Dems who once demanded Trump fire Jeff Sessions now want him investigated for firing Sessions

For the first two years of the Trump presidency, Democratic lawmakers and their water carriers in the media never tired of demanding that he fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “If Trump wants to fire Jeff Sessions, let him – it would be a gift to America,” blared a headline in The Guardian in July. By September, the natives had grown restless, judging from the title of a post by CNN’s Chris Cillizza, which asked, “Why the hell hasn’t Donald Trump just fired Jeff Sessions?”

So now that the president has finally gone ahead and given Sessions his walking papers, is the Left happy? Foolish question. The Left is never happy unless they are in charge of government. And since that’s not the case, they now want Trump’s blood.

Soon after word came that Sessions was out, Democratic minority leader Nancy Pelosi tweeted:

Trending: Ocasio-Cortez declines invitation to visit concentration camps, but her reason is lame

Her counterpart in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, expressed similar concerns:

Ditto for Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner:

Nor are Democrats at all pleased with the president’s interim replacement for AG, Matthew Whitaker, whom Trump chose over Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein. They are now demanding that Whitaker recuse himself from the Mueller investigation and urging Congress (again in the words of Nancy Pelosi) to “take immediate action to protect the rule of law and integrity of the investigation.”
