Scoop: Besieged Sessions dines with Rosenstein in show of solidarity

Scoop: Besieged Sessions dines with Rosenstein in show of solidarity

If Donald Trump finally follows through on his rage and fires Jeff Sessions, the image with this story will be printed in history books.

Tonight at 7:35pm, the Attorney General strode into a high-end Washington restaurant to dine with his deputy Rod Rosenstein and the Solicitor General Noel Francisco.

The symbolism was unmistakable: the three top ranking officials in the Justice Department appearing together in a show of solidarity on the same day Trump is publicly and privately raging about Sessions.

When Trump sees this photo he'll have to absorb a concept that some of his aides have been trying to impress upon him for nearly a year, since he first began telling them he wanted to get rid of Sessions.

The concept: Fire Sessions, then what next? Are you going to fire Rosenstein too? And then what after that?

1. How many times has he been threatening firing Sessions

or at least leaking on purpose how unhappy he is with him? 7 or 8, I've lost count.

5. The little elf ain't been in politics this

6. Lemme see. Imagine if one were pissed at the boss. Imagine if one were protecting Mueller.

Imagine if one were cooperating with Mueller. Imagine if one were desperately protecting one's own ass. Imagine if one were inciting the boss to more stupidity.

11. Kelly begins his day at the WH by giving Trump a tranquilizer and reminding him

that Beau would be an invaluable addition to Mueller's conspiracy investigation.

10. Say what you want about Jeffie, I sure do

but all three of those folks are lawyers who have studied to some extent Constitutional Law, Founders' intent, jurisprudence. Even though they see the world a bit differently, they know the Republic and its sovereignty is at stake. And they know the source of the threat.
