When Trump was asked if he would fire his Attorney General if he wouldn’t investigate Hillary Clinton and Democrats, the President gave an answer that made it clear that Jeff Sessions better investigate Clinton or else.
When asked if he would fire Sessions if he doesn’t investigate Clinton and the Democrats, Trump said, “I don’t know.”
He added, “A lot of people are disappointed in the Justice Department, including me.”
The President’s answer made it clear. If Sessions doesn’t investigate Clinton, he will be fired. Getting rid of Sessions for not investigating Hillary Clinton, would also open the door for Trump to appoint a new attorney general who could fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
The endgame for Trump isn’t about investigating Democrats. The President is trying to kill the Russia investigation.
Trump is meddling in the DOJ in a way that hasn’t been seen since Richard Nixon. Trump is trying to save his dying presidency, and if firing Jeff Sessions would give him the pretense he needs to also fire the Special Counsel, the odds are good that Donald Trump will invent a reason to fire Jeff Sessions.
