I think it is a safe bet that Jeffy is striving mightily to save his own very sorry ass. I think it is an equally safe bet that he has something sufficient to keep Der Trumpenfuhrer from having him shot firing him. He's just that venal, and sadly, he is light years smarter than his boss, little though that amounts to. I think it is also safe to say that Jeffy finds himself riding the back of the proverbial tiger and has N0 safe exit strategy due entirely to his own venality and out and out duplicity. I feel absolutely NO sympathy for him and I hope this all eventually utterance humiliatingly destroys him. Couldn't happen to a more deserving bastard.

You are right that he is smarter than Trump (that's a low bar) and he probably knows how to use Trump to protect his position. As for an exit strategy, he is probably much safer than other Trump team members. Unlike the recently indicted congressmen and Trump, Sessions likely has a base of support throughout Congress and the Republican machine. They may well be able to protect him.

Poor Jeff . . .

He was just a Southern country lawyer who thought he was going to bring back a little bit of the good old days.

He thought being Attorney General under Individual-1 was going to be all good clean Lost Cause Neoconfederate fun. Just some good old boys burning some lower case t's (t for tolerance :-D ) on uppity n$%^%^&rs yards, throwing a few long haired pothead hippies in jail for life, and putting some crying brown kids in cages as an example for the others.

He had no idea his good old boy Southern innocence was being used by those big mean mobbed up New Yorkers. He thought all that stuff about the mafia in New York was just in the movies. He couldn't have imagined such nice white men would be involved with the mean old Russians. It is enough to give a Southern gentlemen like Jeff the vapors.

Poor Jeff . . .

No; each position requires its own confirmation hearing.

I thought he could temporarily fill the spot with someone who's already been confirmed at a cabinet level post, like, say, Betsy DeVos, for 60 or 90 days while a new nominee goes through confirmation.

A person who is already Senate confirmed can serve temporarily for 210 days in an "acting" capacity.

Trump seems a bit unhinged. So many disloyal people, DeSantis, Sessions, etc. He still hasn't found the author of that NYT opinion article.

#BREAKING: Trump eviscerates Sessions: "I have no attorney general" http://hill.cm/K4UCbOr
“I’m so sad over Jeff Sessions because he came to me. He was the first Senator that endorsed me. And he wanted to be Attorney General, and I didn’t see it,” he said.

“And then he went through the nominating process and he did very poorly. I mean, he was mixed up and confused, and people that worked with him for, you know, a long time in the Senate were not nice to him, but he was giving very confusing answers. Answers that should have been easily answered. And that was a rough time for him.”

Trump demurred on whether he might one day fire the attorney general.

“We’ll see what happens. A lot of people have asked me to do that. And I guess I study history, and I say I just want to leave things alone, but it was very unfair what he did,” he said, referring to the recusal decision.

“And my worst enemies, I mean, people that, you know, are on the other side of me, in a lot of ways including politically, have said that was a very unfair thing he did.”

He concluded: "We’ll see how it goes with Jeff. I’m very disappointed in Jeff. Very disappointed."

Well, doing so might save Trump from being punched someday, as Cruz is the only human being thing on Earth with a more punchable face.

On the one hand, Cruz couldn't get confirmed because he is universally despised in the Senate.

On the other hand, Cruz could get quickly confirmed because he is universally despised in the Senate.

ABC: Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigns at Trump's request:
Jeff Sessions has resigned as attorney general effective immediately after being asked to do so by President Trump, sources told ABC News.

"At your request, I am submitting my resignation," Sessions wrote in an undated letter to the president.
....We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well! A permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date.
