War on Drugs Fan and Voting Rights Enemy Jeff Sessions May Headed Toward the Door


First there was yet another loud vote of “no confidence” from the White House aimed squarely at Attorney Jeff Sessions.

It appeared in the New York Times on July 20.  During an interview with the Times, President Trump said he would not have selected Sessions for the job of Attorney General had he known Sessions was going to recuse himself from the Russia investigation.

Then, the next day, The Washington Post reported they had a source who informed them that Sessions was heard on a Russian surveillance tape speaking with Russian officials about the 2016 elections.

Conservative Hugh Hewitt said that, “If it’s true, I think the Attorney General would have to resign… that is the end for AG Sessions.”

During his short time as Attorney General, Sessions has attempted to revive parts of the war on drugs and hasn’t intervened to protect voting rights.
