    The speculation is that Trump wants to fire Jeff Sessions so that Trump can appoint a new AG that can fire Muller and then issue a mandate to the new AG to shut down all FBI investigations related to Trump.

    That would be a stretch doing that, but, Trump is just about crazy enough to do it. His new appointee/s would need to be ah hem, loyal to him, like being an imperial leader. I can see it happening. MSM and democrats would be pulling their hair out too.

    He may try, but that would send a cataclysmic shock wave around Washington that Donald is most certainty not prepared for. That's why I think he's trying to get Sessions to quit instead of firing him.

    I'm also not sure that Sessions quitting will have the effect that Donald wants. There are multiple Republican Senators who have grown increasingly frustrated with Donald and could make it very difficult for him if our idiot-in-chief tries to replace Sessions with one of his patsies.

    Senate Republicans are the reason much of Donald's crazy ass agenda hasn't been enacted into law. I only hope they will step up to the plate and do the same if he forces an AG that I loathe more than the devil himself out.

    I read that Rudy G. could be that next pasty. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse.

    Beauregard aka Granny (Beverly Hillbillies) is a joke as an AG.

    If you are hoping the Republican leadership will all of a sudden get their priorities in order , you are wasting your time and kidding yourself. They are all guilty of treason and they are not going to change their loyalty to the American people now or ever. No republican gives a shut about America the idea . If they did , they would not be Republicans. God knows what mental disease causes people to be a republican but there is no cure.

    America the idea , is dead. Americans have no respect for America the idea. They are ignorant to the idea. They don't understand it. And there is no way to make them understand. Look at the men in America. Proud to be a red neck ignoramous , proud to be a fat tattooed beer swilling idiot the women are just the same. Proud to be ignorant. America has been undermined by it's sloth and it's consumerism . Now we only have fake everything. And the planet is dying because of it too. And no one cares.

    Yes, "Main", I've said it so many time that the mentality here is getting worse by the day; no wonder that the opioid and drug abuse is hitting new highs, because plenty of people can't cope with these times.

    Sessions is a joke but the Mango Mussolini is stuck with him for now. Trump's choices are very much limited. He is discovering that being president is nothing like being the boss of a family business. He may well become the first first term lame-duck the country has ever seen.

    Trump referred to Sessions as: "our beleaguered AG". And Trump is the beleaguerer. He constantly plays the role as champion of the working class. He is the most duplicitous person period.

    It's tough being appointed to a job and finding out the new boss is nothing more than an asswipe. I hope he stays, just to be Trumps pain in the rearItess.

    If Trump is going to fire Jeff Sessions he will do during the up coming Senate recess. He will do it then so that the Senate can't vote on the firing. Trump has been advised that the Sensate will vote to keep Sessions as AG, so the only way to get rid of Sessions is to do it during a recess.

    Also, a lot of other shit may happen during the recess for the exact same reason, so that congrewss can't stop him from doing some pretty cut throat shit ("I'm president, so FU").

    Anyone remember how Godfather ends, where Micheal Corleone has the heads of the 5 families assassinated all at same same time. It was cut throat move to eliminate all his competition at once.... I personally won't be surprised if Trump made a huge move like that, where he fires a lot of people, signs some (unlawfull) executive orders, over the course of one weekend when congress is recess and can't do anything to stop him. It would be akin to creating a massive forrest fire will take congress months to put out.

    Trump's furor at Sessions begs the question why? The obvious answer is Trump is guilty of collusion and he wanted a yes man in charge. Thoughts???

    There is at least two answers to the question. The simple answer comes down trust, and Trump does not trust anyone who is not loyal to Trump as their #1 priority. This means being loyal to Trump over country. This means willing to do things that put their career at risk by crossing legal and\or ethical boundaries. My speculation is that Trump has tested Sessions by giving him orders that Sessions either refused, or failed.

    The more complex answer is what Trump is afraid of, and how Sessions is in the way. There is no longer any doubt that Trump wants Sessions gone, it just has not happened yet. Whatever Trump wants done, Session no longer is a help to him. Trump may have a new AG lined up, someone who will be the legal "hit man" trump is looking for. Trump wants an AG that enjoys legally fucking people over (Sadistic personality). Someone who is feared and willing go out of bounds to get the job done. Someone who thinks "if the American people need to pay the price for Trump to be successful, then so be it."
