CNN’s Acosta: ‘The President Has for a Long Time Wanted To Unload Jeff Sessions’

‘We heard how he wanted to fire Jeff Sessions’

RUSH EXCERPT:

ACOSTA: “The President has for a long time wanted to unload Jeff Sessions. We heard how he wanted to fire Jeff Sessions. This is not coming as a huge shock to people in Washington. I talked to a source familiar with what had happened to Jeff Sessions, who said before the midterm elections there were discussions inside the Senate GOP caucus about whether or not the President would try to do this somehow before the midterms and the message was being sent from the White House that the President would, in fact, wait until after the midterms.”
