As more Trump cronies become convicted felons, Republicans know what to do: Shut investigations down

Of course, Trump routinely rails against Sessions for not controlling the Mueller investigation, and there can be no doubt that the primary qualification Trump wouid seek in a replacement would be the willingness to shut Mueller down. And Graham made clear that he thinks Trump should wait until after the election before replacing Sessions. In other words, if the Democrats don’t win at least one House of Congress this November, the Trump crime syndicate, and its controller in Moscow, will prevail in destroying the republic. It’s that simple.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is ready. He previously said he didn’t have time for another confirmation hearing, but no longer.

“I do have time for hearings on nominees that the president might send up here that I didn’t have last year,” Grassley of Iowa said Thursday in a telephone interview. Grassley has clashed with Sessions this year because of the attorney general’s intense opposition to Grassley’s efforts to pass a criminal justice overhaul.

Of course, he said confirming Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh takes precedence. Because installing the choice of an unindicted co-conspirator on the nation’s highest court is that important. Particularly when said choice is on the record opposing criminal charges against sitting presidents, and full vetting of his background can be prevented.
