Wednesday, November 07, 2018

President Donald Trump on Wednesday asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign, effectively firing him. "At your request I am submitting my resignation," Sessions wrote in a letter to White House chief of staff John Kelly.
Matthew Whitaker will take over as acting attorney general, the President said.

"The departure of Sessions, once one of Trump's most vocal and earliest supporters during the 2016 campaign, has been expected for weeks yet the move immediately exposed new divisions between the president and many Republican lawmakers who regard Sessions as a champion of the conservative movement."

and

"I don't have an attorney general. It's very sad," Trump said in an interview with Hill.TV. "I'm not happy at the border, I'm not happy with numerous things, not just this."

Mafioso Don considers the AG to be his very own personal Consigliori, not the Head of the DOJ.

Of course, the GOP wants him to be their own chosen Culture Warrior, so there's that too.

Can't remember who it was, ny over of the former drug czars said on Fox News a while back that he'd only support changing cannabis laws once a majority of the public does. Not even a year later, public polling showed just a thick over 50% supported amending the laws. This anti-drug war sentiment came on quickly and very strong. Sessions didn't even realize it until he had to just double down.

How long do we think it will be until Rosenstein is fired?

Trump Fires Jeff Sessions -- Is Rosenstein Next In Push To End Mueller Probe?

As Deputy Attorney General, Rosenstein would normally be first in line to replace Sessions, but Whitaker will apparently be taking his place.

As The Washington Post noted, Whitaker has made public statements expressing skepticism towards the Mueller investigation. Appearing on CNN in July 2017, shortly before he began working for Sessions, Whitaker argued, "I could see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced with a recess appointment, and that attorney general doesn't fire Bob Mueller, but he just reduces his budget to so low that his investigation grinds to almost a halt."

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said after the news broke that Trump risked creating a "constitutional crisis" if he impeded Mueller's investigation, Reuters reported.

WHATABOUT OBAMA!

Oh my god a drug warrior heading the drug enforcement agency!

www.washingtonpost.com

"The big news last month was a memo from Sessions directing federal prosecutors to pursue the most severe penalties possible for any crime, including drug offenses. That means more mandatory minimum sentences for federal drug crimes, a policy that the Justice Department had backed away from under President Barack Obama.

In the latter years of the Obama administration, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. had instructed federal prosecutors to seek less severe prison sentences for certain nonviolent drug offenders. Sessions's directive reverses that policy.

The net effect of the change is that more people will be going to federal prison, reversing a decline in the federal prison population in recent years. Sessions laid the groundwork for this in February when he directed the Justice Department to start using private prisons again to "meet the future needs of the federal correctional system."

False equivalencies are false.

The new acting attorney general wrote an op-ed slamming Robert Mueller

Matthew Whitaker, a former US attorney, rejoined the Justice Department after authoring an op-ed attacking Special Counsel Robert Mueller. In that op-ed, Whitaker claimed that Mueller "would be crossing a line if he started investigating the finances of Trump and his family."

"Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's letter appointing special counsel Robert Mueller does not give Mueller broad, far-reaching powers in this investigation," Whitaker falsely claimed. Instead, Whitaker argued that Mueller "is only authorized to investigate matters that involved any potential links to and coordination between two entities -- the Trump campaign and the Russian government."

Last May, federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson rejected many of the same arguments Whitaker raised in his op-ed.

It appears that the Justice Department's ethics advisors will probably request that Whitaker recuse himself from the Mueller probe just like Sessions. And if he refuses, we might very well see a new version of Nixon's Saturday Night Massacre play out one more time.

The only powers the House has next year is to be a major pain-in-the-ass to Trump, which I'm sure makes you happy.

Trump and the GOP just lost the ability to pass legislation and you're acting like that's no big deal.

"Trump and the GOP just lost the ability to pass legislation"

True, but I'm confident the GOP can still get their agenda enacted with all the legislation the Supreme Court will be doing from the bench.

Speaking of Lindsay Graham, what ever happened to his "Hell to Pay" if Trump fired Sessions?

Republicans are so corrupt they think that it is ok for the same person to be in charge of an election that they are in.

Republicans are so corrupt they think that it is ok for the President who is being investigated to pick the investigator.

Republicans are so corrupt they think that it is ok for a President is making a profit off of the People.

Republicans are so corrupt they think that it is ok for a President to think he is only President of half of the country.

Republicans are so corrupt they think "winning" is the goal by any means necessary even if it divides the nation further......

He probably thinks his Dear Leader can do anything he wants (like change the Constitution) with an executive order.

I wonder where sporky got that idea?

Rudy is locked up in the Trump Tower dungeon.

The new AG is gonna be someone who will not allow the Russia investigation to continue.

Which (spelled out for the Snippys amongst us) means Obstruction of Justice.

The only reason it's not a big deal is that other than the tax change the GOP didn't pass any meaningful legislation when they had both chambers.

It's pretty much phone and pen governance.

Probably the biggest thing that changes is Dems in the House will probably refuse to use the CRA.

This is becoming a tragic situation. Informed sources say Sessions has already tried to kill himself.

Some things are worse than racism.

For example, a President who is beholden to a murderous thug who isn't afraid to use chemical, radiological, and biological weapons to assassinate his enemies.

You used to care about things like that.

Why did you stop, jamesgelliott?

Reagan's "Evil Empire" isn't any less evil just because it's smaller now. They still have enough nukes to sterilize the planet and Putin still has imperial ambitions.
