Jeff Sessions is plotting a comeback that may give Trump one big headache

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is plotting a comeback.

There is one job he has his eyes on.

And it could create one big headache for Donald Trump.

Rumors are swirling around Alabama that Sessions could run for his old Senate seat against Democrat Doug Jones in 2020.

Top Republicans in the state believe Sessions would enter the race the frontrunner.

However, his tensions with Donald Trump could prove to be a hurdle.

Politico reports:

Sessions’ name surfaced as a potential candidate immediately after he was dumped as attorney general this month. But he could be dogged by his strained relationship with President Donald Trump, who remains wildly popular in Alabama and savaged Sessions throughout his tenure at the Justice Department.

Though Sessions would be the clear front-runner if he runs, his frayed ties with Trump could create an opening for other Republicans to make a play for the seat — and cause a messy primary similar to the one that cost the party the seat last year, several Alabama Republicans tracking the situation said.

POLITICO interviewed more than a dozen GOP operatives and potential candidates in the state about the prospect of a Sessions comeback bid and the forecast for the Senate race against Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.). They agreed that Sessions remains overwhelmingly popular in his home state after representing it for nearly two decades in the Senate.

Sessions resigned after Trump lost faith in him after he caved to fake news media pressure to recuse himself from the Russia investigation.

Some Trump supporters never forgave him for that mistake.

But no one questioned Sessions commitment to Trump’s agenda – particularly on immigration and trade.

If Sessions were to win, he would likely be a loyal Trump vote in the Senate.

    He definitely should stay retired since he did nothing while in office he might as well run as Independant or Democrat cause he is not a Republican.

    I believe Session’s recusal was an intentional move that allowed him to work behind the scene. Think what he got accomplished by working to appoint Huber to work with Horowitz to investigate deep state. Think what he accomplished with boarder patrol and sanctuary city issues. Now, Whitaker as acting AG can work unimpeded to implement the finding of the Huber, Horowitz investigations. Sessions will return to the senate, where his most effective. Brilliant Move.

    Damn right

  4. Don says:

    He was useless when in Congress and even more useless as AG having done little or nothing for the state or country. Alabamans had better wake up or they’ll be sleeping under the NWO drivel of which he’s a part.

  5. Dora says:

    He is weakly person like a snowflake. he melts when the sun come up.

  6. Dora says:

    There is no deep state. That is the imagined subject of people like Limbaugh and Jones. Just something to scare people. Likely came straight from Russia. Fear is how Trump keeps people like you worried while he does what he can to destroy our government. Nothing is above Trump, when he understands the results or when he does not…..Mr Evil is his title.

    Sarah Penny, You are one sick Henny Penny, brainwashed little twirp of a liberal. You are totally off the rails and out of touch with reality. Poor baby, take two aspirin and call a shrink in the morning.

    Sessions followed the law. Pure and simple. Trying to explain to Trump that certain laws apply to certain procedures is like trying to explain to Trumpsters that just because one has authority does not give him the right to not abide by the law. ignorance is so bountiful in the US. Seems to attach on to Trump and all those who praise him for his deeds and deceptions. Sessions may not try to get revenge against Trump. He seems to follow the teachings of the Holy Scripture. If he does, he will just let God do it. Trump has so much coming to him that it will be shocking to sit and watch. The question is, will he get it now or will he get it in the here after.

    I go along with you, I’ve voted for him every time in the past, but not now.

  12. Billie Sheffield says:

    I agree! Sessions is good for nothing! Maybe he will die before the next election!

  13. Gerry says:

    Zee — I think they spell that — COWARD !!!!! I hate that word but it fits him.

  14. Gerry says:

    What’s he going to do in the Senate — recuse himself every time an important issue comes up. I thought for sure this article was going to say he joined the dirtbag mueller sh**bird team.

  15. zee says:

    I honestly ‘perceive’ That IF Sessions Returns to his Senate Seat –
    He Will Do Good. I ‘perceive’ Sessions Is Totally ‘Relieved’/& Glad
    from ‘Pressure/Threats etc from AG ‘Duty’. It Was Just tooo much for him.

    Will not get my vote. If he’s on the ticket will be the first time I do not vote straight ticket republican. I will vote individual republican then skip him.

  17. B Taylor says:

    What do you have to do to retire a RINO? Shoot them I guess, all he would do is what Romney will do . Sabotage the President and the country.

    Traitor is not spelled whimp!

  19. Wondering Woman says:

    Seem to recall that Mitch McConnell made a remark he was going to make sure only good establishment republicans won in the future and his actions against Judge Roy Moore proved his intent, by backing the democrat over Judge Roy Moore.
    He may have flipped since, but still don’t trust him to not be deep state establishment. He is a career politician of long standing and not likely he isn’t dse traitor!
