Attorney General Jeff Sessions received a lot of flack when he called for all 46 remaining Obama-era U.S. attorneys to resign.
The left lost their minds, called it an attack on democracy, and hammered Sessions and the Trump administration for being fascist.
“At a time when Attorney General Sessions has recused himself from major investigations into the Trump campaign, the independence of federal prosecutors could not be more important,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein said, according to Newsmax. “I’m very concerned about the effect of this sudden and unexpected decision on federal law enforcement.”
Beyond the fact that the left probably doesn’t even know what fascist means, Newt Gingrich further exposed the hypocritical left by pointing out that former President Bill Clinton did the same thing.
“President Trump is doing what presidents do,” Gingrich said. “He is replacing the other team who opposed him with people who are on his side.”
“This goes all the way back to Lincoln, to Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson. The American people elect the president; they get to have the people they want in politically appointed offices.”
“Abraham Lincoln fired 70 percent of the senior bureaucrats in the federal government,” Gingrich added. “He had to get rid of Southern sympathizers and people in place willing to fight a civil war.”
Gingrich is right. In 1993, Clinton had Janet Reno fire 93 of the 94 U.S. attorneys, one of which was Sessions himself.
