The feud between President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions continued on Friday morning as Trump hit back at Sessions’ Thursday comments where he defended himself against Trump’s attacks.
President Donald J. Trump was on Twitter Wednesday telling Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he should “un-recuse himself” from Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump made clear that he wants his attorney general to shut down the entire Russia probe.
“The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax continues, all because Jeff Sessions didn’t tell me he was going to recuse himself…I would have quickly picked someone else. So much time and money wasted, so many lives ruined…and Sessions knew better than most that there was No Collusion!”
According to sources in the administration, Trump convened an Oval Office meeting Friday that turned into a meltdown over Sessions' recusal
Even recused, as Attorney General Sessions "has the sole discretion to select and appoint a “special counsel” to investigate Russian ties
