Sessions resigned.

The bloodbath begins. Donny, of course, targeting the Mueller investigation before the Dems take over the House.

Judd Legum @JuddLegum
Hours after the polls closed:

1. Trump fired Jeff Sessions

2. Removed Rosenstein from overseeing the Russia investigation

3. Installed Matt Whitaker to replace Sessions and oversee the Russia investigation. Whitaker has publicly stated that Mueller has exceeded his authority

There is really no other way to spin it: This is a cover-up and a Constitutional crisis.

Acosta should sue the president, and Americans should shun Sanders

By Jennifer Rubin
Opinion writer
November 8 at 10:31 AM

The White House revoked the press pass of and defamed CNN’s Jim Acosta, falsely accusing him of putting his hands on an intern. Press secretary Sarah Sanders accused Acosta of “placing his hands” on the intern. In fact, video shows conclusively that the woman tried to grab the microphone from his hands, and he held onto it:

President Trump’s conduct (Sanders surely didn’t do this on her own) violates every democratic norm one can think of — and what’s more, is illegal.

Further, Sanders has posted doctored video in an effort to discredit Acosta.

Absolute non-cooperation with Trump personnel and media control efforts should be the policy of all responsible news organizations, going forward.

Conway's husband in op-ed: Trump's appointment of Sessions replacement 'unconstitutional'

https://thehill.com/homenews/adminis...ns-replacement

Quote:
"President Trump's installation of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general of the United States after forcing the resignation of Jeff Sessions is unconstitutional," wrote Conway, along with lawyer Neal Katyal. "It's illegal. And it means that anything Mr. Whitaker does, or tries to do, in that position is invalid."

The point Conway makes seems constitutionally sound and controlling. Will be interesting to see what happens if it gets to the Supreme Court....

Napolitano: Acting AG ‘does not qualify under the law’ to take job

Even Fox “News” says it’s illegal, Donny. Where the hell are the Repubes in the Senate? They should be very vocally opposing this lawless act.
