If Sessions doesn’t piss or get off the pot by January, and Trump hasn’t fired him yet, it will affect how I see Trump.
We expected a no nonsense administration. Clinton and company have committed very questionable acts, and nothing is being done.
We had this problem with Bush, and I didn’t take it then. I’m not going to give Trump a different set of rules to play by.
While the Left takes his former employees down at will, we do nothing to start taking them down.
Enough is enough!
I’ll be more than happy to eat crow at some later date, but I’m not going to remain silent forever on this sort of thing.
Screw the Leftist press.
They get nothin.
If Trump is impeached, you’ll see me in Washington protesting. I’d imagine 20 million others will be joining me.
Yeah, Id say if that vaunted Plan has some offense in it, this wouldnt be a terrible time to run some of those plays.
I agree. At some point we have to put up or shut up.
I’ve been patient for at least 23-26 years. My patience is hanging by a thread.
Yeah, Trump needs to fire them because freepers know more about whether those two are doing what he wants than he does.
I’m not saying I know more than he does.
Nor do I think I’m smarter than he is.
But having such an utterly useless, feckless, weak Attorney General is hurting our country. THAT much is inarguable, and I can see NO benefit in keeping such a person in the job. If Congress is going to throw a little hissy fit if he fires him - too bad. Trump does not have to follow the dictates of those corrupt losers - particularly when they’re not helping him with his agenda ANYWAY.
You missed! Manafort was cleared when this was first discovered. It's an old case. I am rooting for Manafort because it further discredits Mueller. Mueller is corrupt and is corrupting the legal system and our Republic on this which hunt (With the help of others). I want Mueller to look like the thuggy, corrupt, malcontent baffoon that he is. If Manafort being non guilty helps that, COUNT ME IN!
Trump knows whether or not Sessions is doing what he wants done. We don’t. Trump has the sole unfettered authority to fire him at will- Congress doesn’t have any right to interfere. SCOTUS Myers v US, the power to fire executive branch officers is a President’s alone. And Trump has a wide number of options for filling the AG slot, including recess appointment, transferring one of the other 50 officials already approved by the Senate, and the options in the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998. He’s not at the mercy of Senate obstruction.
As time goes by, one of us is going to have been wrong about Sessions.
I hope it turns out to be me, because if it isn’t, this nation will have been seriously harmed by his malfeasance in office.
Someone is placing adds (at least had been) to hire on people to protest for the Left. Who was financing ANTIFA? Who was underwriting BLM? I these at least in part are Soros efforts. That might be a great place to start. Shut down his and his organization’s seditious activities. Put the SOB in prison.
There is so much low hanging fruit these days, it’s like walking through an apple orchard at harvest time and declaring you’re doing your duty taking a pass on ordering the hired hands to harvest it, as it rots on the tree.
You have to keep in mind who the audience is for this cat fight between Trump and Sessions. Trump and Sessions see each other weekly, whenever the Cabinet meets. They don’t have to take swipes at each other publicly, unless the target audience isn’t really each other. I think it’s all done for us and the press to hear.
If Trump is that unhappy with Sessions why hasn’t he asked him to resign? Or why hasn’t he fired him? There hasn’t been one Trump tweet or utterance actually asking Sessions to resign. There hasn’t been one Trump complaint that “I’d fire Sessions except....” There’s plenty of people putting those words in Trump’s mouth but he’s never said it even once.
I can’t argue with what you are saying.
The same outcome still applies.
If Sessions is biding his time and developing a network of cases to take down a massive part of the Left, then I’ll be happy to concede I was wrong.
If we are sitting here typing in 2023 and the Clintons are dead and the descendants of all the crooks who work for them are still plying their trade, our nation is over.
Keep in mind that we had never heard of Strzok, Page, Ohr or any of the rest of the conspirators before December 1, 2017. That’s less than 10 months ago. And that was less than 11 months into the Trump presidency.
Other than the burglars themselves, Watergate took awhile to ramp up. And in Watergate you weren’t chasing major CIA and FBI and DOJ assets who were using every resource of their agencies to cover their tracks... and who may still have allies inside those agencies helping them.
Just from Strzok-Page texts that we have seen it looks like Obama was directly involved in their conspiracy- the text says that Obama wanted to be kept informed. If this has lead to Obama criminally spying on Trump, and probably many others Democrats included, it’s not something that can be rushed.
Thanks, I’ve been away. I understand it could have been all 18 counts if not for one juror. Manafort will likely flip. Why be the last man to go to jail for Donald Trump when everyone else is cooperating and exposing Trump.
