CNN - Politics: Reports " Trump wants Sessions gone. But he doesn't want to swing the proverbial sword. He wants to make Sessions' life so uncomfortable that Sessions throws up his hands and walks away. "
Lets Get Real:
This could be POTUS being sneaky, he wants the AG to go but does not want to be seen as a hatched man, the idea one can postulate is that POTUS wants the AG to get fed up and leave, then POTUS would hire a new Attorney General, one who would run the Russian investigation and keep the Oval Office informed of any developments. The Democrats have a problem, they have complained that the AG did not inform them of ALL his Russian meetings, on the other hand they do not want to allow POTUS to chose a new AG. The Democrats still have not got a a smoking gun over Russia, and if they place too much pressure on the AG they could be helping POTUS. This is a reality show on the big stage, and Trump is the Master of that form.
