Re Sessions firing/resignation:
I wonder if he was one of the 4 black hat FIREWALLS?
If so then within 24 hours they could have lost 3 of them... CORKER, FLAKE, SESSIONS?
Is ROSENSTEIN the 4th?
If I'm correct then are we seeing all the FIREWALLS removed in short order following the mid-terms? Would this signpost an unblocking of the Dam and action on DECLAS etc.?
On August 6, 2017, one month prior to joining the Justice Department, Whitaker wrote an opinion column for CNN titled "Mueller's investigation of Trump is going too far." Then on September 22, 2017, a Justice Department official announced that Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed Whitaker to be his Chief of Staff. Then in early September 2018, Whitaker was revealed to be on the short list of President Trump's White House staff as the replacement for Don McGahn as the White House Counsel. During the commotion created by conflicting reports about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's firing, potential resignation and eventual retention on September 25, 2018, Whitaker is reported to have told officials that he would assume Rosenstein's post, while control of the Russia investigation would fall to the Solicitor General, Noel Francisco. The New York Times reported on September 25, 2018 that White House chief of staff John Kelly advised Whitaker that he would be appointed acting deputy attorney general should Rosenstein exit, and described Whitaker as a Trump loyalist who, if appointed, "could have visibility into the special counsel’s work." In addition to the deputy attorney general role, The Washington Post reported on October 10, 2018 that President Trump had also spoken with Whitaker about potentially assuming Jeff Sessions role as Attorney General. With the resignation of Jeff Sessions on November 7, 2018, Whitaker was appointed to serve as Acting Attorney General.
In October 2014,Whitaker was named a member of the Advisory Board for World Patent Marketing. In May 2018 World Patent Marketing was shut down by the Federal Trade Commission for fraud.

Was Sessions left in place and recused in order to allow certain people to feel comfortable/safe as discovery/indictments went forward?
The long-awaited Constituent Assembly elections were held on 12 November 1917. In contrast to their majority in the Soviets, the Bolsheviks only won 175 seats in the 715-seat legislative body, coming in second behind the Socialist Revolutionary Party, which won 370 seats, although the SR Party no longer existed as a whole party by that time, as the Left SRs had gone into coalition with the Bolsheviks from October 1917 to March 1918. The Constituent Assembly was to first meet on 28 November 1917, but its convocation was delayed until 5 January 1918 by the Bolsheviks. On its first and only day in session, the Constituent Assembly came into conflict with the Soviets, and it rejected Soviet decrees on peace and land, resulting in the Constituent Assembly being dissolved the next day by order of the Congress of Soviets.
As the revolution was not universally recognized, there followed the struggles of the Russian Civil War (1917–22) and the creation of the Soviet Union in 1922.
