    The Latest: Trump speaks to advisers about firing Sessions

    The Latest on President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions (all times local):

    9:40 p.m.

    President Donald Trump has spoken with advisers about firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

    Trump continues to rage against Sessions' decision to recuse himself from all matters related to the Russia investigation.

    The president's anger again bubbled into public view Monday as he referred to Sessions in a tweet as "beleaguered."

    Privately, Trump has speculated aloud to allies in recent days about the potential consequences of firing Sessions. That's according to three people who have recently spoken to the president and demanded anonymity to discuss private conversations.

    Trump often talks about making staff changes without following through, so those who have spoken with the president cautioned that a change may not be imminent or happen at all.



    At least he's thinkin' in the right direction.

    Could Lyin' Ted replace 'beleagured' Jeff? Trump is 'openly considering removing Attorney General Sessions and could replace him with former enemy Cruz'
    • The Texas senator is in the running despite being blasted by Trump as 'Lyin' Ted'
    • The president and Cruz were enemies during the Republican primary campaign
    • Trump said to be keen to fire Sessions, upset at his perceived lack of loyalty
    • Firing Sessions would help pave the way to sack Robert Mueller

    I agree with Trump "messing with Sessions" two reasons.
    1) Sessions went after weed before Hillary
    2) He's a republican party guy and Trump should use those people as a stepping stone no long term relationship. JMHO

    2 Possibilities here:

    Sessions is protecting the swamp, or

    Trump and Sessions are playing together behind the scenes and Trump is tweeting to give Sessions cover while he flips over very large and scary rocks.

    We shall see...................... :popcorn:

    Holder and Lynch protected Obama from all inquiries and investigations, while he and his lackeys pillaged the Treasury (Susan Rice is worth 50 m after "serving" 5 years under Obama) and made millions off of Russian deals. The witch hunt on Trump started long before inauguration - Session should have stood between Trump and the
    Swamp and protected him from the scam.

    I'm starting to believe this more and more about Trump. Could be he's trusting the wrong peeps and they are trying to use him to further their own agendas, goals and beliefs.

    Trump is mad because Jeff recused himself from the Russian investigation.
    Trump blames Jeff for not telling him before he got the job.
    Wasn't it the responsibility of the POTUS during vetting to have asked that question before Trump hired Jeff?
    "Hey Jeff , do you got my back?"...
    Jeff , "Heavens no Don. I can't trust you."
    "Why don't you trust me Jeff?"...
    "Because you think there is medical value in that evil weed!"....
    Or something like that.
    Whoever was in charge of vetting Jeff also needs to be fired.

    'Time will tell': Donald Trump leaves Jeff Sessions twisting in the wind after calling his attorney general 'weak' in a tweet storm and suggesting he wants to fire him
    • Donald Trump has been been publicly shaming his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions, for recusing himself from DOJ's Russia probe
    • Now claims Sessions has taken a 'VERY weak' position on Clinton's email server
    • He wouldn't say whether he plans to fire Sessions on Tuesday even though he was asked three times in a news conference and by the Wall Street Journal
    • 'We will see what happens,' Trump said. 'Time will tell. Time will tell'
    • His advisors have already floated names of possible replacements
    • Trump is putting pressure on DOJ to investigate Clinton and the Democratic Party for their actions prior to the election
    • Trump stepped back from his 'lock her up' pledge after he won the election
    • By removing Sessions, Trump could name a new acting attorney general who could shut down special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe
    • Incoming White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci hinted Tuesday that Trump could act: 'There's this level of tension in the relationship'

    When exactly?? I don't know a single conservative who's turned on Trump. Only the weak minded and stupid doesn't have this guy's back now. He's working in the background pulling all the levers and positioning the swamp for draining. Isn't that what he was elected to do?

    Ann Coulter is a goofy batshit female. She's on your side one minute criticizing you the next and tomorrow it starts all over again.
    Notice she's never been married? She must be beaucoup crazy to be rich and no man figured it was worth it to hang around.

    She used to date Spin Magazine founder, Bob Guccione Jr. while Sr. founded Penthouse in 1965. She is fun to listen to sometimes, but she looks kind of sleazy. There was also a rumor she was dating Jimmie "Dyn-o-mite" Walker.

