What are the chances that Sessions will resign in the next 30 days.

I'm pessimistic. I think nothing will happen until we regain control of house or senate. Still not even sure that will be enough. However, I have a strange feeling about Sessions. That feeling is that he is smart enough to get out before the poop really hits the fan to save his own hide. So I want to believe he will resign soon.

My thoughts are therefore conflicted. What is your opinion?

1. it's possible

sessions is an experienced politician so if he feels the ship is sinking, he may as well depart. Now more than ever trump's relationships with sessions is tainted. He was hired for one purpose - to protect trump and he recused himself from doing just that. Let the administration destroy itself from within. No remotely qualified person will work for trump especially after the testimony.

7. That is my thinking in a nutshell

If Sessions bails we can assume 1or 2 things. Trump is screwed and or Jeffrey B. is scared.

2. Geez, who freakin' knows anymore....

I cannot even make an educated supposition.

I am not a gambling man at all, I despise gambling in fact....

And any call by myself or others on the outside as we are is surely likened to gambling.

The bad part about using gambling as an analogy, is that the commercial model of said activity is based on the fact that the house always wins!

3. Depends on what the closed sessions revealed about him

For sure, he will get called back to testify before the senate and/or house committees. He has already lied twice. Three times is the charm, so they say. I know we all want this nightmare over, but we must practice patience. Patience is a virtue.

I want the nightmare to be over and the lot of the fascists in jail!

12. republican bad corrupt juju karma has been building up for decades

So it takes time to unpack all the twists and turns that brought all this bad karma to ripen. What helps me with maintaining a little patience is the knowledge that with each passing day, more and more crimes of truly corrupt republicans will be discovered and a case built for prosecution. Let's give Mueller as much time as necessary to catch as many of them as possible. Justice is also a virtue.

Hopefully Lyin Ryan and McConnell will get snared too!

4. Minimal, I think

Sessions was chosen for a reason, and I don't think he's had a chance to deliver whatever quo his appointment quid was supposed to yield. Sessions gave up a very cushy and safe Senate seat which is now long gone, so there's nowhere for him to land. Trump still needs Sessions to do something for him, and Sessions doesn't have any soft landing spot if he bails. So both of them have good reason to sit tight.

All this goes out the window, of course, if there's some new revelation of Sessions' corruption, which is totally in the realm of probability. But for now, Sessions isn't going anywhere, is my take.

9. My take on the quo is obviously to squash Dump investigations.

Dump is angry because Sessions is failing to make the investigation go away. This gives me pleasure knowing that Donnie is probably boiling with rage.

13. I think his quo was sabotaged by Rosenstein appointing Mueller

Don't forget, Rosenstein did this without Sessions' and Trumps' knowledge while they were in a meeting. They found out about on the news I think. If that's true Rosenstein did a bit of trolling on behalf of Comey there.

15. I can't figure out Rosenstein.

My gut tells me he is a weasel, but I remember Sally Yates saying that she had confidence in him. He certainly opened up a can of worms for the Trump crew by appointing Mueller. I still can't figure out why I don't trust Rosenstein???

17. I think distrust is a good thing

however, he may be in CYA mode now and doesn't want to go down with the ship. I'm sure he knows the history of Watergate and its implications.

11. Only after he has a safe landing lined up

Don't think he can slide back into his Senate seat.

If he does it beforehand, then it would be some sort of deal to avoid prison or revelation of something truly jifrpus.

16. Not unless resignation saves him from going to Prison

 

He has given up a cushy Senate job for this only months ago. He's not willingly going unless he has no other choice
