So I've been thinking about Jeff Sessions since MissM posted her thoughts yesterday. I've been waffling between deep state or dupe for some time. Lately I've been thinking he was duped by a Sally Yates DOJ but there's been one thing bothering me, a quote by a former Trump campaign worker in an article he wrote here. Here's the quote, "Now having one of the most successful boutique law firms in the country, Cooper put aside his open disdain for Donald Trump to help his old friend prep for the confirmation process."

So I tried to find confirmation that Cooper did indeed have an open disdain for Donald Trump, which might indicate that Sessions was influenced by his friends feelings toward Donald Trump, but gave up, until yesterday. It seems I was looking in all the wrong places. Forgive me for posting this article from TPM, scroll on by if you're not interested. Does it prove Sessions was a deep state plant...no but it does give us an idea about the man who sat down with Sessions and helped him pick his staff.

While Sessions helped lead a crusade with Cruz to defeat the 2013 bipartisan immigration bill, he also found himself drawn to the New York real estate mogul-turned-reality TV star. By Cooper’s account, Sessions and then-candidate Trump were more “simpatico” on trade, and the presence of a former Sessions aide, Stephen Miller, on Trump’s campaign brought the Alabama senator even closer into the fold.

Sessions’ February 2016 endorsement of Trump – his first from a sitting senator — was a major achievement for Trump’s campaign.

“I didn’t realize that it was a losing cause from the beginning,” Cooper said, referring to his efforts to get Sessions to endorse Cruz instead.

What was a losing cause for Cooper was a winning bet for Sessions, whose early support of Trump secured him an attorney general appointment — a previously unthinkable ascent for the 71-year-old hard-right conservative, 30 years after the Senate rejected his nomination to be a federal judge.

Despite an ugly intra-party fight between their respective candidates, Cooper and Sessions maintained “friendly adversarial contact” during the GOP primary, though Cooper admitted that “it wasn’t easy.”

“Trump of course was extraordinarily hostile, scornful, ridiculing Ted in every possible way — ‘Lyin’ Ted’ — so those things bruise, but it didn’t affect the relationship,” Cooper said, though he and Sessions did fall out of contact during the general election.

After Sessions was nominated for attorney general, however, he sought his old friend’s assistance to prepare for what was shaping up to be a grueling confirmation process.

I believe congressional districts are determined by number of people regardless of whether here legally or illegally so the presence of the citizenship question is irrelevant to that issue.

I'd been waiting for someone to make that point.

Let me put it another way, mr narciso. How easy is it for collectivists with strong in group preference to roll over a nation of rugged individualists with weak in group preference?

Rocco @ 10:49,

There are a lot of Trump supporters who initially supported other candidates. A lot of those voters were initially turned off by Trump's unique personality and style never before seen in a presidential candidate. A lot of those conservative voters knew of Trump's past as a liberal Democrat and were wary of his conservative bonafides. A lot of conservative voters didn't think Trump had a chance to defeat Hillary. How many of those voters realized they were wrong about Trump and are now ardent Trump supporters?

Chuck Cooper is a red-blooded conservative from Alabama who originally supported Ted Cruz. How many JOMers originally supported Cruz? I bet more JOMers initially supported Cruz than Trump. Correct me if I am wrong but Cruz has allied with Trump on pretty much everything in the MAGA agenda hasn't he? IMO anyone who thinks either Sessions or Cooper are denizens of the Deep State/DC Establishment and were secretly trying to undermine Trump are way off base. Instead of trying to undermine fellow conservatives on your own team, why not focus on those trying to destroy the country?

The News Reports about the Department of Commerce dropping its quest to put the Citizenship Question on the Census is incorrect or, to state it differently, FAKE! We are absolutely moving forward, as we must, because of the importance of the answer to this question.

Threadkiller!

See President Trump's tweet that henry posted at 11:10!!!

The media knows how important this issue is to so many people so they print stories to demoralize folks. This is why it is important to read what President Trump tweets, and listen to what he says. You cannot trust the news people at all.

That is good news. The value of that Fake News report on the census is that it at least identified who will quit supporting Trump based on Fake News.

JM Hanes

Rocco:

"but isn't that what Trump wants to stop by including only citizens in the census?"

Trump isn't trying to exclude anyone from the census; he just proposes asking whether a respondent is a citizen or not. That way you know both how many persons you have (which determines how many representatives you get, among other things) and how many citizens you have (which determines how many eligible voters you have).

henry

Tom R... so is Trump telling the truth or shading it on this tweet?

As far as i can tell, he'll have that question on the census in #twoweeks.

Dropping its quest is different than printing it on the forms now..perhaps the idea is to print the forms and if they win the court battle, add the citizenship question as an insert,

Maybe both? Define what he meant by "We are absolutely moving forward..."

That comment seems pretty open ended for interpretation to me.

Constitutional checks and balances question. If the SCOTUS says the citizenship question can't be on the census, would it be an impeachable offense for Trump to defy their ruling and include it anyway?

henry

clarice, could be. seems to me a trial balloon surrender (part of deal for border funding?) got too much push back, so we get a tweet to shut up about it.

The Infamous Ignatz

The prog argument of course is, by asking the question we will get a skewed number because illegals will be reluctant to complete the form if they have to either admit it or lie.
There may in fact be some merit in that argument, but if there is it is a feature not a bug to any sane person who thinks apportioning congresscritters partly by how many people have broken into the country is nuts.

clarice

Hard to argue with that, Iggy--unless you are a chief justice.

henry, I think the Roberts move is so disastrous--looking into the motives of legal actions--the Administration MUST challenge this case on remand.

I'm glad to see that the Trump supporters that challenge Trump to deliver on his promises have caused him to tweet out something that promises action.

Now we wait and see. Will Trump overtly counter his Secretary of Commerce and the unnamed DOJ attorney that emailed the bad news? Or will he stay in the shadows hoping blind trust wins the day for him?

clarice

If the district court on remand does not allow the citizenship question the Court's next term begins the first Monday in October,and in the interim the DOJ can file a Writ of Mandamus compelling the lower court to permit the citizenship question. The timing will be close but not impossible for an insert.

Rush Limbaugh is focusing mostly on the 4th of July celebration but he gave a very brief mention of the Census issue. He read Trump's tweet that it is fale news and he accepted that to be the case.

Since Rush also accepted Trump's statements on the purpose of Mueller's visit to the Whitehouse the day before the SC formed, it presents a conundrum.

clarice

It is a conundrum, Iggy, Neither you nor I apparently have what it takes to understand Nike officialdom.

jimmyk

The prog argument of course is, by asking the question we will get a skewed number because illegals will be reluctant to complete the form if they have to either admit it or lie.

I don't understand that, because if the question is simply "Are you a citizen?" then "No" does not indicate whether you are here legally or illegally. (Granted an illegal might be more reluctant to say "No," for fear of being discovered.) Or was there supposed to be a second question, like "If no, then are you here legally?" Otherwise no lying would be involved.

12.b. Have you ever renounced your United States citizenship?

12.c. Are you an alien illegally or unlawfully in the United States?

12.d.1. Are you an alien who has been admitted to the United States under a nonimmigrant visa?