    Senate defies Trump on call to investigate Hillary Clinton

    [​IMG]
    Tribune Washington Bureau
    By Lesley Clark and Matthew Schofield
    10 hrs ago


    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s relentless calls for more investigations into Hillary Clinton, her emails and the Democratic National Committee are largely being ignored in Congress, where Republicans spent years and millions of dollars on Clinton probes that turned up nothing.

    And Senate Republicans say Trump is wrong in prodding his attorney general via Twitter to revive an inquiry into the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee who lost the election to Trump.

    “It harkens back to the notion of a banana republic,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said of what he called Trump’s “inappropriate” calls for investigations into Clinton. “It’s what dictators do, they look to punish their enemies.”

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a Senate Intelligence Committee member, noted that Clinton’s missing emails as secretary of state were investigated by the FBI. As a result, he said, there appears to be no need to reopen the case.

    “As for me, I prefer to look to the future, not the past,” Rubio said of Trump’s tweets agitating for Clinton investigations. “It’s time to move on.”

    Congressional investigators are not completely dismissing allegations about the Democrats. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, raised questions Wednesday about Democrats and Republicans in a hearing on foreign meddling in U.S. elections.

    Grassley said he has asked the Department of Justice about Democratic National Committee officials allegedly working with Ukraine’s government to “undermine” Trump’s presidential campaign.

    “The law needs to be enforced consistently and evenhandedly,” Grassley said. “Otherwise, it won’t be taken seriously.”

    Trump’s complaints already have been investigated.

    Clinton’s use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 was investigated for months by the FBI.

    That investigation appeared to end last summer when former FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump fired in May, called Clinton’s handling of her email careless, but said “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” Comey then wrote a letter to Congress on Oct. 28, days before the November election, that the case had been reopened, followed quickly by an announcement that the case was, again, considered closed.

    Trump has needled Attorney General Jeff Sessions repeatedly, accusing him of being “weak” by not investigating Clinton. Democrats have suggested Trump is trying to humiliate Sessions to the point of resignation, a move that would ease the way for Trump to get rid of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion by the Trump campaign.

    Trump’s pique with Sessions, one of his earliest and staunchest supporters, stems from the attorney general’s decision in March to recuse himself from the Russia investigation after revelations he had met during the campaign with the Russian ambassador.

    It’s questionable as to whether Sessions would be able to order an investigation into Clinton even if he were inclined to do so: In his letter of recusal, Sessions noted he was sidelining himself from “any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for president of the United States.”

    Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., repeated his circumspect stance, a position he’s had all year, saying Wednesday that his committee is “investigating anything out of either campaign that could be collusion.”

    But there is little indication to believe that Clinton’s campaign is a focus. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, who said he understood Trump’s frustration and criticized Democrats for “going after (Trump) on everything, while Clinton actually did something,” suggested it was time for Trump to stop berating Sessions for not launching an investigation into his vanquished opponent.

    “I don’t believe he should do that, and I don’t believe he should say that,” Hatch said of Trump’s repeated requests.

    Democrats said the concept of a president browbeating his attorney general to take action against a political rival is entirely misguided.

    “I didn’t support him for the job, but Sessions is doing his job,” said Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. “It’s one more example of this president’s disrespect for the rule of law.”

    While I don't like what Trump is doing to Sessions ( Trump has no loyalty to anyone) I known who and what Sessions is. Don't forget he wants to lock up peeps who smoke herb and he thinks it's perfectly ok for cops to steal your money and property without a trial.

    The sad thing is Trump is attacking the one person in his cabinet who is actually effective at doing what Trump campaigned on in his platform: enforcing immigration laws aggressively.

    It is my understanding that Trump has had Session's resignation letter in his desk drawer since the perjury during confirmation hearings thing blew up. So, if Trump wants sessions gone, he's gone. The public shaming is childish to the extreme.

    Some of you fine folks are being played by both Sessions and Trump. But their ploy has given Sessions media cover long enough to blow the lid off the hillary/wasserman cover up and nab the guy with the answers BEFORE he fled the country.

    When is the last time that happened? The key suspects always get away or get suicided before they can talk.

    Good times! It's just going to get better too. .. :2 thumbs up:

    So did many top leftists like chuckles schumer. They are going to look silly when Sessions arrests their friends and they all of a sudden have to turn around and claim he's a racist. Again.
    Like when they all opposed Sessions nomination and got up and walked out of the senate chamber during his farewell speech. I doubt Mr Sessions forgot that.
