President Trump told the New York Times Wednesday that he regretted naming Sessions as attorney general because the former senator later recused himself from supervising a Justice Department investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. This resulted in the naming of special counsel Robert Mueller to handle the Justice Department probe:
“Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” Trump complained.
Today, Sessions has stated publicly that he is not going to resign, even thought President Trump has said he wants him to. Seems to me that Sessions may realize Trump won’t be around for very much longer, anyway.
