President Donald Trump renewed his criticism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday, complaining in an interview with The Hill that “I don’t have an Attorney General. It’s very sad.” he protects his personal interest to national.
Trump was once again critical of Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the ongoing investigations related to the 2016 presidential election, a decision that has removed him from any role in the ongoing investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia — an inquiry now headed by special counsel Robert Mueller.
Trump said Sessions had succumbed to pressure applied by Democrats during his confirmation process, leading to what the president said was was the attorney general’s unnecessary recusal.
“He gets in and probably because of the experience that he had going through the nominating when somebody asked him the first question about Hillary Clinton or something he said ‘I recuse myself, I recuse myself,’” Trump said.
When asked whether Trump will fire Sessions, as some have speculated, the president demurred.
“We’ll see what happens. A lot of people have asked me to do that,” he said. “And I guess I study history, and I say I just want to leave things alone, but it was very unfair what he did.”
Unfortunately replacing Sessions would be no easy task for Senate Republicans, some of whom suspect that perhaps only a sitting senator could win confirmation as Sessions’ successor — that is, someone who could be trusted not to interfere with Mueller’s investigation. Finding a willing replacement, given the constant turmoil within the Trump administration and the criticism the president has heaped on Sessions, could prove difficult as well.
Its either sessions is been blackmailed or just a betray.
