Is Trump’s “Good ‘ol Boy”, Jeff Sessions, Getting Ready to Bail?
It looks as though there is a rift developing between Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump. It seems that President Trump is very pissed off because Jeff Sessions chose to recuse himself from the Trump/Russia investigation. Apparently, “the Donald” takes Jeff Sessions’ recusal as some sort of disloyalty or Sessions not being a “team player”. In reality, this recusal by Jeff Sessions is one of the few times in his entire career where he has actually displayed any type of ethics or balls.
The only bad thing for Jeff Sessions is that he “conveniently” violated his recusal by making a public statement about former FBI director, James Comey. This was totally unethical for Jeff Sessions to do, and to make it worse, he knew it was wrong to violate his recusal after making such a big deal out of it. It must be really nice to be in a position like Jeff Sessions where you can turn off your sense of ethics like turning off a light switch. Of course, can we expect anything different from a cabinet member of Donald Trump?
One thing that really pissed off Donald Trump was that Jeff Sessions gave “the Donald” only 20 minutes notice before announcing his recusal. Even I can admit that this was a rather tacky move by Jeff Sessions, even if it was a treatment for someone like Donald Trump, whom I totally despise.
Now it seems that Jeff Sessions is going to resign his position as Attorney General; a position that he was never qualified to fill in the first place. His record as a federal prosecutor in Alabama and his term in the U.S. Senate hardly showed any real talent or skill for the job. His appointment was just another patronage appointment, made by Donald Trump because he felt obligated to Sessions because he was a Trump supporter. During the campaign, Jeff Sessions was one of Donald Trump’s biggest cheerleaders. Now, it looks as though their “bromance” is over. What a pity!
