Donald Trump prepares to fire Attorney General Sessions

Only Donald Trump could make you feel sorry for Sean Spicer and Jeff Sessions in the same week.

Trump is preparing to fire the Attorney General, in an effort to get the Justice Department to stop investigating Russia and start investigation Hillary Clinton.

You and I must stop him.

In today’s video blog, below, I tell you how, starting with a pledge to turn out in the streets if Trump fires FBI special counsel Mueller, who is leading the Russia investigation. Watch the video below, share it, subscribe to my YouTube channel, then add your name to those promising to take the streets.

    Putin was too busy profiting from our heroic State Dept giving the access to our uranium supplies. LUCKY that he gave $$$ to the Clinton Foundation.

    Very bad idea to stand in the way of firing Sessions. Sessions’ departure would be immensely positive. Look at his latest proclamation vis-a-vis LGBT and emloyment. Sessions is an unmitigated horror, and, more effective than most of Trump’s administration, he is hurting people terribly. See the below Guardian article.
    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jul/26/donald-trump-jeff-sessions-firing-attorney-general “Strangely, many Democrats seem to be worried that Trump will actually pull the trigger, when they should be welcoming this development with open arms. Sessions leaving the justice department would be a gift to the American public on multiple levels…. viewing Sessions solely through the lens of the Russia investigation is an insult to the countless Americans who will suffer under Sessions’ extremist reign as attorney general.
    Think about all the abhorrent policies Sessions has already put into motion in his five short months at the helm. He has provided legal backing for Trump’s extreme immigrations policies. He has argued that authorities can keep grandparents apart from their family when enforcing Trump’s controversial travel ban. He is laying the groundwork to crack down on the millions of people who use recreational marijuana in states where it is now legal. He has planned a crackdown on leakers and whistleblowers, while also refusing to rule out prosecuting news organizations directly for doing their job.
    “He plans on essentially dismantling the vital civil rights division at the justice department and giving local police officers a free hand to continue to discriminate against African Americans. He wants to reverse the Obama-era policy on mandatory minimum sentences and press for still longer terms, whose impact is so extreme they are rightly seen as racist. Sessions has rejected scientific findings about improving the forensic evidence process that has led to countless innocent people being thrown in prison. The list goes on.
    “Sessions is exerting more power over millions of Americans than any other Trump cabinet member and is an unmitigated disaster for civil rights, civil liberties and criminal justice reform. If Trump wants to fire him, then good!

    “Sessions leaving office leads to the best of all worlds: a uniquely horrible Trump cabinet official who is making life miserable for millions of Americans is gone; it will be incredibly tough for Trump to get a new attorney general confirmed; he won’t be able to make a recess appointment; and it might further the obstruction of justice case against him.
    “Far from warning Trump, Democrats should be trying to goad him into firing Sessions.”

    Shifting my worries to the upcoming elections with the GOP suppressing the vote, the lack of paper ballots in many states and the possibility of continued Russian interference.

  • HematitePersuasion

    Mr. Sessions took a position with our current President, in full knowledge of that man’s sanctimonious duplicity. He knew who would be in judgement of his actions. The President’s lack of integrity and character were evident from the beginning (and Mr. Sessions is hardly a stranger to those qualities himself).

    In other words, while I may feel sympathy (I don’t, but I might, I suppose, in slightly different circumstances), someone who knowingly and willingly sticks his hand into a steaming pile of feces should expect to get his hand dirty.

  • MoonDragon

    He’s doing everything (except two – protect Trump and hound Hillary which Trump actually said he was not going to do) that Trump hired him to do. He’s done just about everything (except build the wall, which he can’t do and go after Hillary) that the base wanted. It’s like hiring a hit man and then turning him in for the reward. The hit man is scum, but you’ve treated him unfairly.

  • HematitePersuasion

    Feeling sorry for Mr. Spicer? Why? Are you under the impression he didn’t know the President was an amoral and fickle authoritarian? How could he not have known? On what grounds can one feel sorry for any of these persons, tripping over one another in their haste to dishonor and befoul our government and republic?

    I reserve my sympathy for their victims.

  • HematitePersuasion

    Precisely how is Mr. Sessions being treated unfairly? The President shows the same poor judgement in both cases.

  • MoonDragon

    Good people can feel sorry for anyone who’s being treated unfairly, even if it is part of Karma.

    Repeating my FB comment, Jeff
    Sessions has proposed and enacted policies near and dear to the Trump
    base: sentencing to the max on all infractions, strict enforcement of
    laws against marijuana, pursuit of all undocumented immigrants – even
    those who’ve lived in the US for years without any problems with the law
    -, and a roll back of civil rights enforcement. He was the first major
    political figure – a sitting senator – to endorse Donald Trump. None of
    this, in Donald Trump’s mind, demonstrates a loyalty on Sessions’ part
    worthy of reciprocity. It was more important, in Trump’s mind, that
    Sessions chose to recuse himself from anything dealing with the
    investigation into potential Russian collusion with the Trump campaign
    in the 2016 election, effectively meaning he could not be a buffer
    between Trump and investigations. His early support was unimportant and
    did not merit loyalty in return. Trump’s loyalty, in other words, are
    based on a quid pro quo relationship. If you haven’t got anything
    tangible to offer him, he owes you nothing. Loyalty to the country is
    less important to Trump than loyalty to Trump. Protecting Trump from
    investigation is more important than supporting the priorities of the
    base.

    Cognitive dissonance is tough for both of us!

  • I’m just having a hard time dealing with feeling sorry for first Spicer and now Sessions :)

  • Demosthenes

    I’m of 2 minds. On the one hand, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III (R-Confederacy) as a terrible person and a historically awful attorney general. On the other hand, Trump is a corrupt, treasonous, lying, incompetent crook. Fighting the firing of Sessions, which is just the first step towards Trump getting rid of Mueller and shutting down the treason investigation, seems to be pointless. Why not fight to get rid of Trump?

  • Badgerite

    Very good assessment of the situation. It is like having Putin in the Oval Office. No one was exaggerating when they talked about the high stakes of this election.
