Byron York: Sen. Graham Is Essentially Giving Trump a ‘Green Light’ to Fire Sessions

‘You have to remember that other than the Russia matter, Jeff Sessions has made a lot of Republicans really happy pursuing a Trump agenda at the Justice Department’

EXCERPT:

YORK: "There has been a change in the attitude of some Republicans toward President Trump firing Jeff Sessions. You have to remember that other than the Russia matter, Jeff Sessions has made a lot of Republicans really happy pursuing a Trump agenda at the Justice Department on drugs, crime, immigration, and other issues. So they are actually happy with the job he has done. But it was very important recently to hear senator Lindsey Graham, who's a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and has also become close to the president, goes and plays golf with him and has heard the president complain about Jeff Sessions. Senator Graham came out and said that this is a dysfunctional relationship between the president and the attorney general. It is time that a change was made. And this is essentially a member of the Judiciary Committee giving a green light to the president to fire the attorney general."
