    Trump could replace Jeff Sessions with Ted Cruz: report

    Trump could replace Jeff Sessions with Ted Cruz: report

    MORE ON:President Trump is considering replacing Attorney General Jess Sessions with Texas senator and loyal Trump supporter Ted Cruz, a report said.


    Trump has become increasingly frustrated with the attorney general since he recused himself from the Russian collusion investigation and White House officials are looking at replacements, according to The Washington Post.

    Two people being considered for the job are Cruz and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, the paper said.

    Giuliani has already publicly dismissed the idea of taking on the role.

    Cruz has previously said that he didn’t think it was necessary for Sessions to recuse himself in the probe.

    Trump has made a number of public comments disparaging Sessions, including calling the attorney general “beleaguered” in a tweet Monday.

    So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?

    You've already taken our best ally in the U.S. Senate and now you want to throw him away over this Russia mess and grab another one of our immigration allies so you can possibly throw him away later too? Keep Jeff Sessions right where he is and let him do his job for the American people, Mr. President!

    Can Sessions get in the Alabama Senate Race and go back to the US Senate? Just a thought. Newmexican, what do people in Alabama think about this situation? I understand why Sessions recused, I just didn't agree with the decision, but I still love the man. It's a tragedy to see these wicked Obamaites in the US Department of Justice tearing a great friendship apart between our dear President and a beloved Senator over the Russia Hoax. We need to unite with a game plan and outsmart 'em.

    The election for Session's seat is August 15th so I don't believe that Sessions could make that race. The top contenders seem to be Strange, Brooks and Moore. Jeff Sessions is held in high esteem by the people of Alabama. He has historically run unopposed and garnered over 60% of the vote. At his age, I question whether he would be interested in making a run for the senate in 6 years. Shelby (age 83) , the other Senator from Alabama was reelected in 2016. In 2016 Alabama ranked 5th in Gallup's rating of conservative states.

    Luther Strange, acting, was the AG that fought the Holder?Perez Justice Department assault on the Alabama immigration law. Won some lost some, but the sentiment was in the right place.

    It is interesting to me that in past years there have been two very public battles (Arizona and Alabama) in which the Federal government has claimed the exclusive right to control immigration. Now, when the Socialist Democrats need those undocumented voters, their claim is that it is the State's and municipalities' rights to declare themselves a sanctuary state or city. I though that in both cases, Federal law and enforcement prevailed and in the case of Arizona, it was the Federal government and multiple countries including Mexico and Guatemala that joined in the lawsuit....

    Thanks for the info Newmexican. I know Alabama loves Jeff Sessions. We all do. So, he should just stay put at AG and withdraw his recusal.

    Withdrawing his recusal would make him look foolish and would bring his integrity into question. Giving in to a Trump temper tantrum is not the answer.

    Right now I'm almost convinced that Trump is lashing out in all directions in an effort to protect his son and son-in-law, possibly even himself. I think it's possible he sees Sessions as his fall guy to help distract the media from the investigations.

    In view of the situation Sessions was forced into, the recusal was the right thing to do.

    We have a runaway self-running rogue Justice Department right now because Jeff Sessions recused himself from all things Russian. We have an unpoliced beyond the scope outside the law special counsel investigation of private personal conversations, meetings, business affairs with no crimes, no evidence of crimes, no probable cause or reasonable suspicion and nothing but illegal leaks by the investigators looking for crimes that aren't there trying to destroy lives, reputations and businesses in the process. Allowing this to continue is not an example of integrity, it's an example of a mistake with a decision to recuse. When you make a mistake even in good faith and realize it was the wrong decision, then you reverse it and fix it which is all Jeff Sessions needs to do to end this squabble now.

    Sounds exactly like something I would expect President Trump to say. Well, I disagree with you and think AG Sessions is doing his job as our country's top law enforcement official and is following Trump's agenda. Sessions, However, isn't Trump personal attorney and isn't serving to keep Donald Trump, Jr., Kushner, and everyone else associated with the Trump family out of hot water for their possible indiscretions.

    Don't throw Sessions under the bus! Keep him where he is. He already lost his seat.

    So take Cruz...then in couple months fire him too? NO!

    Trump needs to lay off the tweets, start being mindful of what comes out of your mouth and get down to business.

    Get your family out of the WH and back to their jobs. They helped you get in and with the transition with so much hostility but now they need to go!
