    Will Jeff Sessions Quit If Trump Does The DREAM Deal?

    Will Jeff Sessions Quit If Trump Does The DREAM Deal?

    ALLAHPUNDITPosted at 10:41 pm on September 14, 2017



    It’s one thing for him to endure public and private humiliation over a perfectly defensible ethical decision, like recusing himself from the Russiagate probe, if it means getting to quarterback a federal crackdown on illegal immigration. That’s his life’s work and Trump handed him tremendous power as head of the DOJ to pursue it on the grandest scale. You don’t lightly quit a job like that no matter how demeaning the boss is.

    But what if … you don’t get to crack down on illegals? What if you hold a press conference announcing the cancellation of Obama’s executive amnesty, due partly to the damage illegal labor is doing to young Americans’ ambitions, and then that same demeaning boss turns around and says he’s moving full speed ahead to legalize that illegal labor? There’s no point in enduring humiliation after humiliation to pursue your life’s work if you don’t, in fact, get to pursue it.


    Interesting timing on this NYT story, speaking of which. On the very day Trump makes the case on Twitter thatdeporting DREAMers is cruel, his point man on ending DACA has to read a blow-by-blow of his embarrassing dressing-down by the president in the Oval Office in May. The Times claims too many sources for me to believe that this leak was orchestrated for maximum impact on Sessions in terms of timing, but the story itself notes Trump’s developing DREAM deal is an especially harsh blow to the AG. The poor guy landed his dream job — no pun intended — and it’s turned into a nightmare. The scene: The White House, May 17th. Trump, Sessions, Mike Pence, and White House counsel Don McGahn are meeting to discuss who’ll replace Comey. McGahn’s phone rings. It’s Rod Rosenstein, calling to let him know that he’s appointing Bob Mueller special counsel on Russiagate.

    Mr. Sessions would later tell associates that the demeaning way the president addressed him was the most humiliating experience in decades of public life

    When the phone call ended, Mr. McGahn relayed the news to the president and his aides. Almost immediately, Mr. Trump lobbed a volley of insults at Mr. Sessions, telling the attorney general it was his fault they were in the current situation. Mr. Trump told Mr. Sessions that choosing him to be attorney general was one of the worst decisions he had made, called him an “idiot,” and said that he should resign.

    An emotional Mr. Sessions told the president he would resign and left the Oval Office. That evening, as the Justice Department publicly announced the appointment of Mr. Mueller, the attorney general wrote a brief resignation letter to the president that was later sent to the White House. A person familiar with the events raised the possibility that Mr. Sessions had become emotional because the impact of his recusal was becoming clear.

    Trump reportedly wanted to accept Sessions’s resignation but was talked out of it by, among other people, Steve Bannon. Bannon, having watched Trump make the biggest mistake in modern political history by firing Comey, didn’t want to watch him make the second-biggest by forcing out Sessions, unleashing total chaos at the DOJ and alienating the border hawks in his base who love the AG. Bannon gets knocked around in the media as some sort of nationalist wild man but he was cool and clear-eyed in that situation. Too bad we can’t say the same of the boss. Trump apparently returned Sessions’s resignation letter to him — with a handwritten note on it, although the Times doesn’t say what the note was. One trembles at the thought.

    Incidentally, this makes two tippy-top Trump aides now who’ve allegedly told friends that the verbal lashings they’ve gotten from Trump were the most humiliating experiences of their long careers as public servants. One is Sessions, a longtime senator turned attorney general. The other is John Kelly, a former four-star Marine general turned head of Homeland Security. I wonder if, say, Omarosa has been chewed out as viciously as the guy who used to head U.S. Southern Command.

    I think Sessions will hang around in the assumption that either (a) he, Bannon, Stephen Miller and other nationalists can apply enough pressure on Trump publicly and otherwise to get him to back away from DREAM or (b) if they can’t, DREAM will be the only amnesty Trump agrees to as president and afterward he’ll seek to atone to his base by letting Sessions go ahead with aggressive enforcement measures against adult illegals. I may lose the battle, Sessions might be thinking, but I’ll win the war. We’ll see. The kicker to all this, meanwhile, is that every time Trump obsesses over Sessions’s Russiagate recusal, publicly and privately, he impugns the AG’s integrity by implying that Sessions would have tanked the investigation for him if he were still in charge of the probe. Think about it — the clear implication in wanting Sessions, not Rosenstein, heading up Russiagate is that Sessions is a political crony who would have run interference for POTUS if the FBI started to make his life difficult. It’s not just a matter of believing that Sessions wouldn’t have appointed Mueller or anyone else as special counsel. The insinuation seems to be that, by recusing himself and thereby removing a White House lever of power at DOJ, Sessions made it harder to potentially obstruct justice if need be.

    *This* is why the attorney general of the United States is being humiliated regularly. Good lord.

    Please do not quit, the American people need you

    Don't forget TRUMP...that Jeff Sessions gave up his seat to support you and be your AG!

    Now we hope Alabama votes the right person in to fill his shoes

    You owe Jeff Sessions an apology and give him the tools to do his job or you will be FIRED

    I just read that the latest poll has Moore and Luther Strainge neck and neck for Sessions Alabama seat. That's a huge change from the poll I read before that had Moore trouncing Strange. We couldn't have Rep. Mo Brooks, so Moore is our man. Luther Strange is a Mitch McConnell endorsed establishment guy that we don't won't. Unfortunately Donald Trump supported strange too, but I think that was only at McConnell's urging.

    I heard Trey Gowdy was offered the AG job. If he was and turned it down, he made a smart move.

    trump liked sessions when he campaigned for and brought him votes/political backing. Hope Jeff keeps moving forward with the agenda we voted for. Jeff is the AG and has vowed to uphold the law and we expect the same from potus.

    When and where did you hear Gowdy was offered the job? That's not something I recall hearing. Why would he have been offered the job over Sessions?

    MW, I also heard that Trey Gowdy, was in consideration. I don't think it was a offer over Sessions. Trey Gowdy would also make a good AG, but I was glad he stayed where he is.
    I do not even know if he was actually offered the job, I just know he was being considered.

    I think that Sessions SHOULD quit if Trump caves in and gives illegals amnesty. I also think that everyone in the Republican party should dump Trump if he caves. It seems to me that Trump conned us into voting for him. He apparently doesn't work for the people who voted for him. He works for people like Pelosi and Schumer. If Trump caves in to this amnesty ordeal, he's a traitor to his voting base.

    I don't necessarily think Session should quit because doing so would serve no useful purpose. However, I do agree with everything else you said. Signing an amnesty bill would be the ultimate betrayal!

    I haven't really been on here much ever since I heard on tv that Trump made a deal with Pelosi and Schumer to legalize illegals. I felt extremely betrayed. I just wanted to throw my hands up in the air and give up and say...."That's it, we're f**ked. I might as well accept the fact that we are going to become the minority in our own country while illegals take over."

    Well MW, we either better brush up on our Spanish, so we can be good servants to our new hispanic masters, or just get the f**k out of this country once and for all in order to dodge the onslaught.

    Trump, our last hope, screwed us over big time instead of helping us, the people who put him into power.
