“Jeff Sessions, secret liberal” really manages to plumb a whole new depth of implausibility.

And yet first-term Rep and aspiring Trump ballwasher Matt Gaetz was on Fox today, agreeing with “Judge Jeanine” that beta cuck Sessions should either appoint a more Repub-friendly special counsel or GTFO:
Rep. Matt Gaetz and a dozen other House Republicans are calling for the Justice Department to appoint a second special counsel to investigate surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign…
"My fear is that if we don't have a second special counsel this will turn out a lot like the Benghazi investigation where we learn a lot about facts but no one is held accountable" pic.twitter.com/dVS0RTT7io

Gaetz said on “Outnumbered Overtime” that a second probe would provide “real accountability for these crimes that were committed against President Trump and his team.”
He said Republicans called for a second special counsel seven months ago, but Sessions took no action.
“If Jeff Sessions doesn’t want to do the job of attorney general, he should step aside and we should get somebody who wants to do that job.”…
This came after Chris Christie’s Sunday performance, saying that if the president really wants an Attorney General he can trust, maybe he should just man up and do something…
Chris Christie on ABC: "If the president has absolutely no confidence in the attorney general, then the president has to act. Not just criticize, but act."

I’m just saying. Friend to friend. And look, do I have any suggestions for a replacement? No. But it should be someone who maybeeee used to be a U.S attorney but not so recently that he’s a deep stater. And maybe someone who has executive experience. Just saying. https://t.co/Q2k2bCpJdQ

(Yeah, I don’t think even Donny Dollhands is dumb enough to fall for Christie’s bluff, but ya can’t fault the man for trying.)
Remember last week, per the Washington Post?
Perhaps Attorney General Jeff Sessions was desensitized by President Trump’s “DISGRACEFUL” tweet on Wednesday, but if he has any feelings left to hurt, then the former senator from Alabama might have been further wounded by Thursday’s daily news briefing.
Asked if Trump plans to fire Sessions, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders replied, “Not that I know of.”…
