Gunning For The Hot Seat – Is Jeff Sessions Out, Judge Jeanine Pirro In?

Judge Jeanine Pirro is apparently looking to get back into jurisprudence, and her return would be at the highest level possible — the position of attorney general.

According to a report from Politico, the popular Fox News host and former Westchester County, New York district attorney and judge is looking to replace Jeff Sessions at the head of the Justice Department.

“A former prosecutor and judge, Pirro has repeatedly told Trump’s aides and advisers over the past 18 months that she’s interested in taking over as the nation’s top law enforcement official, according to four people familiar with the conversations,” Politico reported Thursday.

“Trump has dangled the possibility of giving her a top appointment. During a November meeting in the Oval Office, the president raised the possibility of nominating Pirro to a federal judgeship, according to a former administration official, though this person added that Trump was more likely engaging in flattery than seriously considering putting Pirro on the bench.”

Her Fox News colleagues have apparently “laughed” at her prospects at getting a senior position within the Trump administration.

However, as Politico points out, the president has “demonstrated a penchant for bringing cable news stars into his administration — most recently tapping CNBC commentator Larry Kudlow to be his top economic adviser.”

It’s a pick like that which might actually prove that Judge Jeanine could be moving from the TV to the Justice Department, although the move would generate quite a few eyebrow-raises.

That said, we’ve seen signs that Attorney General Sessions probably oughtn’t be making Labor Day plans in Washington D.C. The president has been extremely critical of Sessions over his decision to recuse himself from anything involving the Russia investigation, which has opened the administration up to the Mueller circus.

In fact, the president made it clear (yet again) he wouldn’t have chosen Sessions had he known about his meetings with then-Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergey Kislyak.

“The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax continues, all because Jeff Sessions didn’t tell me he was going to recuse himself…I would have quickly picked someone else,” Trump tweeted Wednesday. “So much time and money wasted, so many lives ruined…and Sessions knew better than most that there was No Collusion!”

And, if Trump wants someone who is going to speak out perfervidly in support of the administration, there’s few who would match Judge Jeanine for that task. Take a look at her eviscerating take on establishment Republicans who more or less forced the White House’s hand on the omnibus:

Given that this is a DOJ that’s hemmed and hawed on documents related to its investigations during the 2016 election of both the Clinton email scandal and the Trump campaign, and has recently been seen potentially offering a plea deal to former Democrat IT specialist Imran Awan over financial misdoings, you can imagine a more aggressive approach under a Pirro-led DOJ. And, above all, she wouldn’t have to recuse herself on matters relating to the Russia investigation.

However, a firing of Sessions could rankle many Republicans. The former Alabama senator was the first in the upper chamber to endorse the president at a time when it was considered by the media to be tantamount to career suicide and Trump’s path to the nomination was far from secure. He gave up what was essentially a lifetime seat in the Senate to join the administration, a seat which fell to the Democrats in a special election after the Roy Moore debacle.

The president is big on loyalty and wants it from other Republicans; that would be difficult from a recalcitrant Senate if Sessions — a well-respected federal prosecutor before he came to the Senate — is summarily dismissed for a cable TV lawyer.

If Pirro has trouble getting confirmed by the Senate, that would likely be a major blow for the Trump administration. Even if her nomination is approved, a significant investiture of time would derail other judicial nominees whose appointment could be more beneficial to conservative goals in the longer term. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already canceled the traditional August recess to sort through the backlog before the midterms. The Democrats are bound to slow down Pirro’s nomination if they can, just as they’ve been doing to judicial candidates. All they need is a few skeptical Republicans to kill it entirely.

Could Pirro be the next head at the DOJ? Stranger things have happened, and Trump’s appointment of Larry Kudlow has indicated he’s willing to consider talent from the media pool. Pirro’s been by Trump’s side since the beginning and has been particularly critical of Sessions, who she’s called “the most dangerous man in America.” She’s most known for giving opening statements on her show, but her comments on Sessions could end up being a closing argument that the president can’t resist.

    in all honesty, Where I live having a mixed kid seems to be treated a bit like an exclusive token to being part of a more exciting, Cosmopolitan/ global operating lifestyle promise. These moms don want to raise basic white country potatoes akin privately, They raising the forthcoming. They easily spotted because they remember to tell everyone all about it. They raising a globalized super breed with bilingual abilities, Multi optional sexual, Families inside continents, Perfectly tailored to the flexible demands of an international job market thanks to no sense of belonging and lack of cultural identity to tie them to a single country

    Being white and basic is not an inspiring identity nowadays. There is is very low trend capital in just being a regular white country person like these moms are. I wouldn know what these moms would chat about if they had just regular kids. Biracial kids are indeed a project for some.

    It no coincidence that ww date out more than anyone else. company! To whatever you said above. they are now going so far as to monetize the biracial experience through haircare groups and videoes as well as merch like t shirts that glorify race mixing.

    Its horrible. Because they do this all while raising completely unaware children who go out into the world projecting this anti poc unicorn like attitude them to be literally the best of both.

