AG Jeff Sessions just resigned at Trump’s request

November 7 at 2:47 PM

Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned on Wednesday at President Trump’s request, ending the tenure of a loyalist he soured on shortly after Sessions took office in 2017 because the former senator from Alabama had recused himself from oversight of the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Despite the tension with the White House, Sessions had described the position of top law enforcement officer as his dream job and he pursued his conservative agenda with gusto. But he also had to live with sometimes humiliating attacks from a president he couldn’t seem to please and the suspicions of career staff members who feared the politicization of a Justice Department that prides itself on its independence.

Department veterans have expressed concerns that Trump’s repeated public attacks on Sessions, the Justice Department and the FBI could cause lasting damage to federal law enforcement.

Sessions, 71, was the first U.S. senator to endorse Trump, and in many ways he had been the biggest supporter of the president’s policies on immigration, crime and law enforcement.

Rod Rosenstein is no longer overseeing the Mueller investigation. Matthew Whitaker is. Rachel Maddow had a segment a few weeks ago about some secret document uncovered that gives Whitaker a waiver with regards to Mueller investigation

The Mueller team needs to back up all their data RIGHT NOW!  There is likely to be an FBI raid on their offices and seize everything they got.

Trump is obviously scared to death and there are few things more dangerous than a megalomaniac who gets slapped upside the head the way Trump has been.  This is bigger than the Saturday Night Massacre and the rule of law is hanging in the balance.

You know he has, plus it would take him 30 seconds to ask a grand jury to sign these bills of indictments...

Someone on Twitter pointed out that Sessions' resignation letter was not dated.  Wonder how long Trump's been holding it?

Who knows, he no doubt released it to distract from the huge shit kicking he got last night and the deranged presser he just gave.

Or to not allow the people of the USA to have a day of normalcy. A day to breathe, rest, relax...
