How so? Does the president not have the right to ask someone to resign or outright fire them? Democrats should be happy Sessions is gone. I think a lot of Republicans are happy too. This kind of sounds like a win/win for a lot of people, not a Banana Republic. Can you clarify?

How? The investigation could have been stopped from day one. It wasn't. I'm not a Trump fanboi. I don't get this line of thought that something drastic is now going to happen and the investigation and any/all findings will be completely thrown out the window. If that's what you're suggesting, I'd like to know how that happens?

Not letting Rod Rosenstein take over as the acting AG is step 2

Step 2 of what? Is he still not in charge of the Mueller investigation? I didn't see that headline. Fact is, if Mueller has a shred of evidence on anything, he can spill the beans at any time. Nothing would be or is stopping him.

Again, getting rid of Sessions should be a point of jubilation for Dems. He wasn't your friend and it looks rather silly that any Dem would be concerned about him being asked to resign. Which again is well within the POTUS power. Him assigning someone new, again, within his powers.

IF Trump did anything illegal, it will come to light. The president will and always will be one of the most investigated people on the planet. Over 2 years since getting into this political process and very likely the worst thing dug up is him talking about grabbing pussy. If that's what you want to hang your hat on after two years, kudos to you I guess.

Given Trump's personality and behavior, last night was seemingly a bust for the Democrats as someone that considers themselves neutral. The entire house can be flipped again in 2 years and will be if Dems just want to have a witch hunt.

According to Fox and CNN, Whitaker is now in charge of the investigation

And? Has the investigation been stopped? Is this not like the 100th time the investigation was going to be shut down? You can only yell fire in a crowded theater so many times and expect people to keep reacting to it. We're at the 100th time now and nobody cares. Bring forth evidence after 2+ years. That's where most logical people stand, left or right leaning. Again, logical people.

Especially for @Aphroman:

https://politics.theonion.com/inconsolable-jeff-sessions-tries-to-commit-suicide-by-s-1826462420

WASHINGTON—Following months of bruising criticism from Democrats and President Trump alike, an inconsolable Jeff Sessions was reportedly trying to commit suicide Thursday by smoking a joint. “I swore I’d never take the coward’s way out, but what choice do I have?” said a teary-eyed Sessions, carefully laying a sealed envelope containing his farewell note on a tool bench in his garage as he raised a lighter to the marijuana cigarette with trembling hands. “This is it. I’ve taken four puffs to make sure there’s no chance of survival. It should only be a matter of minutes now. Oh, what a wretched, ignominious ending. Goodbye, cruel world, I’m sorry I’ve failed you so.” At press time, Sessions reportedly realized he had died after being overcome by a euphoric, floating feeling.

Is what happened really too sophisticated for you College Boys?
Trump has taken power and the Crybullies are just to have to put on their Fagboy pants and cheer the fuck up.
Trump has a strong Senate secured that wont Judas... er I mean Brutu... Er uh McCain Trump and stab him in the back by rubber stamping the Houses impeachment.

In other words Trump is free to be the President and the Liberals will be quite silly if they Bully the President.

The Republican Never Trumpers were primaried out and replaced with loyal Trumptonians.

Much better to secure the senate than the house. The senate is the body responsible for adjudication of impeachment crimes, and it is the senate that would vote to remove the President or not.
Secondly, a lot of dead wood on the GOP has been removed, one traitor even died finally, giving us all a rest from his mavericky ways.
Finally, appointments to cabinet positions can now be easily confirmed with the dream team Trump actually wants rather than the “minders” an extremely skeptical Congress forced on him at the beginning. One by one they’ve resigned or been forced out, paving the way for a MAGA cabinet. Sessions was the albatross he couldn’t get rid of without a strong Senate, so it’s no surprise that as soon as that Senate materialized, Trump took the smelly thing off his neck and pitched it into the sea.

