WASHINGTON — Everybody in Washington knows that Donald Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, has irritated his boss.
Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation, which greatly irritated the current occupant of the White House. So Sessions offered to resign. And the man who demands total loyalty has not yet accepted Sessions' offer.
Sessions will testify on Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee, chaired by Sen. Richard Burr (R-North Carolina). He will be testifying about matters connected to the investigation into Russia’s massive interference in our 2016 presidential election.
No doubt, Democrats on the Committee will be questioning him about his relationship with Trump.
Associate solitary reporter Susanna Sherman accosted the former Alabama senator outside his office at the Justice Department. This is what the Attorney General said to Sherman: “Ah was very glad to help Mr. Trump win mah party’s nomination last year. While Ah still share many of his goals, Ah have decided to resign so I can run in the primary to get my seat in the Senate back. That way, Ah’ll be able to drink as much of Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky bourbon as Ah want.”
“Luther Strange is runnin’ for my old seat. But Ah am way more truly conservative than Luther is, and nobody in Alabama thinks Ah am strange. When I testify on Tuesday, Ah am gonna announce right from the start that Ah am resignin’ so I can reclaim my seat in the Senate.”
When Sherman told associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones of her conversation with Sessions, Jones went straight to White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and told him what Sherman had told her.
“Hot damn!” Bannon said. “Now we can put Kasowitz in there at Justice."
