GOP senators: No Sessions replacement could get confirmed

Senate Republicans are in a jam when it comes to Jeff Sessions.

While resigned to President Donald Trump firing the attorney general after the midterm elections, they suspect that perhaps only a sitting senator could win confirmation as Sessions’ successor — that is, someone they could trust not to interfere with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. But no one from their ranks seems to want the job.

Republicans have the White House, Senate, House and Supreme Court and still are not in charge. Tell me again how voting makes a difference?

The big question is why Sessions wants the job? He has the title, but is not the actual AG.

Why do they even give a crap about Muellers investigation? "Oh, we certainly can't offend such a legitimate investigation. Ol Bob is such a great guy". They are more worried about that than the millions of illegal immigrants flooding our country. Says a lot about these people...

Mueller is the insurance policy, sessions is one of the firewalls?

Sessions isnt needed. The military is running the counter swamp op.

Besides, after the midterms we will have a supermajority in both houses. Trump will have a mandate to do Whatever he wants. MAGA

Nice that a President doesn't get to have his own preferred staff.  Why would Republicans want to block a Sessions replacement?  Why would they care?

This is way weird.

They don't have the will to do it. It's just an excuse. They can confirm anyone they wish if they stick together...but sadly they can't seem to do that.

I so agree with you here. I think originally Sessions wanted to be AG because it seemed so 'great and powerful'. Instead it turned out to be a royal pain, difficult and dangerous. The Democrats most likely have something on Sessions from his past (nothing to do with Russia or even Trump). Now Sessions is stuck and Trump is stuck with him.

That all said, if there's enough of an explosion over the stuff that Meadows, Jordan, Nunes are dragging out into the light this could change. Trump could also just go nuclear at some point (people with nothing to lose and all that). Politics is a very, very nasty business, but keep in mind Trump is not a push over 'nice guy'. Much of this depends upon things that we are simply not privy to.