Kelly Conway, is that you spinning it. if Trump hires him he is good, if he fires him he is bad. Sounds like a guy who either does not know as to whom he is hiring or he is the king and sending his subjects to the gallows if they disagree with him.

Seriously though, without Sessions, maybe we can get more sane marijuana laws.

From the interesting link above to CNN
Given his previous comments advocating defunding and imposing limitations on the Mueller investigation, Mr. Whitaker should recuse himself from its oversight for the duration of his time as acting attorney general," Schumer said.

I have forgotten how many indictments came out of the Mueller investigation. They are listed.

Of course he does, Trump waited to see what happens in the midterms and now they are over. He has a great outcome. He didn't get the house, but he has a Senate that wont let the Liberal Creeps just pervert their authority and the law and impeach him based on their feelz.

We're going to start seeing Trump treat those Never Trumpers who are confused of each other's job role and responsibilities like little bitches the way he treated Acoustya for the last 2 years.

He's going to start biting back and biting back hard. Don't forget especially for the criminally insane house members. Everyone he can get arrested on serious Federal charges and violations the more special elections chances he gets to flip the seat back Red. He let these idiots get away with Federal Crimes time and time again but I don't think his new AG will stand for it.

He wasn’t in congress anymore, Trump appointed him Attorney General. It was his job to enforce the law. Congress and the President are the ones tasked with ending the jihadist Prohibition. Fortunately we have Liberals here to fight back on behalf of the people.


I thought there was a process whereby the AG could at least change the drug schedule of cannabis?

https://www.brookings.edu/blog/fixgov/2015/02/13/how-to-reschedule-marijuana-and-why-its-unlikely-anytime-soon/

Even lowering it to a schedule 4 or 5 would make a massive difference. Schedule 5 and you're buying it at Walgreens/CVS from behind the counter without a prescription.

https://www.dea.gov/drug-scheduling

I never liked Jeff Sessions, as I'm not a real big fan of Southern Republicans or Southern politicians in general. His stance on pot was retarded. I think people jumping to the conclusion that the new AG will gut the Mueller investigation are putting the cart before the horse. As I've said before, Trump could have had it gutted from day one. I'm confused why some here fail to remember that aspect of this whole thing?

Be happy we got a Southern dimwit out of basically the highest LEO position in the country. I would think this is something both sides could celebrate.

Trump is going to ask the House to make MJ legislation then destroy them in the eyes of their voting public. When they waffle and play shit resist politcs after being instructed to do so.

Want a single payer? Trump will tell them to get it on his desk. But it isn't going to happen because they are there to resist and invent fantasies to overthrow Trump.

Oh How about DACA Amnesty? Sorry that wont happen either even though Trump will instruct them to give him a bill to sign.

Trump is going to have the Liberals the pariah of the nation by November 2020 and I'm going to laugh my ass off.

That would be the ultimate bluff!
I have 100% confidence that the Democrats will not pass any such legislation to make “Medicare for all” or “single payer” a reality. They are fully owned by the wealthy elite who have stocks and stakes in the enormously profitable health care industry. The Democrats are the “War Party of the Rich” as the GOP went all MAGA and left it behind. Pre-Trump, both parties were essentially the same: fronts for the wealthy elite War Party of the Rich. Now we see divergence.
The Rich will never actually let their Democrat stooges pass anything like single payer! Ever!
It just won’t happen. Same as they wouldn’t let the Democrats reform the immigration system, even when Trump promised to sign almost whatever they passed. They aren’t working for We the People, and in fact they consider such Populism to be somehow “treasonous” as if the government were in force to serve royalty rather than its people.

We have probable cause on Hillary and the Obama DOJ/FBI.

We know the FBI leaked to the Media, then used the stories based on the leaks to get a FISA warrant.

The reason for Trump to pursue this is to repair the Agency's relationship with the FISA Courts, since Judges REALLY don't like being lied to. Really don't.

The only thing Mueller could ever get Trump on would be some kind of process charge.
