The saga of the Jeff Sessions firing is fascinating.
I’ve heard many conservatives say that Sessions should not have been fired. And more so that president Trump should not have been so outwardly hostile to the man for recusing himself from involvement in the dinner theater that is the Mueller investigation.
But what was the president suppose to do? As I understand it, Jeff Sessions gave no indication that he would recuse himself prior to being appointed Attorney General. It was only after he was confirmed, that Sessions dropped that bombshell.
Trump had every right to be angry. Sessions should have told Trump ahead of the appointment so that president could make an informed decision to even nominate him. Trump could then have easily pulled the nomination in favor of someone else.
