REPORT: Trump White House Weighing Replacing Judge Roy Moore With Jeff Sessions

Trump White House officials are considering replacing Jeff Sessions with Judge Roy Moore, installing the Attorney General back to his former Senate seat. 

New York Times reports:

One idea now being discussed under this scenario, brought up by two different White House officials who spoke on condition of anonymity, would be for Gov. Kay Ivey of Alabama to immediately appoint Attorney General Jeff Sessions to what had been his seat when it becomes vacant again. Mr. Sessions remains highly popular among Alabama Republicans, but his relationship with President Trump has waned since he recused himself from the investigation of the role that Russia played in last year’s campaign.

As The Hill notes, “It is unclear how, if Moore is elected, the seat would become vacant.”

Judge Roy Moore is under siege from the mainstream media and political class after the Washington Post published sexual advancement allegations against the Alabama GOP Senate candidate.

On Thursday the far left Washington Post accused Judge Moore of dating a 14 year-old girl in 1979.

Judge Moore has denied the charges and says he’s going to reveal the motivations behind the WaPo hit piece in the next few days.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters today that Moore should drop out of the race.

When asked if he believes the allegations, McConnell replied, “I believe the women, yes.”

McConnell is looking into supporting a “write-in candidate.”

Moore responded to McConnell on Twitter, saying “The person who should step aside is @SenateMajLdr Mitch McConnell. He has failed conservatives and must be replaced. 

As The Gateway Pundit reported, Axios says Republican swamp creatures may ask RINO hack Luther Strange who lost to Moore during the primary and Republican Rep. Robert Aderholtto to run as a write-in candidates.

It gets worse…

According to this Axios report, the Republican establishment hacks may even try to delay the Senate race or block Moore if he wins since it’s too late to remove him from the ballot!

Axios reports:

They’ve also weighed asking Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey to delay the Dec. 12 election to early next year. But she has already pushed it back once, after she assumed the role of governor in April when her predecessor was removed, and this option would likely inspire Moore and his team to file a lawsuit in court.

The New York Times reported that McConnell may not seat Moore even if he wins!

 Republican senators and their advisers, in a flurry of phone calls, emails and text messages, discussed fielding a write-in candidate, pushing Alabama’s governor to delay the Dec. 12 special election or even not seating Mr. Moore at all should he be elected. In an interview, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, declined to say whether he would agree to seat Mr. Moore should he win. Mr. McConnell deferred a question about a possible write-in campaign by Senator Luther Strange, the current occupant of the seat, to Mr. Strange.

On Monday afternoon, NRSC chairman Cory Gardner released a statement saying, “I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office.”
