Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff’s impeachment coup is scrambling calculations across all of American politics.
Everyone is trying to figure out if the rigged witch hunt will affect Donald Trump’s political future.
And now Jeff Sessions made a decision on the eve of impeachment that no one could believe.
Alabama Democrat Doug Jones is the most vulnerable incumbent in the nation.
Jones won a fluke victory in a 2017 special election victory to fill Sessions’ seat after the Senate confirmed Sessions as Trump’s Attorney General.
In that race, establishment Republican RINOs smeared Republican nominee Judge Roy Moore with lies and hoaxes about Moore supposedly engaging in sexual misconduct with teenage girls in the 1970s.
Donald Trump carried Alabama by over 20 points in 2016; any Republican running down ballot from the President stood a strong chance at victory.
Currently there are five Republicans in the race to take on Jones, but none broke out from the pack.
That led to speculation that former Attorney General Sessions would enter the race to win back his old Senate seat.
Those whispers grew louder as the November 8 filing deadline approached.
Politico reported that Sessions was “strongly considering” entering the race.
Some conservatives applauded that development.
Club for Growth President David McIntosh outlined in an exclusive interview with Politico why his organization would support Sessions if he ran.
Sessions has some high-profile allies pushing him to run for his old seat, including the conservative Club for Growth.
“We are hearing that Sessions is seriously considering running for Senate again and that polling indicates he would be in very good shape. The Club for Growth has in the past and would once again encourage him to run for that Senate seat,” David McIntosh, the organization’s president, told POLITICO…
…We were enthusiastic way back early on that Sessions, when he retired from the attorney general spot, might go back to the Senate,” McIntosh added. “At that point, he didn’t want to think about that because he was just finishing up one job. I’m very encouraged he’s now seriously considering it.”
But not all Republicans in Alabama agree that Sessions would romp to victory.
One top Republican unaffiliated with any candidate in the race said Sessions exhausted the benefit of the doubt with Alabama Republicans and a barrage of tweets attacking Sessions would doom his candidacy.
“There isn’t anyone who has fallen more out of favor with President Trump than Jeff Sessions. Whatever goodwill that might still exist for him among Alabama Republicans would evaporate after sustained Trump tweets,” said one Republican steeped in the race who is unaffiliated with a candidate.
Democrats also intend to make the events outlined in the Mueller report part of their articles of impeachment against the President.
As Attorney General Sessions was in the President’s inner circle when those events took place, he would be expected to answer questions.
If Sessions wanted payback against the President, any negative answer would also doom his campaign.
Sessions still has a few days left to make his decision.
While he was the first Senator to endorse Trump’s Presidential campaign and fought for his “America First” immigration and trade policies, Sessions also showed weakness in the face of the Deep State coup attempt against the President.
How Alabama voters reconcile those competing sets of facts will determine if Sessions can win his old job back.
