Beauregard takes a lickin’, and the clock keeps tickin’!

From HUFFPO:

WASHINGTON ― Attorney General Jeff Sessions dismissed speculation that he would be resigning from his position following scathing criticism from President Donald Trump.

Sessions said it was an “honor” to serve as attorney general and that his team “wholeheartedly” shares the priorities of the Trump administration.

Tick, tick, tick……

Trump told The New York Times on Wednesday that he wouldn’t have chosen Sessions for the post if he had known Sessions was going to recuse himself from the FBI’s probe into Russian election meddling. Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation following revelations about his conversations last year with the Russian ambassador.

…snip…

Sources told CNN and the Times that Sessions offered to resign earlier this year. According to ABC, Trump reportedly went “ballistic” after he found out Sessions was recusing himself. In June, White House press secretary Sean Spicer declined to say if Trump still had confidence in the attorney general.

 

However, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders affirmed later on Thursday that Trump “has confidence” in Sessions.

Trump also criticized Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in the Times interview, appearing to know very little about the man he nominated to take over the critical No. 2 role in the Justice Department. Trump complained that Rosenstein is from Baltimore and said there are “very few Republicans in Baltimore, if any.” Rosenstein, in fact, is originally from Philadelphia, and has lived in the D.C. suburb of Bethesda, Maryland, for years.

…snip…

In his interview with the Times, Trump also would not rule out firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is heading the independent Russia investigation. Trump could not fire Mueller directly, but could order Rosenstein to do so, at which point the deputy attorney general would be forced to make a choice between resigning or carrying out the president’s order.

Trump’s criticism of Sessions, Rosenstein, and Mueller place all of them in precarious positions. Trump has admitted that he was thinking about the Russia probe when he fired former FBI Director James Comey. And former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates was fired shortly after she warned the White House about former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s untruthfulness about his ties to Russia.

…tick, tick, tick………

  1. As the Germans say the scheisse is getting awfully deep. Model T cares about no one except himself as you have previously written, The man has more damn gall. If fires Mueller he is really going to mess up- same thing with Sessions. For Pete’s sake what is the GOP thinking? None of those people are making any kind of move to get rid of this disaster. He runs his mouth off to a newspaper that he said was washed up and that was full of fake news. I bet the NYT is laughing in its sleep. Fingers are pointing heavily at most of his aides and some appointees and he keeps lying and denying. It’s a circus and I remain in disbelief.

    • Well, it looks like Twitler’s buddies in Russia are helping to get rid of Beauregard after he had the nerve not to resign after his boss dissed him in The New York Times.I don’t think Twitler is smart enough to have relayed to the Russians to spread some more dirt about Little Beau, but I wouldn’t put it past some others in the White House. I bet they all walk around looking over their shoulders.

    Homeless old broad appreciates a warn place to lay her head even if it means cuddling with the Alabama elf. But I swear I’ll deck him if he makes a move ala the Trumper. Thanks for leaving the light on. Love you.

  3. the loony tic

    apparently, a president means being a ‘don.’ the revolving employment door will continue to spin as long as his thugs show that they have minds of their own. only yes-men need apply.

    • Have you seen Twitler’s new guy, Loony? He came from The Soprano’s central casting office! 😆 As soon as he was introduced during the presser today, I thought to myself, there’s a goombah if i ever saw one. The hair, the suit, the manner–he was a walking stereotype. I expect this administration to end with a juke box in a diner playing “Don’t Stop Believin'”…fade to black. Hopefully, it will be before the nuclear war, not after. 😮

  4. This one must hold the record for the number of Confederate flags included — I see five. But why the fudge-stripes cookies? I wouldn’t think Sessions would go for an “integrated” confection.

    • How quickly we forget, Infidel. I put the cookies in there especially for you, because I knew you would notice them. It was either put the cookies on the shelf or put Beauregard’s Ernie elf hat on him. You know how i love subtlety! 😉
