Feinstein: If Trump Removes Sessions to Stop Mueller Investigation, It Could ‘Be the Beginning of the End’ of Trump Presidency

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, stated that if Attorney General Jeff Sessions is removed from his position, “many of us” would believe the purpose of the move would be to stop Bob Mueller’s investigation, and it could be the beginning of the end of Trump’s presidency.

Feinstein said, “Well, Jeff Sessions has done nothing to deserve termination, and I don’t always agree with him, that’s true, but I really disagree [with] using him as a political pawn. The president can transfer him to Homeland Security. But if the purpose is what many of us think it is, and that’s to stop the investigation of Bob Mueller and his team, that will not work. Because I believe that will be something that none of us can condone, and it could well be the beginning of the end of this short presidency. I don’t want that to be the case, but this is the red zone, and no president should enter it without knowing fully what the repercussions are.”
