Should Trump Fire Sessions? I say YES
Will Trump fire Sessions? Should he? Let's look at this from a perspective of "getting the job done"
The Mueller Team and Obstruction of Justice
Sessions has done nothing to reign in Mueller's witch hunt, which has gone past it's assigned duty and found nothing to suggest Russian-Trump collusion
Mueller found the man (Trump), now he’ll find the crime
"The Special Counsel is authorized to conduct the investigation confirmed by then-FBI Director James B. Comey in testimony before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on March 20, 2017, including: (i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and (ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation; and (iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. § 600.4(a)."
This isn't supposed to happen under American law, where a person can be given the task of an open investigation on someone with the end-goal of finding something, anything, that he or she has ever done that is illegal. That's the kind of thing that was routinely done in places like the Soviet Union, in which laws meant nothing and ideology and politics everything.
When Mueller was first named to look into allegations that the Trump campaign had colluded with Russian officials to tilt the election, we thought it was a bad idea driven by the Democrats' rage, not by any real concerns about Russian collusion. After all, when the book on U.S.-Russian/Soviet diplomacy is finally written, it will show collusion was basically a pillar of Democratic foreign policy from the 1970s on — from Teddy Kennedy and Jimmy Carter to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
Now, with his investigation linking the Trump campaign to any kind of actual collusion with the Russian government apparently going nowhere, Mueller has decided to broaden the investigation, according to news reports. If so, it's beyond his brief as a Special Counsel and he should be told to stick to what he's supposed to do.
Perhaps this is why Mueller's legal team is chock full of donators to the Democrat Party, and people who have worked for the Clinton Foundation personally.
Kurt Schlichter, Trump Needs To Be Smart About How He Fires Mueller
Trump must eventually fire Robert Mueller, a partisan tool carrying water for his Establishment pals as he oversees an utterly corrupt “investigation” where the only person we actually know committed any wrongdoing is his bestest buddy Jim Comey.
He has to do it so the American people will see and understand why ending this idiocy is so absolutely necessary to preserve our Republic despite the mainstream media’s best effort to hide the truth.
Sessions has done nothing about the "anonymous" leaks from Mueller's team.
From the Schlichter link,
I keep hearing how Mueller was this squared-away Marine officer, but through these incessant leaks his organization demonstrates a complete lack of both integrity and discipline. Mueller seems unwilling or unable to exercise any kind of leadership over his team of Hillary donors, or to instill a culture of seriousness and impartiality. The continuing misconduct of his out-of-control, ever-expanding fiefdom demonstrates that he must be relieved of command
America government is based on Rule of Law, not by Rule of Unaccountable Deep State, and yet we see more than a team of Hillary's lawyers supporting the Mueller team:
Sessions has done nothing about Clinton's "mishandling" of classified data, Soros' funding and organization of political riots, sedition by the Democrat/Deep State alliance, the conspiracy to import illegal aliens, or any other the other corruption and malfeasance of the Democrats:
The crimes committed by the members of the Democratic Party fall into a pattern of "racketeering" activity as defined by RICO. The Democratic Party as a whole may be held accountable for these actions

Sessions is more interested in wasting LE resources on potheads than on America's security needs
The War on Drugs is stupid and unconstitutional on moral grounds, and is a great waste of security assets on practical grounds. It drives a wedge between citizens and the LE community. The biggest wedge is in asset forfeiture...
Forget Russia. I'd fire Jeff Sessions over civil forfeiture
Attorney General Jeff Sessions wants to steal from you.
Oh, he doesn’t call it that. He calls it “civil forfeiture.” But what it is, is theft by law enforcement. Sessions should be ashamed. If I were president, he’d be fired.
Under “civil forfeiture,” law enforcement can take property from people under the legal fiction that the property itself is guilty of a crime. (“Legal fiction” sounds better than “lie,” but in this case the two terms are near synonyms.) It was originally sold as a tool for going after the assets of drug kingpins, but nowadays it seems to be used against a lot of ordinary Americans who just have things that law enforcement wants.
Again, this goes back to Rule of Law
Earlier, I referenced older posts of mine discussing whether Trump should move decisively against the Leftists/Deep State; making a decision regarding Sessions is part of that strategy.
Quite frankly, Sessions has failed to do what he needs to do...his main job is enforcing American law and protecting our security.
There will be consequences for confronting these traitors. The never-ending media scandal, the democong dial-a-riot, the quislings of the GOPe...
but Trump must move...

Decision "Soon" on Whether Sessions Will Stay or Go
Comment #175 Just fire everyone in the DOJ and start fresh.
It's constant outrage 24/7, might as well make the outrage useful.
And there is also the possibility that this is Trump's 3D chess
Comment #187 This is all political theater and the press and everyone else is falling for it.
Already Sen. Machin says Sessions should stay. A Democrat insisting Sessions should stay? Do you not see the operation here? Get Dems to publicly say they think Sessions should stay. Then watch as Sessions lays the hammer down on Dems somehow.
As it was said this morning on Fox Business, before Sessions even got in the door at DOJ it was well-known he'd have to recuse himself due to DOJ policy and Sessions' role on the campaign. Do you really think Trump was surprised by Sessions recusal?
And another thing, why would Trump choose the fakenews NYT for revealing his displeasure in Sessions in the first place? Does that make any sense to you?
Get a grip. Sessions not going anywhere. Would Trump really want Sessions to go and then have to appoint someone else that will take months? I just cannot imagine that at all. All over some ridiculous notion that Sessions hasn't gone after Clinton or Dems?
My guess is Sessions has been working on that stuff behind the scenes, quietly and waiting for the right moment to strike.
While I accept the possibility of the 3D scenario, I feel that Trump would best serve this country by enforcing the law: the full weight of the DOJ should be in cracking the Clinton Crime Ring, rounding up all the sanctuary city politicians under 8 USC 1324, bagging Soros for funding violent riots, and rolling up the entire web of democong subversion up under RICO
I don't really care how many upper-middle class bobbleheads are upset by enforcing the law, and I don't care how many urban riots there are (it's why God invented the riot gun, after all)
Let's get some teeth into cleaning this country up...if Sessions wasn't willing to do that, p*ss on him
Article II, Section I of the Constitution:
"The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States."
The buck stops with Trump.
