Darnit, where did the Trump White House get the idea of moving Attorney General Jeff Sessions over to the Department of Homeland Security and replacing him at the Department of Justice with someone even more (somehow) willing to let Trump get away with murdering Rod Rosenstein and Bob Mueller? They got it from somewhere, because here’s ABC News reporting that “Trump aides” are pushing for it, which means everyone was yelling at each other and that got yelled about some.

They denied it’s going to happen yesterday, so look for Sessions to be appointed to DHS Friday evening and new AG David Duke recess-appointed retroactive to 2012.

Or, apparently, they could make… Rick Perry the Attorney General somehow? Philip Bump, correspondent of the Washington Post, are YOU the one who gave Trump’s people this idea? You came out with your worryingly correct-sounding explanation of how Rick Perry could become AG the day before Reince got pushed out and Kelly’s spot at DHS opened up. Bump talked to Paul Butler, an expert in this sort of shit, who told him:

“‘The Vacancies Act says that — notwithstanding any kind of other rule, like the regular DOJ succession statute — that the president, and only the president, can appoint an acting head of the Department of Justice to that position as long as that person has been confirmed by the Senate,” Butler explained. “So if there’s another person who works in the federal government whose job requires presidential appointment and then confirmation by the Senate, then that person is entitled to be put in, in this case, as the acting attorney general.'”

In other words, Trump could (maybe) make Ben Carson the Attorney General. The person being replaced needs to die, resign or be “otherwise unable to perform the functions and duties of the office” which might get in the way, but if you desperately shuffle your AG somewhere else because you’re a flailing, petty crook with an ego problem and incredible luck who’s in way over his head, that technically means they are “otherwise unable to perform the functions and duties of the office” so, fine.

But there is no way anybody in the White House knew you could just swap one of these Cabinet guys for another! That’s complicated stuff! Maybe Reince knew it. Or maybe they really do get these ideas from just, like, stuff you can google.

So Washington Post friends, please be careful about what you explain Trump can do. Like, don’t find some political science Jedi who knows about an incorrectly placed semicolon that gives the President the power to nationalize the press forever.

Incidentally, the first place on the internet to alight upon the idea of moving Sessions to DHS appears to have been a blog called American Lookout, which has writers who’ve published on Breitbart, Gateway Pundit, and one that’s new to me called Three Percenter Nation, which refers (supposedly) to the percentage of colonists who actually fought against the British, and now denotes an association of people who fantasize about insurrection with varying degrees of wanting to actually do it.

So, it’s fairly clear that Bannon got the idea here, and/or maybe it was Jared who read about the Cabinet switcheroo in the Post and told Dana Perino who told Donald Trump through the tv.

Or maybe they did come up with it themselves, who the hell knows. It won’t be Giuliani for DHS though, he was a prosecutor, he knows a lot of these guys are fucked.

          Opioids are really good cough suppressants. It’s why they were in all those pre-Harrison act medications (5 grains is about 0.3g, taken orally it’s not that bioavailable, so you’d have to drink the whole bottle to get buzzed let alone cause respiratory depression.
          The alcohol would have way more effect).

    Are they aware of the similarities between that name and the Five Percenter Nation, a kind of black nationalist movement (with whom the Wu Tang Clan are somewhat associated), that believes in an elaborate mythological backstory which establishes black people as the superior humans and white people as an inferior subspecies whose downfall is inevitable?

    I really hope they get a bunch of confused commenters on their blogs. I mean, I’m white, so I can’t really get behind the Five Percenters and they wouldn’t have me anyway (and I think they’re nuts), but I like them better than these three percenter people. In fact, these three percenter people make me kind of see the plausibility behind the Fiver Percenter mythology.

      I saw that Mo guy who is a GOP rep there in Alabama but running for the senate, on TV saying if Sessions gets kicked out of the AG job he would pull out of the race and would to try to talk everyone else into doing it, too, so Sessions could get his old seat back. Who knows if he’d keep his word, though. Probably depends on his poll #’s.

  • Relativicus

    Would Sessions need to agree to the move, or does Trump say “Take it, or leave it”? DHS keeps Sessions in enforcement, but differently. And he reallyreallyreallyreallyreally likes what he’s able to do at the DOJ. Maybe he’ll say “Thanks, but no thanks, and I’m staying right here until you fire me”? It would be a good way for him to give back at Trump for Trump’s Sessions-related tantrums.

