- Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Flake (R-AZ) go on the record
Two Republican lawmakers have added their voices to opposite sides of the recent dialogue regarding Attorney General Jeff Sessions as President Trump (R-USA) took to Twitter, all since FreeMartyG’s rundown on the debate Friday morning.
Congressman Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) weighed in on Fox Business Network, saying, “The fact that Jeff Sessions has not quit is a disloyalty to this president and to the country. The fact is, if he disagrees with what the president wants him to do, he should resign.”
Representative Rohrabacher thereby joined Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and a largely unnamed but apparently growing group of GOP legislators who are either privately calling on President Trump to fire Sessions after the midterm elections this November or who appear to be supportive of that action.
Rohrabacher also previously tried to reach Trump with evidence from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange reportedly showing that Russia was not the source of the Clinton campaign emails that were published in the run up to election day in 2016. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly stopped the Congressman from getting to the Oval Office out of concern that “if I say one word to Trump about Russia, that it would appear to out-of-control prosecutors that that is where the collusion is,” Rohrabacher said.
Seemingly on the other side of the argument regarding Sessions, retiring Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ), said this morning that firing him “would be the first domino” to fall.
Flake thus joined a growing group of other GOP legislators who are publicly backing Sessions, at least for now.
Meanwhile, President Trump took to Twitter to encourage AG Sessions to investigate the as of yet unreviewed emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:
For her part, Clinton has been fundraising for Democratic candidates.