    Common_loon99 2 points downloaded 19 days ago

    this is why. I think they’ll just want best for their kids. In our weird wold where so much value is placed on marketing you to ultimately be memorable, Being unique and individual is social capital. Their line of thinking might be that their kids will benefit from looking exotic and or having an different background, Fully assuming their kids will be some sort of plus (Having white privilege but with a dash of spice sprinkled in to exceed)

    And there are moms who seem to live vicariously through their child From my observations, There are distinctive secondary gains to be made from having a biracial child if you just a basic white parent. shortly, You the main ever present race discussion as you raising a non white child. It affords you access to community (just like you said) And victimhood by proxy which can give you a powerful purpose in life your own bland identity wouldn supply you with!

    These moms might be motivated by purpose and creating a more interesting identity on a self-employed basis.

    Abusive and racist are traits that seem to overlap most of the time though. it’s wise as toxic people tend to look down on others to elevate their sense of self. Racism might present as an opportune concept to affirm their sense of superiority. it could be def. Unfortunate to encounter this mix in your close family.

    There is little point in analyzing whether see your face is just abusive or racist, As if it was some kind of correct labeling. It doesn matter kinds of poison it is. They are not beneficial to your mental health and that all you have to know. Don make excuses for many years.

    You’ll hardly likely see the judgement that one culture is worse than another though. Or don’t? it feel right saying so (because only racists do ) But from a humanitarian aspect, I feel it seemingly justified to say that some cultures suck. (For weak groups) Maybe you could argue that’s my westernised view but I can’t really consider a culture with built in misogyny more positively. I don’t really relate to the pride others have about their heritage unless I base it on superficial folkloristic elements perhaps. I’m far from glorifying my other culture either but it is a fairer society in many ways.

    It comes from what it is you want that criticism to achieve. If it a question of social change in the interest of people living in specific countries, Then there plenty of evidence that many cultures continue to reflect on the positive and negative elements of their heritage, And are researching to move forward to address social ills. Many are doing this for their own end, Without the necessity for even more westerners to come in and paternalistically tell them how much better the west is because the west figured out that slavery is bad and that maybe owning your wife like property isn great (After having profited from these policies since then).

    If the stage that the criticism is that some cultures are just always going to be “safer” merely check the boxes that you feel make them that way, Then no one halting you, But you not likely to get a lot of support away from social circles who already feel anyone not of their ethnic group is inherently inferior.

    You sound quite offended. I go along with you on western imperialism, Racism and the colonial tyranny it has riddled vast parts of the world with that still have trouble with the aftermath in a myriad ways. It sounds like you chose to read the post as saying other cultures suck as their countries are inferior which is not what I’m saying. They cant afford tending to the fine tuned luxuries of human rights or children’s rights as much as we can in our saturated stable societies because they still have to prioritise survival and have a sea of other stuff to deal with, while the fallout from colonisation. this isn’t going to change in a lifetime. which is all.

    Halle berry in fact? Alicia kys? Beyonc? Tons of mixed black people age with dignity. Not sure if you’re a man or a woman but I know lipstick alley is a toxic website that absolutely haaaates mixed black/light skin women because of “Colorism” So of course they say that because it makes them feel better about themselves.

    the reality is that white people only age faster because a lot like of them to fry themselves under the sun. More would age better if they stopped sun tanning and chinese girl used some spf. So wear sunscreen and try to avoid the sun.

    I’m a 23F mixed black female and I constantly get told that I look younger than I am to the point where it causes some comedic misunderstanding at restaurants and casinos.

    sure, I don fully grasp. I spent in the Bronx.

    Hip hop is made here, And throughout 30 years, Has basically become as known as any other kind of music and culture, upon entire planet. at the beginning, There was a particular style and culture, And it evolved some in the long term, And this is why, predominantly blacks and hispanics were the b boys, But had been whites in the mix as well. Eventually asians and anyone who, And pretty sure, It was a bit weird when it exploded into non urban areas of the nation. But guess what happens? It ok. women loved the style, And loved the subculture, And it became a window into a world that men and women didn even know existed. No one owns a community. Culture is manufactured, adjusts, and either grow, Or fades away over time. you are angry that Italians took spaghetti from China, You can be angry parents wanna learn english. you could end up angry that non asians want to explore Buddhism, Or pilates, And you are able to angry that anyone wants to explore any culture, period of. It a total waste.

    Maybe case my experience but I wouldn limit it to white people. I grew up up visiting 80%+ black schools and spent lots of time in heavily diverse nerd communities. Lots of maladjusted blerds have similar outlook and do the same things as white men. I couldn count the dollar amount of black samurais I played D with or how many aspiring black kpop idols with no dancing/singing ability I been around who have absolutely no respect for anyone asian.

    Although one thing I do notice is that whenever I date asian women, Blerds will esteem that. When i previously had white nerdy friends, them “very good” Would blatantly hit on my girlfriend before me even when she actively dodges their Where My Hug antics. Never had this problem with blerds, Even all those people frequented the same hangout spots but weren friends.
