Democrats Slam Trump For Forcing Sessions Resignation. They’ve Forgotten What They Said In 2017.

(TeaParty.org) – In an epic display of the Democrats’ incredible ability to criticize President Trump for literally anything he ever does, top leaders of the party are chiding POTUS for forcing Jeff Sessions to resign his post as Attorney General.

You guessed it–these are the very same people who were calling for his resignation just last year.

In March of 2017, when it was revealed that Sessions had attended a conference in 2016 that also happened to be attended by Russian diplomats, the Democrats fully ignored the fact that this was a perfectly normal thing to expect of the then-Senator and called for him to resign.

That same month, NBC ran the headline “Democrats Demand Attorney General Jeff Sessions Resign Over Russian Meetings.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi led the charge against Sessions.

“Sessions is not fit to serve as the top law enforcement officer of our country and must resign,” Pelosi said at the time. “There must be an independent, bipartisan, outside commission to investigate the Trump political, personal and financial connections to the Russians.”

“Anything less than resignation or removal from office is unacceptable,” she wrote in a series of tweets.

She sure has changed her tune since.

“It is impossible to read Attorney General Sessions’ firing as anything other than another blatant attempt by (President Donald Trump) to undermine & end Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation,” she wrote on Wednesday.

Warren is also hitting a very different pitch from 2017, when she had shared Pelosi’s sentiment.

“And we need Attorney General Jeff Sessions – who should have never been confirmed in the first place – to resign. We need it now,” she wrote.

Now, the very resignation she called for in 2017 will apparently lead to a “constitutional crisis” from her perspective:

“(President Donald Trump’s) firing of Jeff Sessions brings us one step closer to a constitutional crisis. Congress must act to ensure that Special Counsel Mueller can do his job without interference,” she wrote Wednesday.

Give. Me. A. Break.
