“The big shift this week, the last several days, especially with Scaramucci, is that the president has gone on offense,” Adams said Thursday on the Twitter app Periscope. “He’s sort of been on defense on all of this Russia stuff and he’s been getting kicked around a little bit and it’s just obvious that he’s decided to go on offense. Part of that offense is that nobody’s safe. It doesn’t matter if you’re on his team or off his team. If you’re in the way, you’re in the way now.”

“And Sessions was in the way,” he added.

“The theory of persuasion would say that in this situation he’s going to try to please his boss a little bit more. And probably this was the only way this was going to happen,” Adams deduced.
