WOW, Sessions Dines with Rosenstein in Show of Solidarity

Axios reports:
If Donald Trump finally follows through on his rage and fires Jeff Sessions, the image with this story will be printed in history books.
Tonight at 7:35pm, the Attorney General strode into a high-end Washington restaurant to dine with his deputy Rod Rosenstein and the Solicitor General Noel Francisco.
The symbolism was unmistakable: the three top ranking officials in the Justice Department appearing together in a show of solidarity on the same day Trump is publicly and privately raging about Sessions...
Sources close to the situation say today feels different than Trump's usual rages. Sessions' allies are deeply concerned and Trump is totally fed up with his AG.
Trump has been taunting and publicly humiliating Sessions for months now, but his tweet this morning was as rough as any he's sent:
"Why is A.G. Jeff Sessions asking the Inspector General to investigate potentially massive FISA abuse. Will take forever, has no prosecutorial power and already late with reports on Comey etc. Isn’t the I.G. an Obama guy? Why not use Justice Department lawyers? DISGRACEFUL!"
Trump is just horrible in judging personnel.

They are total cronies but Trump should have named Rudy Giuliani or Chris Christie as attorney general. There would never have been a special counsel if Giuliani or Christie were attorney general.

They would have had Trump's back.

Trump is just a street hustler, but even here his talents are very narrow and he is playing way over his league right now.

  1. Plus, if Sessions hadn't resigned, there would have not have been the spectacle of the Judge Moore defeat.
