Trump to decide Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s fate ‘soon’

The White House says it will reach a decision “soon” on US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has been publicly humiliated by President Donald Trump.

In a Twitter onslaught, Mr Trump called the country’s top prosecutor “weak”, a day after labelling him “beleaguered”.

Mr Trump has said he is unhappy with Mr Sessions for recusing himself from an FBI inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Mr Sessions said last week he intended to stay in his post.

    Sessions is your pre-eminent GOP beta male who pre-preemptively surrendered to the Democratic deep state the second he took the job. You can tell he was the wrong person for the job from the very beginning by all the beta-cuck adulation for his appointment from all the #NeverTrump losers.

    It’s time to put in a fighter like Giuliani who will give the American people what they voted for and put that crooked Hillarybitch in jail.

      That’s the impression I get. Congress Critters aren’t the world’s most dynamic achievers. Glenn Reynolds wants him gone because he has refused to do anything about asset seizure laws.

      I suspect he had indeed surrendered to them well before his appointment with the plan being forcing the president to fire them and then attempt to use that as another excuse to force Trump out. The whole thing smacks of a set-up from the start.

    New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin, a Trump supporter, explains why it is in Trump’s interests to let Sessions go.

    Many sovereignty defenders voted for Trump because he seemed strong on immigration enforcement. With the trusted Sessions gone, many will doubt Trump’s sincerity on the issue.

    After all, Trump promised to end the DACA amnesty immediately, and it still exists. Plus there has been no push for universal e-Verify, the most effective form of illegal alien rejection.
