Back on June 7, political insider and Chairman of the Democratic Coalition Jon Cooper, tweeted, “Word among Trump staffers is that both Jeff Sessions AND Sean Spicer will resign over the coming weeks in sign of growing tensions in WH.”

Now almost 2 weeks since that tweet, it’s being reported by the mainstream media that Press Secretary Sean Spicer will be stepping down from his position within the briefing room. There has been a lot of turmoil and confusion as of late, mostly because President Trump seemingly is telling his press team one thing, and then telling the media another, on a variety of topics.

It looks like Jon Cooper’s White House source was correct in their leaking of information on Spicer. The next question of course is whether or not they will also be correct in their report that Jeff Sessions could be next. Just last night, Jon Cooper made another tweet, reporting:

“As my WH sources told me, it appears Sean Spicer is on his way out. They still think Jeff Sessions will be next!”

Back on June 6, the HuffingtonPost also reported that Jeff Sessions was considering resigning, a move that could cause even more turmoil within the White House.

During Sessions’ Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, he refused to answer a lot of questions claiming it was his duty to keep what goes on in the White House private. If for some reason Sessions resigns or is fired, would these private conversations still need to be protected? Perhaps a resignation could signal the willingness of Sessions to cooperate more in a Trump/Russia investigation, which is certainly something that wouldn’t bode well for Donald Trump or anyone else in his campaign or administration.

The other question that remains, is who would take over for Jeff Sessions as the Attorney General if he were to step down or get fired. It is doubtful that President Trump would appoint Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, given everything currently going on with the Mueller investigation.

    Farmers could grow some serious crops with the manure that is spread on this site. Spicer is leading a press briefing right now (June 20 -2PM) and Sessions isn’t going anywhere.

    I want Sessions gone as bad as the next guy, but this constant reporting of unconfirmed rumors and gossip reminds me of CNN’s disgraceful coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing: “We’ve heard a report of two other bombs!” “A Saudi national has been identified running from the scene!” “They’ve identified a suspect!” “No they haven’t!” For God’s sake, calm down. Get at least a second source before you blast a headline over wishful thinking that never comes true.

      I’m gonna give this an ‘Amen’ with a side of ‘Uh huh’. Y’all need to calm the frick down.

      I want Miller, Bannon, Mitch McConnell and Sessions gone not to mention Trump but like always what you want the most never happens 🙁

          And Kushner! Definitely Kushner!

            Agreed

    • Daesai Sereiphiel

      Agreed, TheNeedle. But to be fair, the rumors from his WH sources proved right about Sean.

      • KateOSee

        People have been predicting Sean’s step down for months. Honestly, anyone who has turned on the TV in the last 5 months could’ve made a pretty good guess that it was only a matter of time.

        • MikeFeldman

          Spicer will be promoted to head of communications in the White House.

  • Roberto Alvarez-Perez

    The rats are jumping off the sinking ship. I only hope he land in jail with Trump and the rest of the Russian ass-kissers.

    I can’t believe you sent an alert out on this. Don’t get my hopes up repeatedly with rumors unless there’s more to it :/

  • TrumpsToadys.com could be the perfect vehicle for anyone who wishes to rub it in . . .

    However . . there are a few more to be found at TrumpsWebSites.com that can be used to tear apart such as the bigoted / racist / fascist Liar known as “Attorney General Sessions”.

    Sean is actually going to get ‘promoted’! Eeek! ‘Communications Director’ may be his next title! And…Trump doesn’t ‘tell his press team one thing and the media something else’. He doesn’t discuss HIS thoughts on issues before they’re sent out to ‘speak for him’. They’re winging it (or is it lying? )when asked ‘what does the President think ( about this or that)..?’ Obama’s Press Secretary said he never allowed anyone to go out and speak for him until they met with, or spoke to him on the phone, first, regarding HIS thoughts on issues. Trump and Spicer ‘haven’t discussed Russia’s interference, yet’? That’s UNACCEPTABLE! Spicer’s been asked several times over the past 5 months what Trump thinks about Russia’s interference! Trump’s administration is the worse group of amateurs trying to run the ‘most powerful country in the world’. It’s too scary to even think about that!
