Had you told me two years ago that when trump canned sessions it would be leftists who flipped their shit i would have called you crazy.
Of course not. Either you don't want to or you can't.
Trump waited until after the midterms to do this. Immediately after. That alone should tell you something...
Trump knew that if he pulled this obvious move before the midterms it could sour some people on voting Republican. Trump's intention is clearly to get rid of Sessions, who wouldn't do what Trump wanted against Mueller, and put somebody in Sessions place who would act against Mueller.
Trump picked a guy who had already been talking openly about such plans...
Matthew Whitaker has been appointed acting attorney General after Jeff Sessions resigned Wednesday at President Trump’s request. And suddenly, Whitaker’s past skepticism about the Russia investigation has taken on new significance.
“So I could see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced with a recess appointment,” Whitaker said, “and that attorney general doesn’t fire Bob Mueller, but he just reduces his budget to so low that his investigation grinds to almost a halt.”
It was the second time in the same interview, in fact, that Whitaker brought up the defunding idea. He said Rosenstein could also be pressured to do it.Trump’s new acting attorney general once mused about defunding Robert Mueller
THAT is why we're angry.
