Does Attorney General Jeff Sessions need to go?

From lying under oath about meeting with Russians, to being berated by President Trump, to nixing an Obama-era policy that allowed states to legalize marijuana, many feel it is high time Sessions step down. But others argue he is just doing his job, and some liberals warn firing Sessions would only mean replacing him with someone worse. What do you think? 🤔

President Trump called out Jeff Sessions for not opening an investigation into the Obama administration since the Russia meddling happened on Obama's watch.

Since becoming Attorney General, Sessions has angered nearly everyone for everything from his failure to properly recuse himself from the Russia investigation to his crack down on legal marijuana. 

Sessions recently rescinded an Obama-era policy of "non-interference with marijuana-friendly state laws" which allowed states to legalize pot without fear of crackdown from the federal government.

[The Obama-era policy] represented a major shift from strict enforcement to a more hands-off approach, so long as they didn't threaten other federal priorities, such as preventing the distribution of the drug to minors and cartels... The memo will be rescinded but it's not immediately clear whether Sessions will issue new guidance in its place or simply revert back to older policies that left states with legal uncertainty about enforcement of federal law.

If even Trump is fed up with his own Attorney General, why hasn't Sessions stepped down?

Liberals have long been calling on Sessions to step down. His racist approach to issues like immigration and marijuana are enough to make people believe he is unqualified to be the head law enforcement official in the country.

Even Trumpsters think Sessions should resign.

But others have defended Sessions. As Attorney General, it is his job to enforce the law whether we like it or not, and marijuana is still illegal at the federal level.

Even some liberals are hesitant about firing Jeff Sessions, arguing Trump may get rid of Sessions only to replace him with someone worse.
