Senate Republicans warn Trump: We won’t confirm another AG this year if Sessions is fired

It’s ironic that Trump, so famous for preaching loyalty and surrounding himself with family, didn’t see the political peril in making a public spectacle of a member of the Senate GOP’s “family.”
Begun, the backlash has.
Grassley’s the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. If he says they won’t hold hearings on permanent replacements for Sessions this year, then that’s that. Trump has options short of confirmation, as Ed noted earlier, but no good ones. It looks like the Senate won’t formally adjourn next month, which would bar a recess appointment; failing that, he’d be stuck with Rod Rosenstein or forced to elevate one of the thousands of DOJ employees who currently qualify for the GS-15 federal pay scale, which would be bizarre. He’s boxed himself in. He played a game of one-dimensional chess, and lost.

It seems Trump is not able to transfer his manhood to many weak Republicans. I'm ready to see them ousted.
