POTUS SLAMS SESSIONS AGAIN: He Endorsed Me Because of Big Crowds, Not Loyalty
Gateway Pundit ^ | 07/25/2017 | Joshua Caplan 

Posted on 07/25/2017 1:38:22 PM PDT by Rusty0604

In a brief interview with the Wall Street Journal, President Trump ripped into Attorney General Sessions once again. This time, the President cut even deeper, suggesting Sessions endorsed him because of Trump’s success as a candidate, not out of loyalty.

President Donald Trump  expressed his disappointment in Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday and questioned the importance of Mr. Sessions’s early endorsement of Mr. Trump’s candidacy, but the president declined to say whether he planned to fire him.

“It’s not like a great loyal thing about the endorsement,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “I’m very disappointed in Jeff Sessions.”

While the President is still mum on his plans concerning Sessions, Scaramucci told NBC News a decision on the AG’s future will be made ‘shortly.’

Don't trust what you read from the WSJ, the NYTimes, or the rest of the lib media. And don't necessarily trust what Trump says on Twitter.

I think Twitter is the only way to tell what the President honestly thinks on any given topic. He himself has said that he views it as his way to reach out directly to the American people without the filter and the bias of the media, so I don't see him using it to lie or to misdirect. If we can't believe what he says on Twitter then how can be believe anything? And the President of all people knows that.

This is war...and Trump is nothing if not an ardent follower of The Art of War.

Trump is also a man who says what he believes. He holds nothing back. His statements on Sessions have to be what he really thinks. I don't think it's a ruse. And if Session doesn't take the hint, do the honorable thing, and resign then the President can't let that just hang there. So if this is war then it's a war for who is in charge here, Trump or Sessions. The gauntlet has been thrown and the President can't just let it lie there. He has to take actions and fire him.

“I’d say President Trump is putting all this nonsense out there to hide what is really going on here in terms of AG Sessions.”

I’ve been hoping that’s the story for a few weeks now. I am hoping to see a mile-long perp walk soon.

Ok. My first remark was to your "-- I wish he'd be adult and give the reasons he has lost confidence in Sessions ... --"

Now you say "-- He gave his reasons... I just disagree that Trump should be doing drip drip attacks on Sessions on Twitter --"

Obviously, two different issues. If you'd said "I don't think he should do this on twitter" in the first place, I'd not have challenged your remark.

It's a recusal. Ethics. As in not wanting ti give the appearance of wrong-doing. All DJT had to do is be above the fray, let it play out until his FBI director is in place, and let the senate confirm judges. Then go on the attack.

This is a strategic unforced error.

Yes, why should I care about Jeff Sessions? Personally, I never was a fan of his Ashley Wilkes demeanor which came across as...Ashley Wilkes-like.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Announces the Department of Justice’s Renewed Commitment to Criminal Immigration Enforcement

Attorney General Jeff Sessions today spoke to Customs and Border Protection personnel at the United States-Mexico border in Nogales, Arizona.

In his remarks, the Attorney General announced that he has issued the attached memo to United States Attorneys that mandates the prioritization of criminal immigration enforcement. The memo directs federal prosecutors to focus on particular offenses that, if aggressively charged and prosecuted, can help prevent and deter illegal immigration.

Additionally, the Attorney General revealed that the Department of Justice will add 50 more immigration judges to the bench this year and 75 next year. He also highlighted the Department’s plan to streamline its hiring of judges, reflecting the dire need to reduce the backlogs in our immigration courts.

The only rational answer to your question is that Trump had no idea recusal was even on the table.

You're just making stuff up. Everyone who half paid attention to the transition period, Sessions confirmation, and the weeks from then until he recused on March 2 knew that recusal was on the table. It was in the news constantly, with Dims and Rinos from every direction calling for recusal.

Yes, DJT’s actions are indeed, BS. Go back and look at all my posts for DJT. My wife went door-knocking with Ivanka. But this is a dick move.

exactly right....ive never seen such an attack on a sitting President...cant people dont see whats happening. Sessions never should have accepted the job...hes too old and hes scared stiff of the media. Trump is taking these bastards on single handedly and his AG says Kamala Harris makes him nervous...good lord. Hes a nice guy, but this is different time we live in. Cant believe Trump is being taken down over a crime that doesnt even exist.

No, it’s a monumental decision with implications across the board. Sessions could make that decision on his own, but he owed his boss the minimal courtesy of an advance notice.

We never believed Obama when he said the first he heard of something was on the news. The first Trump hears of something this major *shouldn’t* be on the news.

Please. The MSM/Dems babbling about something doesn’t mean it’s on the table. It’s not at that point unless and until Sessions starts to seriously consider it. As soon as he’d made his decision, he owed Trump the basic and nominal courtesy of a phone call. Period.

But the impetus is that Sessions (or any head of justice) can fire Mueller and Trump’s firing Sessions is a way of installing a lead that WILL.

Again - it’s a matter of political cover.

No one here has supported Trump more than I have. I declared for him in June 2015, I worked for him, I voted for him twice, I hope he is our President until 2025.

I know how you feel, and Sessions was my senator and I wasn't thrilled to see him leave the senate, and now this.

And I've actually supported Trump since 2011 when I heard his stance on several issues like trade and immigration, I think in a CPAC speech. Started a thread about it in 2011. I was more in agreement with his issues than any candidate in my lifetime.

' I knew he had huge talents and huge flaws, but I hoped the flaws would become less and less evident if he won. This has not been a fun week.
