Sessions is the perfect poster boy for the Trump administration. Trump is so stupid he does not realize the Wall of Resistance coming his way . This has been seen since the American Revolution. Maintaining a democracy is not easy.

The so-called "Moderate" Senator Susan Collins of Maine is firmly behind Sessions.
How is the world did anyone ever consider her "Moderate"?

One might suppose that Trump's model of a good lawyer is his mentor Roy Cohn. Cohn was a despised and unethical person who served on the prosecution of the Rosenbergs and as a assistant to Joseph McCarthy. Like Trump, he liked to be the center of attention. These are winner take all people who care less about what others think and, I think, believe democracy is an inconvenient institution which they must subvert in any way possible.
