LOL Trump got Schumer to love Jeff Sessions

Chuck Schumer just warned President Trump not to appoint a replacement for Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

Schumer said: "I am not confident in Senator Sessions’ ability to be a defender of the rights of all Americans, or to serve as an independent check on the incoming administration."

Oh wait, that was what Schumer said in February when he voted against Jeff Sessions as attorney general.


Just as he went from demanding the firing of Jim Comey as FBI director to anger over the firing, Schumer suddenly is the best friend of Jeff Sessions.

This is Trumphobia.

It drives small minds crazy.

From February:
Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said Thursday he will oppose the nomination of fellow U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions to be the next attorney general.
“After reviewing his record and giving careful consideration to his answers during the hearing, I am not confident in Senator Sessions’ ability to be a defender of the rights of all Americans, or to serve as an independent check on the incoming administration,” said Mr. Schumer, New York Democrat.
“I am also deeply concerned by his views on immigration, which I saw firsthand during the push for comprehensive immigration reform,” Mr. Schumer said.
That was then.

This is now:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has not even stepped aside, and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer is already warning President Donald Trump against attempting a recess appointment of a replacement in August.
On the floor Tuesday, the New York Democrat said that members of his caucus were prepared to use every means available to prevent a recess appointment to replace Sessions during the break. That likely means the Senate will technically be in session throughout the month, even after the chamber’s scheduled already-extended time in Washington, D.C.
“Here’s the danger. Many Americans must be wondering if the president is trying to pry open the office of attorney general to appoint someone during the August recess who will fire Special Counsel Mueller and shut down the Russian investigation,” Schumer said of former FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, who is leading the probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. “Before this scheme gains wings, Democrats will never go along with the recess appointment if that situation arises. We have some tools in our toolbox to stymie such action. We’ll be ready to use every single one of them, any time, day or night,” Schumer continued
Sessions was an appointee who didn't work out for President Trump. I have said all along he will fire people who do not measure up.

The Constitution allows recess appointments.

  1. I didn't know that the minority party could keep the senate on session. Chucky Schemer is such a cretin and I look forward to his continued losses.

  2. I don't usually care for word-play or such like on a man's name ... after all, he generally didn't have a hand in choosing it himself ... but I make an exception for people behaving like A-holes.

  3. In NY Schumer is famous for his round the clock nonpartisan availability as long as there is a potential donor in need. If he ever becomes majority leader Harry Read will be remembered fondly.

  4. I'm as glad as you or anyone else that Crooked Hillary is not the POTUS; but President Trump is far from perfect. Surely you do not believe that Attorney General Sessions has not "measured up" to any reasonable standards or that President Trump's childish, public criticisms of Attorney General Sessions are appropriate.

  5. We don't know what conversations have gone on behind the scenes. Trump mentioned that Sessions won't go after Hillary. What about the unmasking of Trump people? This most recent Democrat IT guy? Are they subpoenaing the DNC computer. The big divide amoung Republicans is some believe we are in a Cold Civil War, some don't. My guess Sessions doesn't, thus his desire to return the DOJ to normalcy, and not fight. This is the same attitude G. W. Bush had, and look where that got us.

  6. While I believe the Russia (non)story will turn out to be a nothing burger, Trumps renewed, escalating interest in AG Sessions indicates that President Trump appears fearful of Mueller's no limit investigation. Mueller may never find a Russian connection, but he looks destined to find something, anything to incriminate President Trump. He should have fired Comey on day 1, failing that he should not have fired him in such a publicly humiliating manner. President Trump should think long and careful before firing AG Sessions.

    1. Well, when have Mueller's predecessors find anything substantive?

      There ya go.

      I seriously doubt anything will be found.

      Trump has been a public figure for close to 40 years. His basic views on trade, military, US power and leadership have stayed almost the same.

      He is the most vetted person to run for president.

      If there was something in his background and dealings, it would have been out by now.

      Mueller has zip, zero, bubkis, nadda damn thing.

      It's all theater designed to hamper the admin.

  7. How long does it take to send a Tweet?
    ***
    How long do people - politicians, pundits, blog creatures like us - spend going over the Tweets?
    ****
    Now compare the time spent going over Trump's Tweets to the time he spent Tweeting and ask this: what is he doing in the time no one is talking about what he is doing?

    Where there is smoke there is often a smoke screen.

  8. I think the tweets were a warning to Sessions to start pushing back. "If the Democrats want an investigation into the election, fine, start one on Obama, Clinton, and the DNC.". Which the AG has now done.

  9. President Trump wanted a fighter for Attorney General and ended up with Caspar Milquetoast. If Sessions really wants to keep his job he'd better start sending up some fireworks. - Elric