    • Alex Ruthrauff

      I think he would only have to agree with it in the sense that he doesn’t resign instead.

      • Relativicus

        But if Sessions refuses to resign?

        Even being ordered to resign is nothing more than a request. Of course, the offer or order to resign usually comes, implicitly or explicitly, with an “or you’re fired.” And usually, a person given that choice resigns for career and/or severance reasons. But Sessions loves this gig, has no other career or money worries, and Trump is said to be reluctant to fire people (plus, he would pay a high political cost, of which he may or may not have any appreciation). He may be able to stay put until Trump acts.

        Another scenario has Sessions refusing DHS, and refusing to resign, and Trump fires Sessions for insubordination. And right wing media will jump to defend the firing as having nothing to do with Mueller and the rest. That Trump had been doing everything short of actually firing Sessions for weeks won’t matter much. It was insubordination! Case closed.

    FaceSpacester Post from Robert Reich who I tend to take seriously.

    Robert Reich

    21 hrs ·

    This morning I phoned my friend, a former Republican member of Congress.

    Me: What’s going on? Seems like the White House is imploding, and Republicans are going down with the ship.

    Him (chuckling): We’re officially a banana republic.

    Me: Seriously, what are you hearing from your former colleagues on the Hill?

    Him: They’re convinced Trump is out of his gourd.

    Me: So what are they going to do about it?

    Him: Remember what I told you at the start of this circus? They planned
    to use Trump’s antics for cover, to get done what they most wanted –
    big tax cuts, rollbacks of regulations, especially financial. They’d
    work with Pence behind the scenes and forget the crazy uncle in the
    attic.

    Me: Yeah.

    Him: Well, I’m hearing a different story
    now. Stuff with Sessions is pissing them off. And now Trump’s hired
    that horse’s ass Scaramucci — a communications director who talks dirty
    on CNN! Plus Trump’s numbers are in freefall. They think he’s gonna
    hurt them in ’18 and ’20.

    Me: So what’s the plan?

    Him: They want him outa there.

    Me: Really? Impeachment?

    Him: Doubt it, unless Mueller comes up with a smoking gun.

    Me: Or if he fires Mueller.

    Him: Not gonna happen.

    Me: So how do they get him out?

    Him: Put someone else up in ’20. Lots of maneuvering already. Pence, obviously. Cruz thinks he has a shot.

    Me: But that won’t help them in the midterms. What’s the plan before then?

    Him: Lots think he’s fritzing out.

    Me: Fritzing out?

    Him: Going totally bananas. Paranoia. You want to know why he fired
    Priebus, wants Sessions out, and is now gunning for Tillerson?

    Me: He wants to shake things up?

    Him (chuckling): No. The way I hear it, he thinks they’ve been plotting against him.

    Me: What do you mean?

    Him: Twenty-fifth amendment! Read it! A Cabinet can get rid of a
    president who’s nuts. Trump thinks they’ve been preparing a palace coup.
    So one by one, he’s firing them.

    Me: I find it hard to believe they’re plotting against him.

    Him: Of course not! It’s ludicrous. Sessions is a loyal lapdog.
    Tillerson doesn’t know where the bathroom is. That’s my point. Trump is
    fritzing out. Having manic delusions. He’s actually going nuts.

    Me: And?

    Him: Well, it’s downright dangerous.

    Me: Yeah, but that still doesn’t tell me what Republicans are planning to do about it.

    Him: Look. How long do you think it will be before everyone in
    Washington knows he’s flipping out? I don’t mean just weird. I mean
    really off his rocker.

    Me: I don’t know.

    Him: No all that long.

    Me: So what are you telling me?

    Him: They don’t have to plot against him. It will be obvious to
    everyone that he’s got to go. That’s where the twenty-fifth amendment
    really does comes in.

    Me: So you think…

    Him: Who knows? But he’s losing it fast. My betting is he’s out of office before the midterms. And Pence is president.

    • roberteye

      It’s great stuff but I find the “Pence is president” a decidedly unhappy ending.

