A Furious Trump Calls On Attorney General Jeff Sessions To Do His Job
Like almost every day, President Trump set the internet on fire by calling on his attorney general to, well, do his job. For the last few months Jeff Sessions has been primarily absent from the limelight and the President’s wrath. The ongoing Robert Mueller Russia probe is changing that.
On Wednesday, President Trump took to Twitter and basically said what millions of Americans have been thinking for months. Not mincing any words, the President called on Jeff Sessions to put an end to the Russia debacle.
“This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further,” Trump tweeted. “Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!”
As you know, Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation shortly after he was confirmed as Attorney General. To no surprise, that decision has drawn Trump’s public ire on more than one occasion.
Just over a year ago, President Trump took Sessions to task for his seemingly lax attitude towards the misdeeds committed by Hillary Clinton. “Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!” the President wrote.
Several months later, in November, it looked like the AG was going to appoint a second special counsel to investigate Clinton. In a letter, Sessions directed senior federal prosecutors to explore matters concerning the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One deal.
And then…nothing happened.
Worse still, Sessions has remained mostly and disturbingly silent despite all the recently revealed corruption at the FBI and DOJ. When he did choose to speak-up, it was to defend his Deputy Director Rod Rosenstein.
