Attorney General Jeff Sessions spent months as the central figure in the Washington rumor mill.
Pundits and elected officials speculated about when Donald Trump would fire him.
Now one Republican senator dropped a major hint about Sessions’ future in the Trump administration.
Donald Trump held off on firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions because of the Mueller probe.
Congress could have interpreted Trump firing Sessions as a move to put in a loyalist who will shut Mueller down.
That could lead to an impeachment crisis.
But with Mueller looking like he is wrapping up his work, Sessions could be on the way out.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham appeared on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show and predicted that Sessions would resign and the Senate would confirm a new Attorney General early next year.
On Monday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) predicted that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will likely resign in early 2019 and said he isn’t interested in taking the attorney general job.
Graham responded to a question on whether he would take a spot in the Cabinet by saying, “I’m staying right where I’m at. People ask me about being attorney general and other jobs. I will be in the NBA before I leave the Senate. And I don’t like my chances.”
He added, “Jeff probably will step down. We’ll have a new attorney general, most likely early next year.”
Many Trump supporters believe Sessions overstayed his welcome.
Not only did his recusal pave the way for the Mueller investigation, but Sessions has not brought criminal charges against Deep State agents caught red-handed committing crimes in the conspiracy to destroy Donald Trump.
A new Attorney General would allow Trump to make good on his promise to drain the swamp by holding rogue government officials accountable.
