Democrats Just Took The Fight To Trump And Said No On This Sneaky Backdoor Change

As the door that is Trump’s administration continues to revolve, Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) says the Senate Judiciary Committee is exploring means to block President Trump from appointing an acting attorney general to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions during the August recess.

Senator Durbin said on MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber that he is concerned Trump’s increasingly hostile stance on Sessions is because of Russia. Last week, President Trump told the New York Times “Sessions should’ve never recused himself and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job… and I would’ve picked somebody else.”

Durbin told Ari Melber, “The real reason behind it… is all about trying to dissemble the Bob Mueller investigation.”

Melber asked the Senator whether he wanted Mitch McConnell and the Senate to avoid going into a full recess. “Yes, if that’s what it takes. I think it’s that important. If we don’t stand for the principle that no one in this country is above the law, then what are we?”

We’re exploring the ways right now,” Durbin said on MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber. The idea this president would use the August recess to stop the investigation of the Russian impact on the election and his campaign is unacceptable.”

Senator Durbin declined to offer details when Melber pushed on how they plan to prevent any attempt by Trump to replace Sessions, telling Melber that what he’d already told him was “as much as I can tell you at this moment.”
