Jeff Sessions - Ask AMG

Asking AMG... has the alt-right propaganda machine turned on Sessions yet?

Curious to see if they follow Trump or the establishment... am guessing Trump but who knows.

Second question: Do you think Sessions was in the right when he recused himself, or was he a backstabbing Brutus?

Also, Axios is reporting that he's discussing replacements:

I do not know for certain but

I do not know for certain but, it appears that Sessions did not notify or discuss this with his boss either before or after he got the job, If that is accurate then Sessions made a firing mistake.

Another take on it is that

Another take on it is that Sessions is part of the good old boy network and didn't want to start a ruckus with the Dims.

Russian meddling in election

Russian meddling in election accusations etc. .
Sessions part of Trump support (one of the first)during campaign etc..

Probably at time on face value reason to recuse not that it would have nattered much as things went along.
mIstake was getting spec. pros. ,which was not on Sessions !

The best offense now would be a total attack with anopther SP on clinton covering everything !
Thgereis nothing to say we cannot have two special prosecutors.

If Trump has an issue with

If Trump has an issue with Sessions he should summon him to his office and deal with it face to face or at least call him and have a direct conversation. This tweeter stuff bullying him and denigrating him in public is pathetic.

If he doesn’t want Sessions in the job then just fired him like the big shot tough guy celebrity did on TV did…

I'm not sure what comprises

I'm not sure what comprises the alt-right propaganda machine. I have noticed that the Trump-swabs who infest the comment section of any right leaning news and opinion site slavishly follow the direction of dear leader. They have been anti-Sessions ever since Trump first complained about him recusing himself.

I thought Sessions did the proper thing.

Trump is delusional if he thinks he can drive Sessions out and get someone appointed who will carry his water. As supine as Republicans usually are, I don't think even they will go along with approving a yes man toady as AG.

I believe Al hits the nail on

I believe Al hits the nail on the head.....sessions is just another member of the club.Roger S doesn't think the ag should "carry water " for the president,thank God holder and lynch were such paragons of non political action and independent direction......Personally I thought sessions wasn't a great choice....Trey Gowdy or even good old ted Cruz.....

"I'm not sure what comprises the alt-right propaganda machine. "

Right, what I was referring to was how when Comey testified, you started seeing all sorts of articles about how corrupt he was.

Was wondering if that same machinery was working against Sessions as well, who, by all accounts, is pretty conservative.

It's really remarkable how

It's really remarkable how these trumpswabs lick the palm of their great leader. Sessions is extremely conservative, and comes out as Trump's first supporter during his candidacy. Result--Sessions is considered for VP, appointed AG. But because he may not be a complete Trump stooge and recuses himself, Trump calls his endorsement unimportant (what does this have to do with job performance, by the way?) and the trumpswabs start talking about Sessions as just another swamp creature. And the Pres doesn't even have the cojones to fire him outright, choosing instead to disparage him on social media like some zitty teenager. That's real leadership from a real tough guy. Lol. Pathetic.

It really is pathetic.

I think Trump represents a population whose voice needs to be heard, but he's a terrible policy maker and lacks all understanding of our laws and general civics.

The fact that he has has people who still rabidly follow him after all he's done is indicative of how badly that group of people wants to be heard. If there were *any* alternative, they would have jumped ship a while ago, but the fact that they haven't just shows how desperate they are for a voice.

The Dems have a real opportunity to steal this group away, if they could only get out of their own way and listen.

To listen, they'd have to shut up. They're too busy screaming...

The dems have the ability to

The dems have the ability to get some of trump's manufacturing/blue collar votes back, but I believe that a certain percentage of his voters are not backing him because of economics. They like him because of the cultural package--perceived tough guy opportunist who eats overdone steak with ketchup in his fancy restaurants, has quasi-racist/racialist beliefs about crime, immigration, etc. Smack talks elites, even though he embodies exactly what the one percent actually is. Class ID is complicated. West Virginians coal miners could identify with someone like Byrd. Bernie, not so much.

"Now that's funny I don't care who you are"

Can you imagine the Democrats being anything but what they are, a bunch of self-interested crooks, of course, that also describes the GOP, funny how that is and funny how voting does little to change the shit that is the beltway.

Alan Dershowitz is on EWTN

Alan Dershowitz is on EWTN defending Trump and condemning Sessions for his recusal. Al, Don and I are all on the same page.

Don Jr? Nothing inappropriate. Concur.

That woman, Mrs. Clinton? No crime(s) and no prosecution and he voted for her. That fucking Dershowitz doesn't know what he's talking about.
