Jeff Sessions Resigns as AG, At President's Request

BREAKING.

With additional Senators coming into office, and fewer NeverTrump cucks, Trump calculates that he will be able to get a replacement AG through.

Okay, I don't want to be That Guy, but I guess we're finally done with the "Stealth Jeff" and Q Anon stuff about Jeff Sessions being a double-secret super-agent carrying out Trump's labyrinthine schemes?

We're done with that now, right?

Can we accept that most of the time the world is much as the world appears? That there's not always some Super Secret wheels-within-wheels scheme?

Correct: Christopher R. Taylor sums up my thoughts:

Kinda sad in one way. Sessions was an early Trump supporter and I think he's a good guy. He's clearly on the side of law and order and was getting some good stuff done. But he clearly was not the right temperament for the job and obviously trusted his fellow Justice Dep't people far more than they deserved.

His failure to act over and over when it was clear as a leader he should (such as when they were stonewalling congress on documents, defying direct orders from the president, etc) made it obvious the man was not fit for the position at this time.

If we had a good DOJ that had not spent the last 24 years being infected by hard left radicals, he probably would have been the perfect choice. But he either refused or could not see how many people were in his department who were far more interested in leftist power than justice and law.

And so he needed to go.

A sharp observer I know said, "The Democrats looked for Jeff Sessions' pressure point, his sense of himself as a Gentleman of Honor and Amity, and they used that against him and squeezed it until he was empty of everything except compliance."

He didn't know What Time It Is. He still believed in the old rules. He didn't notice his opponents had discarded those years ago in favor of sheer Will to Power.


Even Pithier:

313 Trump needs a war time consigliere

-- A Quiet Man

That sums it up.

"Tom, you're out."
