Top GOP Senators Back POTUS – Clear Path For Trump to Fire AG Sessions After 2018 Midterm Elections

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA)

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) both backed President Trump on Thursday and said he deserves an Attorney General he has faith in.

The top key GOP Senators said they will both back President Trump if he fires AG Sessions after the 2018 midterm elections.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said in an interview with Bloomberg Thursday that he will make time for hearings to confirm a new Attorney General. This is a 180 degree turn from Grassley’s previous statements wherein he had made it clear he wouldn’t confirm a new AG if Trump were to fire Sessions.

Senator Graham told reporters on Thursday President Trump deserves an Attorney General he has faith in, reported Bloomberg.

“The president’s entitled to an attorney general he has faith in, somebody that’s qualified for the job, and I think there will come a time, sooner rather than later, where it will be time to have a new face and a fresh voice at the Department of Justice. Clearly, Attorney General Sessions doesn’t have the confidence of the president.”

The tension between President Trump and AWOL AG Sessions reached a fever pitch on Thursday.

AWOL AG Sessions unloaded on President Trump Thursday afternoon in a rare statement in response to the President’s interview with FOX & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt.

President Trump blasted AWOL Jeff Sessions during an interview with Ainsley Earhardt on FOX and Friends which aired on Thursday Morning.

President Trump: I put in an Attorney General who never took control of the Justice Department. And it’s sort of an incredible thing. We have this country going so well… I wanted to stay un-involved. Jeff Sessions recused himself and should have told me. What kind of man is this? He knows there was no collusion.

President Donald Trump went off on a tirade earlier this month against AWOL Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Just a few days ago, President Trump took another shot at AWOL Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a total disgrace and coward who refuses to do his job and refuses to resign.

Jeff Sessions recused himself the first day on the job citing the wrong law. He has been in the corner of the Justice Department cowering while his Deputy, Rod Rosenstein calls the shots.

Sessions recusal is the reason why Robert Mueller and 17 angry Obama-Hillary donors are hunting down everyone in President Trump’s inner circle.

It is impossible for President Trump to drain the swamp without an Attorney General. Sessions has to go.
