I like Jeff Sessions, I think he is a smart man and a fair man. But his performance as Attorney General of the United States was a huge disappointment. Mueller, Rosenstein, Strzok, Page, Ohr, all of them seemed immune to prosecution and seemed able to actually continue to pull the government levers of power, even after clearly abusing those levers. Maybe Sessions just got too old.
Maybe he really thought reclusing himself from the most important case the AG could handle was a good idea. Maybe the Democrats obviously rigged a primary election and conspired to spy on a candidate — but there was no physical evidence — other than what everybody in the country could see, sitting right there in front of them.
It’s very confusing. I’m not sure what happened with Jeff Sessions but I am sure, it was time for him to move on.
