Jeff Sessions is a superstar

Sessions continues to be the highest performing member of the Trump administration, even in the face of significant buffeting from above.

Not only has he initiated key reforms of the DOJ from the ravages and politicization of the Obama years, he also had the courage to do the right thing and recuse himself from the Russia probe, stood up to his boss when he tried to bully him into leaving, and now is doing what he can to try to protect its independence.

Quote:
WASHINGTON – Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Donald Trump fired his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange.

Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm that Trump would invite should he attempt to remove the deputy attorney general. While Trump also has railed against Sessions at times, the protest resignation of an attorney general – which would be likely to incite other departures within the administration – would create a moment of profound crisis for the White House.

In the phone call with McGahn, Sessions wanted details of a meeting Trump and Rosenstein held at the White House on April 12, according to a person with knowledge of the call. Sessions expressed relief to learn that their meeting was largely cordial. Sessions said he would have had to consider leaving as the attorney general had Trump ousted Rosenstein, this person said.

Another person familiar with the exchange said Sessions did not intend to threaten the White House but rather wanted to convey the untenable position that Rosenstein’s firing would put him in.

A Justice Department spokesperson declined to comment.

Rosenstein’s status remains uncertain, but the pressure he is facing seemed to subside after last week.

Last summer, when it appeared Trump was going to fire Sessions or pressure him to resign, Republican lawmakers and conservative advocacy groups rallied to Sessions’s side and warned the president not to move against him.

Trump had told senior officials last week that he was considering firing Rosenstein, who was confirmed by the Senate with overwhelming bipartisan support last year. Since then, alumni of the Justice Department have rallied to Rosenstein’s defense.

As of Friday afternoon, more than 800 former Justice Department employees had signed an open letter calling on Congress to “swiftly and forcefully respond to protect the founding principles of our Republic and the rule of law” if Trump were to fire the deputy attorney general, special counsel Robert Mueller or other senior Justice Department officials. The group MoveOn.org has sought to organize nationwide protests if such an event were to occur.

Rosenstein, on behalf of the Justice Department, is set to argue a sentencing case, Chavez-Meza v. United States, before the Supreme Court on Monday. Appearing before the high court has long been a professional goal, people close to Rosenstein say.

A senior administration official said Sessions does not like the way Rosenstein has been treated by the president and had expressed such concerns for months. He has regularly sought guidance from the White House about Rosenstein’s standing with the president and asked about his interactions with Trump, this official said.

He's been dutifully working on implementing the good parts of his boss's agenda, even after being treated shamefully by him. His love of country and his sense of duty have prevailed. Sessions is an honorable man and public servant and history will treat him that way.

Trump doesn't want to touch him. That's all an act. Sessions is his silent assassin.

Can we agree that Jeffs principles were AWOL when he accepted his post, knowing he might be compromised?

That's why firing him is fine, everybody knows who and what he is, so just do it, fire him.

Scott Pruitt is top dog.

The left is going after him, because they adhere to their Earth Goddess religion of green communism. I love that they's so triggered by him.

Sessions is an honest honorable man. That in itself triggers a lot of people.

I despise his politics on many levels, but you can't say the dude doesn't have principles.

Why would it be unprincipled for him to accept the job? The only thing that one could say was "compromised" was his ability to run an investigation into the president's campaign, because he was a part of it. If that was unprincipled, then why did the president nominate him?

Id say the opposite. He took it because he is a dedicated honest public servant and knew full well he would be tested as all public servants are at any level by those who have no principals or moral roadmap.

I'd say, "We'll see if you still say the same thing when he goes full-on Mueller and starts going after Democrats with a vengeance", but we know Mueller is loved by the left because, well, he won't.

Mueller is a pussy, shell-shocked, scared, shaking in his shoes, and refuses to leave the foxhole and join the fight against liberal tyranny.

Yeah, that's why I hope he falls into a wood chipper, we need somebody who will either fight or get out of the way so a real man can take the job and do what he's too much of a pussy to do.

Because he didn't have to recuse himself, he chose to because he's a pussy and living in the past. He could have been a real man and told them to "****-off, he's not recusing himself, and they can expect the fight of their life"!

He's like the soldier who can't join the fire fight claiming he doesn't have perfect military creases in his uniform and he doesn't want to look bad to the enemy and get his boots dirty. But we all know it's because he's really just a coward.

I'd love to be wrong, but so far he's done nothing to help the country or the party. He's drawing a paycheck AND getting in the way of progress.

I hope he expires.

Yes, he could have. That would be the thing a non-principled guy would do.
