i don't disagree that jeff sessions is bad news, but perhaps i'm just getting different information

In my experience you really just don't seem to process information the same as everyone else.  I'm sure you're okay with that, the same as we're okay with disagreeing with you most of the time.

It sounds like that is definitely at odds with Sessions stated goal of increasing penalties on drug offenders.

I guess that's not really a surprise, but it is really stupid.

The way I see this move is to defund the Drug Czar to get him out of the way. They already have minimum sentencing laws on the books and Sessions is going to use them. He doesn't need some Drug Czar telling him those laws don't work.

A couple of tidbits that might be connected.

Kelly Ann Conway abruptly cancelled an appearance on the Tucker Carlson show (FOX).

WP now reporting that a close aid to Trump is under investigation for helping coordinate stolen email leaks.

Just saying ......

The Trump administration is a circus, the which we have never seen before.

I honestly don't see how Trump will survive his full 4 year term.

Doubtful, Conway is nothing more than a mouthpiece.

Repeating what John Oliver said on Sunday night - Trump's strongest quality is surviving. There are dozens of events that have happened over the last year where everyone said, "this has to be the end for him." And yet he continues. And will continue.

Maybe. Maybe not. Being POTUS isn't the same as being a self-employed real estate shark/speculator.  You can't just not study up on anything, demand everything be your way and not run afoul of laws.  Yes, his party's majorities in both houses of Congress may protect him indefinitely.  I'm hoping they don't.
