Trump Leak: Giuliani Coming to Clean House… Dems’ Worst Nightmare Coming True
There is little question that some in the media love to drive wedges between President Donald Trump and those who surround and support him. As such, it was no surprise that reports of increasing friction between Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions are being played up in the media.
After Trump made the commonsense observation that he likely would have picked someone else for the job if he had known Sessions would recuse himself on the Russia investigation — which opened the door to the ever-expanding Special Counsel investigation — there are now reports that Trump is considering replacing Sessions with someone he had initially considered for the top spot at the Justice Department.
According to Axios, Trump has reportedly floated the idea among his inner White House circle of replacing Sessions with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, ostensibly to more aggressively investigate and potentially prosecute failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and other assorted “swamp” monsters in Washington.
A Monday morning tweet from the president seemed to indicate as much. “So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?” asked Trump.
Sessions could certainly be described as “beleaguered” — suffering or being subjected to constant or repeated trouble or harassment — though it has often been at the hands of Democrats rather than the president.
