Rumors Are Going Around That Jeff Sessions Might Be Getting A New Job

There are rumors going around that Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be replacing the outgoing Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.

Kelly will leave his department in the hands of the current Deputy Secretary Elaine Duke and will take his new obligations as White House chief of staff. He will leave an empty chair in the Cabinet that Trump needs to fill.

Trump’s tweets over the past week indicate that there might be another empty chair in the Cabinet in the near future.

There are some rumors, which rely on the media understandings of some Trump statements coming from anonymous sources, that Trump desires to terminate special counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into the allegations that there was collusion between Trump campaign and Russians. Trump

But this might be more problematic than expected because Sessions recused himself from any investigations concerning Russia. So, the person who can fire Mueller is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who stated that he wouldn’t do that.

Also, there is another option for Trump to fire Mueller and that is to move Sessions and place a new attorney general who will terminate Mueller.

Dana Perino, who was a press secretary during the presidency of George W. Bush, stated that there is also a political gain for Trump in moving Sessions.

“Conservatives that came to Jeff Sessions’ defense this week all said, ‘But he’s doing the best on the issue we care about most and that is immigration.’ Well, where can Jeff Sessions do even more on immigration? As the secretary of Homeland Security,” Perino stated Friday on Fox News Channel’s The Five.

“And then, how can the conservatives complain? And then you have a new AG, (Trump) thinks, who can fire Mueller,” Perino stated.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C, who is intending to propose a bill that would enable Trump from terminating Mueller, doesn’t support the idea of Sessions being moved.

“AG Jeff Sessions has a good ring to it. Highly qualified, committed to the rule of law, tough on crime, and fiercely independent,” Graham wrote on Twitter, “DHS Secretary Jeff Sessions doesn’t sound right, doesn’t feel right. Bad idea.”

It seems like the Democrats don’t like this idea as well.

“To be clear: appointing Jeff Sessions to replace John Kelly at DHS to disrupt the Russia investigation would be met with MASS RESISTANCE,” Democrat Zac Petkanas tweeted Saturday.
