Nice piece by columnist Jim Antle describing why President Trump needs Sessions and will not let him go.
From the article:
Sessions is a much more important figure in Trumpworld than ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn ever was. The administration is layered with his associates. Deputy White House chief of staff Rick Dearborn and senior adviser Stephen Miller were top Sessions staffers.
Trump’s immigration policy, a critical part of his appeal during the primaries and the general election campaign, was shaped substantially by Sessions. Sessions arguably played as big a role in guiding Trump toward nationalism and populism as chief strategist Stephen Bannon.
Trump has stayed loyal to embattled underlings in the past. He stuck by campaign manager Corey Lewandowski amidst simple battery charges. Flynn misled Vice President Pence, but in this situation there is no divided loyalty.
