  1. So much for some people saying that Sessions was Trump's 'secret weapon.'
    Well, one down, Hot Rod Rosenstein to go.
    Rosenstein thinks ..... or thought he was irremovable ...... but with Sessions gone, that block is out of the way.

  2. Sessions did his best to counter Trump while doing just enough to hold onto the office of AG. Actually, got to hand it to him, he played his cards quite smart ....... but now his career is over, so 'how smart is that'?
