‘Democrats…Must Love Him Now’: Trump Blasts Sessions For Not Doing Enough

It seems President Trump could fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions any day now as his language against the leader of the Justice Department continues to escalate in vitriol.

“Good job Jeff,” Trump said in a tweet on Tuesday. In typical Trump manner, the comment was very sarcastic.

The tweets place blame on Sessions and the Justice Department for the timeliness of criminal charges brought against Republican Congressmen Duncan Hunter and Chris Collins.

“Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department. Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff…” Trump tweeted before invoking the name of former FBI Director James Comey. Trump said both he and Sessions were hated by Democrats, but will probably be liked.

“….The Democrats, none of whom voted for Jeff Sessions, must love him now. Same thing with Lyin’ James Comey. The Dems all hated him, wanted him out, thought he was disgusting – UNTIL I FIRED HIM! Immediately he became a wonderful man, a saint like figure in fact. Really sick!”

Here’s more, from Splinter News:

After attacking AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Labor Day, Trump turned his sights on Attorney General Jeff Sessions over the indictments of New York GOP Congressman Chris Collins and California Rep. Duncan Hunter.

Collins and his son were arrested and charged with insider trading in early August, while Hunter and his wife were indicted later the same month for wildly misusing campaign funds. Collins and Hunter were the first two members of Congress, respectively, to endorse then-candidate Trump for president.

The 18-month federal investigation of Hunter was prompted by reports in the San Diego Union-Tribune. Collins had been under investigation for well over a year.

And, from Washington Examiner:

Reps. Chris Collins of New York and Duncan Hunter of California were the first two congressmen to back Trump in February 2016. But in August, both were charged with criminal offenses in separate cases.

Collins was accused of sharing not-yet public information about a failed drug trial in mid-2017 with his son, Cameron Collins, whom prosecutors said used it to make stock trades. Collins learned the information while attending a Congressional Picnic at the White House and contacted his son from the event, the Justice Department said.

Hunter and his wife were indicted on charges of stealing $250,000 of campaign money to pay for personal expenses, with prosecutors citing instances from 2009 through 2016.

Potentially firing Sessions would undoubtedly carry a tremendous political price and could cause Republicans to lose votes in the November congressional elections, something Trump is surely looking to avoid.

Some political pundits are predicting Trump could make such a provocative move after the elections but before the year’s end.
