REPORT: TRUMP CONSIDERING TED CRUZ AS REPLACEMENT FOR JEFF SESSIONS

The Washington Post is reporting that President Donald Trump is considering replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions with Texas Senator Ted Cruz.

During the Republican primaries, Senator Cruz was the President’s most vocal opponent. During the Republican National Convention, Mr. Cruz failed to even endorse Mr. Trump during his speech.

“Among the names being floated as possible Sessions replacements are Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and former New York City mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, according to people familiar with the conversations.
Giuliani dismissed a report floating his name as a possible attorney general and told CNN that Sessions “made the right decision under the rules of the Justice Department” to recuse himself. He did not return a message seeking comment.
Cruz had said previously that he “did not think it was necessary to appoint a special counsel,” but when Mueller was appointed, he praised him as “an excellent choice.” A spokesman for Cruz could not be reached for comment.”

Senator Cruz may have a hard time being confirmed by the U.S. Senate. He is supposedly loathed by his fellow Senators.
