Donald Trump has privately once again raised the idea of firing his Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

President Trump, who levied extraordinary public attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions in recent weeks, has privately revived the idea of firing him in conversations with his aides and personal lawyers this month, according to three people familiar with the discussions.

His attorneys concluded that they have persuaded him — for now — not to make such a move while the special-counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign is ongoing, the people said.

But there is growing evidence that Senate Republicans, who have long cautioned Trump against firing Sessions, are now resigned to the prospect that he may do so after the November midterm elections — a sign that one of the last remaining walls of opposition to such a move is crumbling.

“We wish the best for him, but as any administration would show, Cabinet members seldom last the entire administration, and this is clearly not an exception,” Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) said in an interview Tuesday.

“Nothing lasts forever,” Sen. Richard C. Shelby (R-Ala.) told The Washington Post, describing the Trump-Sessions dynamic as “a toxic relationship.”

Added Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), a longtime defender of the attorney general: “My sense is the fix is in.”

I think “the fix is in” is the best way to describe all of this. 

Especially since Trump’s entire issue with Sessions is that he recused himself from the Russia investigation and was therefore not able to keep Rod Rosenstein from appointing a Special Counsel to look into the situation. 

And if Sessions is taken out we all know for a fact that Trump will try to put a sycophant in his place who will either stop the investigation altogether or sabotage it from within. 

And clearly, Trump is straining against the advice of his lawyers as confirmed by today’s announcement that White House attorney Don McGahn is on the way out. 

Yeah, that’s not good news. 

However, IF Trump’s remaining lawyers can keep him in check until after the midterms there is a chance that the newly elected Democrats in the House, and hopefully Senate, will be able to deny Trump the new AG that he would want in place. 

This next election is going to be for all the marbles.

    ‘all the marbles. All possible prizes or rewards. Typically used in the phrase “for all the marbles,” which is said when one is on the verge of victory. He is currently in first place, so his final putt is for all the marbles!’
    Hands Up.

    Rachel Maddow again explained another large branch of T gop incorporated last night 8/28 on her show. The network of criminals worldwide include the weak insecure face and family of Donald John Trump. He only has time to lie about it now. He does not have time to govern the USA. He must work hard everyday to deceive and commit more crimes to stay in his rigged position.

    Who will produce, direct and act in the true movie of America vs T incorporated? Trump screams if the gop loses in Nov., there will be violence. Really. The violence in Donalds head needs to stop. He must resign and face his fate along with his enablers. The reality show has been canceled.

    “The former Russian ambassador received a salary payment twice as large as past years, and bankers blocked a $150,000 withdrawal.”
    “On Jan. 25, 2017, less than a week after Trump was sworn in, a Citibank relationship manager was visiting the diplomatic compound for an annual check-in when embassy officials asked to withdraw $150,000 cash. In the past, the embassy had withdrawn about $30,000 in cash each month. Now it was asking to take out five times that amount.”

      I thought it was interesting that he was recalled to moscow not long after trump was in office, did the handler get recalled to russia before he could be arrested?

    Don McGahn had no idea he was leaving the White House until Trump’s tweet: ‘It’s death by Twitter’

    “McGahn had no idea this move was coming from Trump. He explained that Capitol Hill is starting to get nervous about this recent decision.”

    ““How do you properly deal with Mueller’s and his potential request to subpoena the president for an interview and his potential request to indict a sitting president. If a new attorney general is there and he’s a lackey for this president, look out,”
    “I think there are plans being put in place. What I call prosecutorial parachute with maybe sealed cases tied up in those for certain state, U.S. state district attorney’s offices and various U.S. attorneys around the states. The clock is ticking.””

    Gosh one would think the “stable genius” is asking to be impeached.

    Yeah, the reason Betsy DeVos is trying to protect the sex offenders in sport is because the perpetrators come from rich white families. You know they gotta protect their own no matter what. As for Trump trying to fire Jeff Sessions, I do hope the orange bastard isn’t able to pull that off until it least matters. His body language is speaking volumes. I wonder what would happen to his mind when it finally comprehends that no one on earth likes him except Vlad. And that’s only because Vlad needs him to undo our country.
