Its no secret that Attorney General Jeff Sessions days as Attorney General are numbered. The main questions are: (1) How will his exit be handled and (2) Who will replace him.
I have no insight as to the second question. One hears names like Matthew Whitaker (a former U.S. Attorney and University of Iowa football player who currently is Sessions chief of staff); Alex Azar, the Secretary of HHS (and not to confused with Alex Acosta); and Rep. John Ratcliffe (another former U.S. Attorney). However, I have no idea whether or to what degree these three (and others) are under consideration.
For me, a major concern is whether the new Attorney General will back leniency for drug felons legislation, something Sessions has vigorously opposed. I dont know the answer to that question, either.
As for the first question, I believe the Sessions exit will be handled badly and without class. According to this report by the AP, some of Sessions influential conservative supporters are asking the White House to allow for a graceful exit. What does that mean?
A scenario advocated by at least one Sessions ally, former Cincinnati Mayor Ken Blackwell, would allow him to remain on the job until January and be permitted to resign on his own then rather than be fired immediately after the midterms. Blackwell said allies have made their case to administration officials that Sessions has successfully pushed the presidents core priorities, including on illegal immigration, and deserves some sort of recognition from the White House that he has more than a passing grade....
POTUS TRUMP,But we had some real bad ones you see whats happened at the FBI, theyre all gone, theyre all gone, theyre all gone. But theres a lingering stench and were going to get rid of that, too.
YUP, he means Sessions and Rosenstein.
So, the end is nigh for all the Q-tips.
Try as he might, Trump will still not get the consigliere he so desires.
Well, Hillary did have all those leftover fireworks...
“HOW WILL TRUMP HANDLE SESSIONS DEPARTURE?”
Like the rest of us...a collective sigh of relief.

You’ve got to be kidding? Maybe Pirro, but not Laura!
How ever it’s decided to do it, I hope Session isn’t the USAG for one more day than absolutely necessary. The man hasn’t showed me much.

By tweet hopefully: “Today I fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions because he accepted the position knowing full well that on his 3rd day he would recuse himself. It’s like he was never here.”
I would suggest throwing a yuge party and inviting the sane half of the country.
I think Lindsay has been auditioning for the part.
If Ted Cruz loses the Texas race he has a job.... However, I would like to see a mean nasty prick that takes no hostages get the job... Chris Christy?
