Skip to comments.The Trump/Sessions “feud” sounds like an October surprise is coming

I could be wrong about this.
Over the last couple of days, Donald Trump has been very critical of Jeff Sessions.
President Trump criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions in an interview broadcast early Thursday, saying he never took control of the Justice Department."Today Sessions pushed back
The Dems are very strong in the Justice Department," Trump said on Fox & Friends. "And I put in an attorney general that never took control of the Justice Department, Jeff Sessions. Never took control of the Justice Department.
Its sort of an incredible thing, he added.
We have this country going so well, Trump said, adding that [Secretary of State] Mike Pompeo is doing incredibly, all of my people, theyre doing incredibly.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired back against President Donald Trump on Thursday, saying the Justice Department will not be "improperly influenced by political considerations." Earlier, Trump attacked him on television, asking "what kind of a man is this?"Then Lindsey Graham said he'd support replacing Jeff Sessions:
"I took control of the Department of Justice the day I was sworn in, which is why we have had unprecedented success at effectuating the President's agenda," Sessions said in the statement, which was posted on Twitter by Justice Department spokesperson Sarah Isgur Flores.
During an interview that aired hours earlier on "Fox & Friends," Trump said Sessions "never took control of the Justice Department," criticizing the former Alabama senator for recusing himself from the investigation into possible links between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Thursday he believes President Trump will name a new attorney general "sooner rather than later" in his first term.Also today Sessions met with Trump:
Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, Graham said Trump is "entitled to an attorney general he has faith in," but said it'd be a "nonstarter" in the Senate for Trump to try to replace Jeff Sessions before the midterms.
"The idea of having a new attorney general in the first term of President Trump's administration, I think is very likely," said Graham.
Trump lashed out at Sessions once again in a "Fox & Friends" exclusive interview, criticizing the former Alabama senator for recusing himself from the Russia investigation, now overseen by his top deputy, Rod Rosenstein.
President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions played nice during a meeting Thursday afternoon in the Oval Office, despite fighting publicly just hours earlier about how the former Republican senator has performed at his job atop the Justice Department.It was suggested that Trump might fire Sessions after the mid terms.
One source described the meeting as a "win" to the Washington Examiner. The meeting, which was about criminal justice reform, stayed on topic, the source said.
The meeting with White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, and White House communications director Mercedes Schlapp was pre-planned, but came hours after Trump told Fox News early Thursday morning that Sessions "never took control of the Justice Department."
Sessions has at least 27 leak investigations ongoing. Thus far (that we know of) they've bagged Reality Winner and James Wolfe. Wolfe is thought to have shared the entire unredacted Carter Page FISA app with NY Times reporter Ali Watkins. You will note that the unredacted version of the FISA app has not been leaked, most likely because it would be the proverbial stake through the heart of the Russian hoax.
Trump just might fire Sessions, which would free him to appoint someone new who would not be recused from the Russian hoax, but pretty much anyone Trump chose would be stonewalled by democrats (and Jeff Flake) for who knows how long.
Thing is, Trump knows everything. He's the President. He can know everything. As I have previously noted, Trump thrives on chaos. He will have people chasing their tails in one direction while he gets other things done. While the left plays checkers, Trump is playing chess.
I think if Trump was really going to fire Sessions, he wouldn't be making a lot of noises about it.No, I suspect something else is afoot. While Sessions has rebuffed calls for another Special Counsel, he has John Huber. And Huber's working with the IG.

Had you told me two years ago that Jeff Sessions would have gotten something wrong that Linda Graham got right, I would’ve said “Lock me in a Lonnie Bin!”
Remember, Trump was part of the WWE for years.
That’s right! And Sessions was a wrestler for the WWE as well hence the connection!
Session’s is inept
Sessions is the most feeble, pathetic cuckold of a man I have ever seen.
How does a guy this weak and pathetic even have the energy to get up,in the morning ? He makes Jeb Bush look like a strong leader
It means two things:
1. He is compromised.
2. He's not compromised and all this stuff is just for show.
Jeff Flake and many current RATS & RINOs wont be in the Senate come January.
Yeah. Rosenstein’s friend Huber.
Sometimes things are just exactly like they look.
Hard to see alternatives to those two.
Hard to believe Sessions is this incompetent, and was a long term Senator...
Dr. John here sounds like a Q-tip.
“Trust the Plan! Trust the Plan!”
Trust Jeff Sessions? Seriously?
Hey Jeff, indict Hillary!!! We’re waiting.
I’ll put my money on your second choice.
My opinion, I think Sessions is being blackmailed, I think someone has the goods on him and has kept him under a tight leash..NO WAY would Jeff Sessions, who I actually supported being Attorney General when his name was announced, would not have investigated the Clinton Crime Family, NO WAY something is up..the Clintons are very good at two things, offing you(And making it look like an accident), and getting the goods on you and owning you for life
