    Default Jeff Sessions resigns!

    He waited until after the election. Wow!

    Instead he was fired!

    no wonder why Trump was pumped and loony at press conferences.
    Be wary of your critics, at peace with your decisions, and work hard to be a better man.

    And the mayhem will continue.

    I listened to a 'press conference'. Donald does not like having his power truncated in any way does he? I wonder now, seeing he has the habit, he will continue to rule by decree? If he couldn't get legislation through the house before what chance now.

    Effectively, was fired. Trump asked for the resignation. Who will be appointed in his stead, and will Trump wait to appoint someone until the new Congress is seated, so that he has no question about confirmations?

    Trump is terrified. He knows how much he has to keep hidden, and he's scared sh!tless he won't be able to anymore.

    He was a total pr!ck to Jim Acosta in the press conference. A surprisingly bigly toadstool, considering.

    Sessions resigned at the request of Trump. So the choice was resign or be fired.

    Don't know who but, I bet it's someone Trump can roll all over. Look, No session, Trump's new appointee, Rosenstein's job is hanging by a thread because the newbie will fire him.

    Then, on to Mueller!

    Should have been fired, rather than accede to the demand for his resignation. The evil elf has no gonads.

    So now Trump has passed over the Deputy Attorney General -- the normal person to fill in -- to appoint Session's Chief of Staff Matt Whitaker as the interim AG. Whitaker is established as a someone hostile to the Mueller investigation.

    So a man under investigation has hand-picked the person to oversee the investigation.

    Trump with Whitaker just took control over muller investigation. Senate won’t stop him.

    Think about the position he left to serve that adolescent narcissist. He lost a lot.

    Time for Mueller to arrange a leak. Before his work gets buried.

    I'd be very surprised if Mueller hasn't been backing up all his findings in multiple secure places, and if he's dismissed, that will all leak out. A "dead mans drop" so to speak.

    Graham is a loser; interesting he's linked his fortunes to tRump.

    I don't know how this plays out - can tRump fire Mueller, over objections of the Democrat House? Any chance Mueller could circumvent that, perhaps by an 'early release'? JS has mentioned several times Mueller should subpoena tRump pre-emptively; does that work?
    There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....

    There is a tactical difference between a resignation and a firing. If there's a resignation Trump can replace him with someone who's been previously confirmed by the Senate, until a permanent person is confirmed. If he's fired the seat has to stay open until confirmation.

    The good news just keeps rolling along! Trump continues to hold the headlines. The new AG will be hunting Democrats.

    Mueller is a Republican but, you should know that! Oh wait, how could you? And the new AG probably will have a long tongue to get into the crevasses on Trump's black boots.

    How is it possible someone like you can support Trump, that absolute disaster of an excuse for a human being? What have you sold that allows you to do that? You can’t possibly think he is good for the country.

    Did you watch what happened last night? What kind of a bubble are you living in? Tens of millions of Americans support Trump and the Republicans.

    It's their country too. Isn't it?

    Would you please write an explanation of that and float if off in a bottle, in the hope that those stranded on an ideological island might someday get the message?

    That SB thinks the Justice Department is supposed to be the personal police of Mr Trump, and root out his political enemies. Like, you know, the NKVD, or Franco's Guardia Civil, or the Red Guards, although perhaps with a bit more finesse. Or perhaps not. Rule of law? HAH! Le Roi le veult!

    It is high time that an investigation into the Mueller probe be commenced, looking first to relevant conflicts of interest, probe expenditures, leaks, and the conduct of plea negotiations. Additional probes of the conduct of the FBI in the months leading up to the 2016 election should be commenced.

    Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein and Strzok should get their measurements taken for their new wardrobe. Orange is looking good this season.
