United States Senator, Lindsey Graham, (R-SC), walked up to the plate pitching the proverbial ball right over home plate.

The South Carolina Senator, is all about “a new face and a fresh voice,” directing the DOJ.
In a stunning interview, as he casually walked the hallowed halls of D.C., the Senator said, “The President is entitled to an Attorney General he has faith in.”
“Somebody that’s qualified for the job. And I think there will come a time. Sooner rather than later, where it will be time to have a new face and a fresh voice at the Department of Justice,” Graham told the reporter.
It’s all about the timing.
“Replacing him before the election, to me, would be a non-starter,” Senator Graham said. In other words, he believes it would not be a good idea to replace Sessions prior to the midterms. But, perhaps, after the midterms would be better timing. (Video Below)
Senator Graham continued, “The idea of having a new Attorney General in the first term of President Trump’s administration, I think is very likely.”

Additionally, Jeff Sessions woke from his nap and responded in a written statement.
“I took control of the Department of Justice the day I was sworn in, which is why we have had unprecedented success at effectuating the president’s agenda – one that protects the safety and security and rights of the American people, reduces violent crime, enforces our immigration laws, promotes economic growth, and advances religious liberty.”
During the interview, President Trump says of the current AG, “It’s a very very sad day. Jeff Sessions recused himself, which he shouldn’t have done, or he should have told me. Even my enemies say that Jeff Sessions should have told you that he was going to recuse himself, and then you wouldn’t have put him in.”
In ending, should Jeff Sessions be replaced as Attorney General? And if yes, who would you like to see take on the role of Attorney General of the United States of America?
