Flashback: Democrats Demand Sessions' Resignation


Democrats are harshly criticizing President Donald Trump for asking Jeff Sessions to resign from his position as Attorney General, but they are forgetting that they were the ones demanding Sessions’ resignation to begin with.

Democrats fueled their Russian conspiracy theory and asked for Sessions’ resignation after it was revealed in March 2017 that Sessions attended a conference in 2016 set up by the Obama administration that Russian ambassadors also attended.

In March 2017, NBC News ran an article with the headline: “Democrats Demand Attorney General Jeff Sessions Resign Over Russian Meetings.”

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi were among the most vocal democrats calling for Sessions’ resignation.

“Sessions is not fit to serve as the top law enforcement officer of our country and must resign,” Pelosi said in a statement. “There must be an independent, bipartisan, outside commission to investigate the Trump political, personal and financial connections to the Russians.”

She also ranted about Sessions on Twitter.

“Anything less than resignation or removal from office is unacceptable,” she wrote.

Should Democrats be held accountable for what they wanted one year ago?

Pelosi now seems like Sessions’ biggest fan.

On Wednesday, Pelosi complained on Twitter about his resignation.

“It is impossible to read Attorney General Sessions’ firing as anything other than another blatant attempt by (President Donald Trump) to undermine & end Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation,” she wrote.

Warren also had strong words for Sessions in 2017.

“And we need Attorney General Jeff Sessions – who should have never been confirmed in the first place – to resign. We need it now,” she wrote.

Well, it looks like she eventually got what she wanted. Sessions resigned yesterday.

However, Warren is now claiming that Sessions’s resignation will lead to a “constitutional crisis.”

“(President Donald Trump’s) firing of Jeff Sessions brings us one step closer to a constitutional crisis. Congress must act to ensure that Special Counsel Mueller can do his job without interference,” she wrote Wednesday.

It almost seems like Democrats are political opportunists.
