On Thursday, Jeff Sessions announced that he is running for his Senate seat in Alabama, which is currently held by a Democrat. He also seemed to be wanting to advertise his allegiance to Trump by endorsing him for 2020 and for lambasting Republicans in the Senate for not doing enough to further the Trump agenda. Sessions had given up his Senate seat to become the Attorney General. He became the most AWOL AG in United States history, deferring to the will of Rod Rosenstein. Many consider the appointment of Jeff Sessions to be the biggest mistake in the Trump presidency.
As soon as he took office, the first thing Sessions did was recuse himself and allowed Rod Rosenstein to appoint dirty cop Robert Mueller as Special Counsel, who spent 22 months and over 25 million dollars to find out that Trump was innocent of collusion. He did leave the Democrats an opening to the possibility of obstruction of justice charges despite the fact there was no underlying crime. I worry that he would, if elected, become a partner in crime with Mitt Romney.
Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions followed his confirmation of entry into the Alabama Senate race by calling out Senate Republicans for “not pushing hard enough to advance” President Donald Trump’s agenda.
Appearing on Thursday night’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, the former Alabama senator expressed no regret for his rocky tenure at the Department of Justice before expressing that he still has “something to give.”
After Carlson played Sessions’ recently released campaign ad, the former attorney general reiterated his support for President Trump and his policies, particularly on immigration, trade, and foreign policy.
“I was the first Republican senator to endorse him,” said Sessions. “We pushed the immigration agenda, his trade agenda, and began to work for a more realistic foreign policy that does not get us in endless wars. I think he was right about all three of those. That’s where the American people are, and this Republican Congress, and the whole Congress needs to listen to that.”
