Many people think the appointment of Jeff Sessions was a mistake. Chief among these people is President Trump, who nominated Sessions to be Attorney General in the first place.
But now there are rumblings from the Senate and from two senators who have not always been stalwart allies of Trump.
As President Donald Trump’s relationship with Attorney General Jeff Sessions continues to deteriorate, several key Republican Senators announced Thursday that they would support the president if he chooses to replace Sessions. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), both long-time colleagues of Sessions, told reporters Thursday that although Sessions has served the Justice Department with distinction, his lack of faith in the president and vice versa, has now become a distraction to the administration.
