On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) stated that the departure of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his replacement by Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker is “a kind of slow-motion Saturday Night Massacre,” and “a break the glass moment.” Blumenthal said, “It’s a break the glass moment. Our democracy is under attack because the president has completely broken the norms of the normal succession process. It’s a kind of slow-motion Saturday Night Massacre, as occurred under President Nixon. And the man he’s chosen is someone who provided a roadmap for how to stifle and strangle the special counsel investigation.