          I didn’t say he was making it up. I meant to say he’s part of the reason we have this ghastly President, so his complaints ring hollow to me. And honestly, I think I’d have to say that hating Hillary, which means someone’s bought the vile GOP endless lies and smears hook line and sinker, against all evidence, and has been unable to discern between a slightly flawed but phenomenal candidate, and a pile of toxic shit, does make one un-serious.

        Yeah. Reich carries a lot of weight with the meth addicted clodhoppers.

    What do you mean nobody told 45 that all POTUS can fly if they jump off anything taller than a 5 story building? No one explained to him that he can do that? Unbelievable!

      Gravity is a liberal lie concocted by the Chinese.

    Oh please, make Carson AG. They took the Mooch away from us and Carson would be comedy GOLD.

    • SprinklemagicResistancebuns

      He and Rexxon can take naps together.

  • Canis Greyhame

    They need to find someone dumb enough to think he can get away with borking the investigation as acting AG without putting his own dumb ass into legal jeopardy.

    Yeah, Rick Perry fits the bill.

  • ken_kukec

    Not Rick Perry — he’d forget the name of the special counsel’s office he was ‘sposed to eliminate. Oops.

    It’s always the family that’s pushing Trump to obstruct. What d’you suppose they know that the others don’t?

      All of it, Katy.

      • lurch394

        Minor quibble: “Katy” is Tur. “Katie” is Couric. Otherwise spot on.

          Hah- I’m used to spelling it “K ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • Bozilingus

    They should move all of the Cabinet around every few months. Sort of like Musical Chairs, with the loser becoming the new Chief of Staff.

    • Ducksworthy

      I like it although I was hoping for something involving a guillotine.

  • BMW

    Except for the inescapable idea that maybe everyone agrees the head of DOJ needs to be a lawyer, this sounds exactly like the kind of dumb shit they would do. It also sounds like one of those dumb schemes the press floats every few years (like making Bob Dole Speaker of the House in the late 90s after he left Congress, or Biden and Hillary Clinton swapping jobs in 2012, or the Electoral College voting for Mitt Romney or John Kasich in 2016 instead of Trump) that is newsworthy only for its insanity.

    • Cornelius Fussbudget

      You forgot: Biden convening the Senate on January 3rd, 2017 and confirming Merrick Garland.

        I actually thought about that one too, but decided not to mention it because I didn’t want to get into an argument with anybody about how ridiculous it was, since there were people on here advocating for it at the time.

        • Cornelius Fussbudget

          Hey, I got my hopes up too, that’s why I remembered it! But, yeah it was pretty ridiculous. Of course, if you said a couple of years ago that McConnell would hold up Garland’s nomination for 310 days, I would have also put that into the “dumb scheme” category, so I figured, two dumbs make a smart.

          I have this dumb idea myself*, that after the Democrats are back in charge after the midterms, they’ll expand the supreme court to 11 justices. You know, in between impeaching Trump and passing single payer.

          * At least, I haven’t noticed anyone else suggesting it yet

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    So would this get around the recess appointments rules? (i.e. the Dems not letting the Senate go into recess so he can’t recess appoint anyone). And wouldn’t they STILL need Senate confirmation for the new job? I start to see why people like Leon Panetta just move from agency to agency.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Why don’t they hold a national sweepstakes? The first prize would be a year in Trump’s Cabinet. The second prize, two years.

            So, I’m in, yeah? Please?

            I’m not Caunckistani, but sure, why not?

      Don’t be silly! First prize is one month. Second prize is one week….

    Sessions’ is in Atlanta today, speaking to the Association of Black Police Executives or som such, basically to Black chief of polices. Aside, gosh is he ever a bad, awful, very bad public speaker.
    Any hoo, his public speech was Trump supports you, blah, blah, blah while in a closed session, the chiefs unloaded about their concern about Trump’s “joke” about police brutality. So good times.

  • Zyxomma

    N-o-o-o !!!

  • BillEGoatSmirk

    I wonder if it might actually be better to have Sessions at DHS. He’s cranking up the damage at DOJ to 11 already. Today’s newest missive is starting a working group to start harassing colleges that use any type of affirmative action that may “hurt” white applicants….and maybe if Trump pulls this stunt and puts Perry at DOJ to fire Mueller, the constitutional shit will actually hit the fan?…also, Donnie has been fucking around with the line of succession at DOJ by Executive Order. Twice since January. Not sure how that might come into play.
