From the looks of things, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has no intentions to quit his job anytime in the near future. 

That’s the takeaway from a statement Sessions issued on Wednesday on a topic completely unrelated to the drama unfolding between him and President Trump.


Statement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Recommendations From the Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety

Attorney General Jeff Sessions today issued the following statement on the work of the Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety:


“Every American, no matter who they are or where they live, has the right to be safe in their homes and neighborhoods.

And yet, in many locations, the violent crime rate is rising, and in some of our urban areas, the increase is staggering.

Reducing this crime surge is a top priority for President Trump and the Department of Justice.


Consistent with the President’s Executive Order on a Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety, I created the Task Force in February and it has provided me with recommendations on a rolling basis.

Dedicated professionals from throughout the Department have been listening to our partners in state, local, and tribal law enforcement; identifying successful violent crime reduction strategies; and developing recommendations on actions the Department can take to help improve public safety.”

“I have been acting on the Task Force’s recommendations to set the policy of the Department. I will continue to review all of the Task Force’s recommendations, and look forward to taking additional steps towards ensuring safer communities for all Americans.”

Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller has more: 

Sessions’ job security has been the subject of intense speculation in recent days, as Trump has publicly criticized him over his decision to recuse himself in March from the ongoing Russia investigation. Trump said last week that he was “disappointed” in Sessions and would not have picked him as attorney general had he known that the former Alabama senator would recuse himself from the probe.

Sessions did so because of his position in the Trump campaign, which is being investigated for potential collusion with the Russian government.

Sessions’ recusal put Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in charge of the investigation. Trump appears ultimately upset with the decision to hire Special Counsel Robert Mueller to lead the probe. Rosenstein picked Mueller in May, soon after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

Trump’s comments have generated speculation that he plans to fire Sessions or publicly humiliate him until he resigns.

Trump’s passive-aggressive approach has angered many of his supporters, many of whom support Sessions hawkishness on immigration and crime.

Sessions’ allies have said in recent days that he is upset with Trump’s public comments but has no plans to quit his job.

God Bless.
