Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) pointed out on Thursday that the Attorney General Jeff Sessions isn’t in his post so he can do President Trump‘s evil bidding and that he should stay in his job if justice is still being properly carried out.
“I think that the attorney general is not there to do the bidding of the president in any private way. He’s not there to protect the president. He is there to assure that justice is done, and as long as he’s doing that, I think he merits staying in office,” Al Green said on Hill.TV’s show “Rising.”
“I’ll leave it to the president as to whether he wants to be so bold as to fire an attorney general after having fired Mr. Comey for Mr. Comey’s investigating his campaign’s involvement with Russians and the election,” Green continued, referring to ex-FBI director James Comey.
Green’s comments come after Donald Trump blasted Sessions during an interview with Hill.TV earlier this week, immaturely whining that he did not even have an attorney general, just because Jeff Sessions doesn’t obstruct justice for him.
“I don’t have an attorney general. It’s very sad,” Donald Trump whined. “I’m not happy at the border, I’m not happy with numerous things, not just this.”
Al Green responded to President Trump’s comments with a tweet, explaining that Sessions “works for the people, not for you.”
Mr. President, you are imminently correct. YOU don’t have an Attorney General. The United States of America has an Attorney General, & when YOU have an Attorney General, the country loses. AG Jeff Sessions is not your private lawyer. He works for the people, NOT for you.

Donald Trump began to frequently and aggressively attack Sessions one the attorney general appropriately recused himself from the probe into Russian election interference. The traitorous cheating lying president has blamed that choice for the appointment of the special counsel Robert Mueller.
Trump’s attacks on Jeff Sessions have fueled strong speculation that Donald Trump will try to fire him and replace him with an obedient lackey who will help him get away with his many felonies.
Green, who has admirably introduced articles of impeachment against Donald Trump, said any move from President Trump to fire AG Sessions will be duly considered when the impeachment movement gains momentum.
