Flake says Senate does not want Trump to fire Sessions

August 27, 2018

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) said on Sunday that the Senate, as a body, does not want President Trump to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“There may be a few isolated voices saying that the president ought to fire him now, I can tell you as a body we’re saying, ‘Please don’t,’ ” he told Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“He serves at the pleasure of the president, we all know that, but I think it would be a big mistake for the president to fire him now.”

The comments came after Todd played two clips of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) giving interviews. In the first, from last year, Graham said there will be “holy hell to pay” if Sessions is fired. But in a second interview, he said last week that “the president is entitled to an attorney general he has faith in.”

    Flake should try to remember who he is suppose to serve. He forgot that a long time ago. The people in Arizona wanted the illegal invasion stopped but Flake along with his mentor McCain cared more about the illegals crossing into the US than the people who elected them. They serve another constituency. You could always count on Flake & McCain to thumb his nose at the people of Arizona. They were both more revered by the democrats than by the true conservatives of the GOP. McCain held his infamous thumbs down on the health care bill reform. It’s just a shame that he didn’t resign his senate seat sooner so that we could have passed more legislation without his liberal spin on it. Neither Flake or McCain had the best interests of the US at heart.
