Jeff Sessions tries to get his conservative cred back

Jeff Sessions, trying to get back on the MAGA movement’s good side after his public tussles with President Trump, went after district court judges who are threatening the president’s cabinet members with investigations.

Speaking to the Heritage Foundation in Washington DC, Sessions addressed a ruling by New York district court judge Jesse M. Furman that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross can be questioned in a lawsuit about why the Trump administration added a question about citizenship to the 2020 Census.

The court wants “to hold a trial over the inner workings of a Cabinet secretary’s mind,” Sessions said. “We intend to fight this, and we intend to win.”

Sessions appears to fear that courts will get a precedent to investigate the president’s taxes, his payoffs to women for their silence, his associations with Saudis, and his continued involvement in his businesses.

Sessions may want to buddy up to the president through his Cabinet now, but he’s shown who he really is: A MAGA enemy. Save it, Jeff.
