Default Trump Lashes Out /Jeff Sessions resigns

In the aftermath he's acting scared as hell
Trump Lashes Out During Combative Press Conference
Quote:
In an extraordinarily combative news conference Wednesday after voters delivered him a rebuke by giving control of the House to Democrats, President Trump went after Republicans, Democrats and the media.
https://www.npr.org/2018/11/07/66518...t=nprml&f=1001
Quote:
He mocked Republican candidates who distanced themselves from him, chided a reporter for asking a "racist question," and walked away from the lectern at one point, as an aide tried to wrest a microphone out of a reporter's hands.
Quote:
Trump said that if Democrats try to use their majority to issue subpoenas, it would be a "war-like posture."


Quote:
He said that he could work with Democrats on issues such as infrastructure and health care, but that if they conduct investigations into his administration, "then we're going to do the same thing, then government comes to a halt and I blame them."

Trump suggested he will use the Senate to conduct his investigations.


really?

Quote:
The president name-checked several GOP candidates who lost Tuesday. He said that Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, "gave me no love, and she lost. Too bad, sorry about that Mia." He said Barbara Comstock, who lost her suburban Virginia district, "didn't want to have any embrace."

Trump said Tuesday's results were "very close to a complete victory," despite Republicans losing control of the House. The GOP did add to its majority in the Senate.

Earlier Wednesday, he praised House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi while warning Democrats against investigating his administration.
Quote:
Trump said that he was considering changes to his administration in the aftermath of the election, including to his cabinet.

Shortly after his news conference ended, Trump tweeted that he had accepted the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who will be replaced by Sessions' chief of staff Matthew G. Whitaker.
Quote:
In another tweet on Wednesday morning, Trump issued a threat to Democrats, saying that if they "think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we likewise will be forced to consider investigating them for all the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level." He added, "Two can play that game!"
no Mr president I don't think the Senate will play that game

Libs won the House and less than 24 hours later they're already sayin' they wanna subpoena Trump's tax returns and revive the fictional Russia collusion conspiracy theory.

Got that? Libs' top priorities are Trump's tax returns and Russia collusion. Not the economy, infrastructure, jobs, etc. Nope. They wanna play partisan politics and use their power solely to attack Trump.

Scumbags. All of 'em.

And here's the Leftwing Huffington Post...

Democrats Are Going To Get Trump’s Tax Returns If They Win The House

And here's the Leftwing Associated Press...

US Rep. Neal: Democrats plan to ask for Trump tax returns

Russia invesigations ramped up?...

Here's the Leftwing CNN again...

Schiff: House Intel will ramp up probe of Trump's Russia ties if Dems take the House

And here's the Leftwing NBC...

Here come the subpoenas: What House Democrats plan for their Russia probe

And here's the Leftwing CNET...

Sessions resigns - almost 2 years too late.

While I think Jeff Sessions is an honorable person and is probably doing what he feels is right, he was neglecting his job by trying to appease the Democrats in Washington. He should have never recused himself from the Russia investigation and thereby should have placed himself in charge of the Mueller investigation to reign it in after over a year with nothing pertaining to Russian collusion was found.

Disagree...

He should've told Trump he would recuse himself BEFORE Trump even nominated him...Bypassing the whole ordeal...

I find it reprehensible for Sessions to get nominated, go through hearings and a vote, get confirmed, and THEN say "Oh, by the way...I won't be overseeing a multi-million dollar investigation with a special prosecutor, which is the biggest public thing right now."...
