Dana Perino: Jeff Sessions Could End Up at DHS Now That Gen. Kelly’s in the White House

On The Five, Dana Perino came up with a theory about what happens after the latest White House shakeup with Reince Preibus resigning as White House Chief of Staff and President Trump‘s current Secretary of Homeland Security Gen. John Kelly taking over.

“I’m gonna go out and say this,” she began. “I think that this was all set up for a few weeks because the president has been so upset about Jeff Sessions and his recusal in the Russia investigation that the Republicans and conservatives that came to Jeff Sessions’ defense this week all said ‘But he’s doing the best on the issue we care about most and that is immigration.’ Well, where can Jeff Sessions do even more on immigration? As the Secretary of Homeland Security.”

That sparked a big “ooooh” among her co-hosts at the table.

“So he’s playing chess and everyone else is playing checkers,” Jesse Watters reacted.

Perino continued with her prediction.

“So I think that what they’re gonna try to do is Sessions over to DHS and then how can the conservatives complain?” she asked. “And then you have a new AG, [Trump] thinks, who can fire [Robert] Mueller.”
