Thank You Again, President Trump

Your choice for Attorney General has refused to behave like Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch. Thank you.

President Trump deserves a ton of credit for picking Jeff Sessions as his Attorney General. Conservatives blasted both Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch for too often considering the politics of a situation that they let down the rule of law.

As President Trump himself noted on Twitter over Labor Day, Jeff Sessions has refused to consider the political implications in indicting two Republican members of Congress in the run up to the midterms. If this were the Obama Administration, we cannot be sure his Attorney General would have done the same.

But Jeff Sessions has risen to the occasion and shown that an Attorney General should never consider the politics of an action, but instead consider the rule of law. He is your pick, Mr. President, and we are better as a nation because of it.

Thank you for putting in place an Attorney General who puts the rule of law first.

Some of Trumps comments about Sessions have been inappropriate. But Sessions had far less of a good reason to recuse himself then the clearly biased FBI agents who were leading the investigations of Hillary and Trump. Erick believes in the principle of the rule of law, and that is a good thing. But for there to be a true rule of law, it has to apply to all people equally, and there is a lot of evidence that our countries current version of the rule of law does not do that.

Trumps problem is not with Sessions specifically, but with his not reigning in a justice department that has clear signs of bias, with lead FBI agents who clearly hated Trump, and with the stalling and inappropriate redaction of documents requested by Congressional investigations. For there to be a rule of law, it cant just be applicable to those who hate Trump and seek to remove him from office by means other than the 2020 election.

I thought Jeff Sessions was a good choice for the AG spot. I did not understand why had to recuse himself from the Russia probe, but in hindsight nothing he was to do would have been accepted by the Democrats or the press with the Russia hysteria. I think Jeff Sessions is an honest man which is a rarity among politicians. So far, he has done nothing to dispel that belief. He seems dedicated to following the rule of law. However, I do wonder about how slow the DOJ has been about cleaning house and slow responding to Congress's requests for information. All must remember that the DOJ is part of the Executive Branch and theoretically President can tell them what to do. The DOJ is not an independent Agency as most Democrats and media would to us think. Jeff Sessions's response could be to resign if Donald Trump told him do something he did not do. Given all the recent hullabaloo, I just wonder about the relationship Trump and Sessions really have. Are they playing bad cop and good cop? Just remember that what Trump tweets is often quite different from he does. Who knows what's going on?

No, sorry. He doesn't deserve any credit because the decision was based on what he thought was Sessions' loyalty to him. When he found out the loyalty wasn't there like he wanted it to be, he wanted Sessions out. I am thankful the decision was made, but Trump deserves no credit.

I didn't think the party that won in large part to Democrat corruption is delving so deep into corruption themselves. Everything that they said about Clinton applies here. The AG didn't get them indicted, they did that themselves with their corruption. I didn't think corruption was going to sink Trump but here we are.

EE you could have given cudos for the president brushing his teeth every day and been as enlightening. Correcting ProfB, the whole opinion is a dig. Appointing an honest person isnt the only type of act that makes an effective President. He/She has to get in the fight; something which offends EE.
