Lindsey Graham made a prediction this morning on the Hugh Hewitt Show, saying that Sessions will step down after the elections and that we’ll have a new AG soon thereafter:
HH: Now a last question, there’s a Post story today about change was coming in Team Trump. Would Lindsey Graham accept a Cabinet spot? Or do you want to run Judiciary?
LG: I’m staying right where I’m at. And people ask me about being Attorney General and other jobs. I will be in the NBA before I leave the Senate. And I don’t like my chances.
LG: In the NBA.
HH: As for, I think Attorney General Sessions is going to step down. I want Mike Luttig, the general counsel of Boeing, the former 4th Circuit, do you think he’d get through the Senate?
LG: Yeah, I’ve known Mike for, you know, I wanted him to be on the Supreme Court. There are so many good choices. Jeff probably will step down. We’ll have a new attorney general, most likely early next year. And we’re just going to run hard in ’19 and ’20 to you know, keep this thing going. And at the end of the day, I think President Trump has delivered. I like his chances of getting reelected. I still want to work with my Democratic colleagues to solve problems, but I’ve never been more pissed than I am right now about the way Kavanaugh was treated. And I’m going to remind everybody between now and Tuesday what’s at stake here.
I’ve said before that while I generally support Sessions, it’s clear he doesn’t have the president’s support and for that reason alone he needs to step down. The friction has been going on too long, just like the Russia investigation that has come to pretty much nothing. No matter how good a job Sessions feels he’s doing, he should step down after the election is over and allow Trump to have an AG he supports.
No idea who that might be, but it won’t be Lindsey Graham according to what he said above. And also, I do like he’s still talking about Kavanaugh. The Democrats sure have stopped talking about him – perhaps because they’ve been exposed as frauds.
