As previously reported, Trump White House officials are considering replacing Jeff Sessions with Judge Roy Moore, installing the Attorney General back to his former Senate seat.
Last week the far left Washington Post accused Judge Moore of dating a 14 year-old girl in 1979 and all hell broke loose.
Judge Moore has denied the charges and says he’s going to reveal the motivations behind the WaPo hit piece in the next few days.
Republican swamp creatures are hitting Moore with coordinated attacks, says Steven Bannon.
In a desperate attempt to get rid of Moore, White House officials reportedly floated the idea that Jeff Sessions should go back to his Alabama Senate seat.
New York Times reported:
One idea now being discussed under this scenario, brought up by two different White House officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, would be for Gov. Kay Ivey of Alabama to immediately appoint Attorney General Jeff Sessions to what had been his seat when it becomes vacant again. Mr. Sessions remains highly popular among Alabama Republicans, but his relationship with President Trump has waned since he recused himself from the investigation of the role that Russia played in last year’s campaign.
No dice says a DOJ official…
The Daily Caller reported a DOJ official and another source close to Sessions both shot down the idea that the attorney general wants to return to his Senate seat.
So if Jeff Sessions doesn’t want to be a Senator again, can he at least do his job as Attorney General?
