We’ve heard the saying since we were kids: Payback is a real son of a gun.
And now it looks like Jeff Sessions, the former attorney general in the Trump administration, may be on the verge of getting his chance to lay one hell of a hurt on his former boss.
The House Judiciary Committee, according to the Washington Post, is very close to arranging for Sessions to testify as part of the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump:
Whether Sessions shows up and testifies willingly or is subpoenaed, he’ll be under oath and subject to perjuring himself if he isn’t forthcoming.
But here’s the twist: This would give Sessions the perfect opportunity to help destroy the man who couldn’t wait to dump him from the Justice Department the minute he recused himself from overseeing the investigation conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Trump was brutal in his criticism of of Sessions, telling Chuck Todd of NBC News:
“‘I would say if I had one do over, it would be, I would not have appointed Jeff Sessions to be attorney general.’ When Todd asked Trump to clarify if he thought appointing Sessions was his ‘worst mistake,’ the president reiterated ‘yeah, that was the biggest mistake'”
Now that “mistake” may soon have the spotlight and be able to do tremendous damage to Trump, even if the president isn’t impeached and convicted, because if Sessions reveals damaging information about Donnie, it could help sink his reelection chances.
There’s another saying you’ve probably heard, too: Karma’s a bitch. How sweet it would be if karma takes a giant bite out of the felon in the White House.
