Advancing Trump's Agenda'

On Thursday, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he would run to retake his U.S. Senate seat next year. If he wins the Republican primary, he will face Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.), who defeated a scandal-plagued Roy Moore in the 2017 special election to fill the seat after Sessions joined the Trump administration. Fox News host Tucker Carlson began his show by asking Sessions point-blank: "Are you running for Senate?" "Yes, we'll file our papers tomorrow," Sessions replied. Sessions resigned his Senate seat and was confirmed as Attorney General in February 2017.

Go away Jeff. You single handedly almost destroyed the Trump presidency. We don't need fake Republicans like you in the Senate.

Sessions was a much better Senator than he was an AG. I hope he wins.

So, Jeffy; As a mere one of a hundred FratBoys in the Senate and a mere one of 535 in the entire Congress you'll be more effective in advancing Trumps Agenda, than anyone else..... And yet, when you were the Attorney General, the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the USA, the head of the entire Department of Justice, you didn't do a darn thing to advance the Trump Agenda, or even much to protect the USA from criminals, traitors and seditionists, foreign and domestic. Yeah, right. You'll do it this time around, Sure. You were pretty much my favorite Senator in 2015 & 2016.... No More. Time to retire and enjoy your grandchildren ..... Or something.

I don't understand why a person of this age feels the need to run for Senator. That being said he would do as good a job as any of the other Republican candidates but I still don't understand all of his actions or non actions as Attorney General.

If you listen to what Jeff Sessions said about him being more effective than anyone else in advancing President Trump’s agenda you are hearing a duplicitous DC UniParty politician who showed by his moronic actions that he would be useless to Trump and a snake in the grass. Who could blame Trump from ignoring Sessions from now on. Chances are he won’t make it through the Alabama Republican Primary if he actually does decide to throw his hat in the ring.

Percentage of his votes Senator Sessions cast in line with Trump positions in the 115th Congress: 100% Percentage of his votes Democrat Senator Jones cast in line with Trump positions in the subsequent 116th Congress : 18.5% That's really all I need to know. Who cares that he sucked as an AG? He was bred for the genteel country club atmosphere of the Senate where, apparently, his constituents of Alabama love him.

OK, he sucked as Attorney General and to this day probably doesn't even realize it. But he was a reliable conservative vote while in the senate and there is no reason to think he would not resume that role if he gets elected. And who other than Moore is interested in running in the GOP primary? Like most I would like to see a fresh young conservative face, but if Sessions can beat Jones then that is the bottom line.

So, yes, he blind sided Trump on the recusal, but guess what happened afterwards, with the Democrats leading that investigation and subsequent Mueller report? NOTHING, but expose the Democrats for what they were doing. Instead of a partisan accusation, the Democrats weren't able to find any credence to their Russian collusion accusation. Believe he was also working on other issues without much scrutiny. I believe Sessions will win in Alabama, and Tubberville can work on some other elected office, if he's truly inclined to be in public office.

He wasn't "effective" at his job at AG, why would I trust him a second time? Either an incompetent fool or a Deep State antiTrumper, I can't tell from here. Either way, if I was a voter in his state, not likely if I had any other even moderately viable option. But, I am not in his state. We will see what his voters think.

He might be as bad as some here believe. However, even then, would he not be a better senator than Jones? I believe he could beat Jones. Is there another Republican that could beat Jones? I am waiting on Horowitz, Huber and Durham. In World War II the allies had the Nazis watching Patton while the real invasion force prepared. Was Sessions the stalking horse and thought to be safe to ignore while the real hunters prepared to bag their limit? Beating the Clinton's, Obama's and US intelligence and counter-intelligence brass at their own game would be a stellar accomplishment. Could it be what drew Barr out of retirement? Could you see Trump and Sessions hiding out at one of Trump's palaces planning a little rope-a-dope for the plotters? Session seemed to be a different guy when he appeared on Carlson last night. If this was the ploy and they actually get the deep state plotters, I might die laughing.

Sessions will vote to convict Trump if there is an impeachment trail. I would vote Democrat to keep that snake out of the Senate. He was Brennan's CIA plant when he was AG.
