If Trump chooses to fire Jeff Sessions he will halt his damaging policies, while incriminating himself further, argues Trevor Timm of the Guardian. The decision to do so could give special prosecutor Mueller more ammunition over Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia. Crucially though, Sessions has introduced a harmful drug-enforcement campaign, backed excessive immigration policies and removing essential freedoms such as those of whistleblowers. Few candidates for attorney general could outdo Sessions in depressing Americans. Either way, firing him would slow down his policies, giving Democrats valuable time to counter them.
Jeff Sessions is the best attorney general the American people and the president could have asked for, holds Katherine Robertson of National Review. He proved his integrity and thorough devotion to following the law when he recused himself from the Russia investigation. The attorney general is a positive influence on both Trump’s cabinet and the Justice department. He has spread justice, punishing sanctuary cities, violent crime and illegal immigrants, while contributing to the improvement of America’s healthcare system. Sessions is a pillar of stability and democracy. He is a big asset to the country as a whole.
