Rumors have been circulating that President Trump is not happy with the performance of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. It’s even been suggested that he may replace Sessions before too long.
If the President does give the AG the ol’ heave-ho, do you think that Democrats are going to try to defend Sessions? After all, they called him a racist and tried to block his confirmation.
Elizabeth Warren and Maxine Waters could never come to terms with agreeing with something that the President did.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, on the other hand, isn’t even sure who the President is.
President Trump has privately and publicly critiqued the AG. In a Monday morning tweet he described Sessions as “beleaguered.”
So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?

Axios’ Mike Allen reports that Trump has joked about tapping Rudy Giuliani for AG in private conversations with senior aides.
Giuliani was on Trump’s shortlist before he chose Sessions.
The question is, would Giuliani accept the position?
The Political Insider reports:
President Donald Trump has reportedly raised the prospect of replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, as the relationship between Trump and his embattled AG grows increasingly strained.
Axios’ Mike Allen reports that Trump has mused about tapping Giuliani for AG in private conversations with senior aides. The president is still allegedly fuming about Sessions’ March decision to recuse himself from the ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, which prompted the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Trump is also reportedly deeply distrustful of the deputy AG.
