DOJ Coup talk from Trump's favorite media peeps

    Maybe use this thread to keep track of stuff like this, which I saw only because it was retweeted by Media Matters:


    Meanwhile, more from the "The Resistance", former White House staff piping up about the bullying of Sessions:

    OMG, Judge Jean is right...!!!!! Liberals are attacking the White House as we speak, turn on Fox News..!!!!!!! Libs are driving tanks across the East lawn..!!!!!

    holy moly, probably secret meeting with Obama:

    BREAKING: Attorney General Jeff Sessions makes a surprise visit to Chicago. Details in a live report on @abc7chicago at 11.

    Ted Lieu is in on it:

    If @realDonaldTrump fires AG Jeff Sessions because he won't interfere in the Russia investigation, that would be another act of Obstruction of Justice by the President of the United States.

    Also, Sessions took an oath to the US Constitution, not to @POTUS. #WednesdayWisdom

    Further proof, liberal plot:

    And we don’t have a president so what’s your point?

    oooh, Sessions pushback, real gutsy for him:

    Here's a short break for members still in the reality-based world:

    Former Mueller deputy explains how Trump’s attacks on Jeff Sessions help prosecutors prove obstruction of justice

    By Bob Bringham @, Sept. 19

    MSNBC legal analyst and former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner laid out how President Donald Trump’s public attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions are helping the special counsel investigation into obstruction of justice.

    Kirschner worked with special counsel Robert Mueller in the District of Columbia United States Attorney’s office and joined MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell and former DOJ official Chuck Rosenberg on Wednesday to discuss the president’s latest attacks on his Attorney General.

    “It is somewhat ironic, Andrea, because the one person who has the authority to remove Jeff Sessions from the job is the guy who is continually complaining about the job that he is doing,” Rosenberg noted. “If the president is that upset and that concerned, there is a solution.”

    “I agree with Chuck that it is silly that a person who can fire Jeff Sessions does nothing but incessantly complain about Jeff Sessions,” Kirschner added. “But there’s another downside for the president and that is everything that he says about Jeff Sessions not being my attorney general, not protecting me, and not shutting down the investigation is of keen interest to the Mueller investigation.”

    Kirschner noted Trump, “is informing the investigation about the president’s motive and intent with every act he takes and every statement he makes and every tweet that he issues." [.....]

    getting Trumpist emails that suggest they think they've finally (again) found the big conspiracy that will finally unmask the Deep State Coup and make the Mueller probe implode spectacularly
