Sessions to be replaced by a Fox News commentator who once described in detail how he would kill the Mueller investigation… I think this probably qualifies as a constitutional crisis, right?

[above: A shot from outside the White House tonight by CNN’s Jim Acosta, who had his press credentials stripped this afternoon after standing up to Donald Trump.] Back in July of 2017, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said there’d be “holy hell to pay” if Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
