The guys over at the American Greatness podcast suggest that the Trump v Sessions clash is a bit of Kabuki theatre. They point out that Trump doesn’t criticize employees, he fires them. They suggest that Sessions is quietly building cases while maintaining an air of independence, courtesy of Trump’s harping.

Any public investigation against the Democrats will be criticized and undermined constantly by the media; the adverse of their boosting and cheering for the moribund Mueller investigation.

A number of possibilities exist as to Sessions actions and non actions.
Sessions himself may be compromised and under some ominous threat that he is protecting himself .Coerced and blackmailed.
Another possibility is that Sessions has determined that the corruption is so deep and powerful that it would irrevocably destroy the Americans confidence in the justice system and government.
In either case , the Presidency is being attacked as all as the Constitution and he should resign immediately and allow so.done with capabilities to clean house.

Sara Carter has found the loophole that would allow the President to appoint a new AG right now:

“Trump Can Nominate a Previously Senate-Confirmed Appointee – In order for Trump to avoid having Rosenstein take over the helm of the Justice Department, he could look to the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998. According to Steve Vladeck, a professor of law at the University of Texas School of Law, the president “may direct anyone who holds a ‘PAS’ office — one requiring presidential appointment and Senate confirmation — to serve as Acting Attorney General for 210 days.” He continued by saying, “If the individual President Trump desires to serve as Sessions’ successor is Senate confirmable, then nothing would stop President Trump from simply nominating the successor and naming someone else as the short-term Acting Attorney General under the Vacancies Reform Act.”

Recess Appointment – A very politically challenging option but Trump could fire Sessions and at a time when the Senate is in recess for more than 10 days, could appoint a new Attorney General. This option would not require any Senate confirmation."

The question is…why hasn’t he done this?
