something Trump has kept on hand –- perhaps it’s in his top desk drawer in the Oval Office at this very moment –- and he can pull it out whenever he thinks it’s a good time and simply accept.
This close to the midterm elections, accepting Sessions’ resignation would no doubt be met with politically-motivated outrage and be considered too distracting from important campaign issues, but...maybe afterwards? ONE NANOSECOND afterwards??
Then he could appoint someone who will do what Sessions can’t or won’t do: among other things, reopen the Hillary case and focus on her destruction of subpoenaed documents, investigate the origins of the Steele “dossier” (paid for by Hillary and the DNC) and the Trump/Russia probe, and produce documents that are responsive to years-old congressional committee subpoenas and Freedom of Information Act requests.
Well, I checked, and sure enough, I heard Jarrett right. He talks about Sessions’ resignation letter in this piece for FOX News.
