John Dean on Sessions: This Appears To Be a Slow Moving Saturday Night Massacre

‘Slow moving Saturday night massacre’


DEAN: “You know, there are a number of members of the Senate on the Republican side who have said that’s a step too far. Mitt Romney, who is now in the Senate, said it during the campaign. Lamar Alexander has said it. Not just those who are on their way out the door have said it. So it’s very possible that trump knows he’s playing high risk if he ever were to go that far. I think what the plan may be, as was said by Matt Whitaker, that you can do a slow death by cutting off his funding.”
