What Do Americans Think About Calls for the Attorney General’s Resignation?

Like most occurrences in the political climate, virtually everyone has an opinion and rarely abstains from sharing said opinions. Readers of The Hill ultimately weighed in with their thoughts regarding Sessions and individuals who have called for him to step down from his position as Attorney General:

Conservatives are angry that Sessions appears to be almost doing his job instead of wasting all of his time trying to corroborate ridiculous alt-right conspiracy theories harvested from the front page of Russia Today.

Session’s job is to follow the law and the Constitution. He did not take the oath of office to “knuckle under” Trump and Republicans on the far right.

If Sessions felt pressured enough by criticism he would have left a long time ago.
