The morning started with reports that president Donald Trump is very angry at attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump is angry that Sessions refused to take control over the investigation into Russian hacking and campaign spying, and instead “recused” himself, or in other words, removed himself, from the investigation. Trump was probably angry because he thought Sessions would be there to cover up Trump’s ties to Russia:
“I thought that was a pretty damning report for the president,” Miller said. “Why would the president care if Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russian investigation or not unless he wanted him to exert inappropriate influence over it. It shouldn’t really matter who’s leading the investigation unless you want the person in charge to somehow steer it in a way that benefits you.”
Article after article kept coming, talking about how pissed off Trump was at Sessions, and explaining that the Trump’s tweets about the “travel ban” were really a way for him to blow off some of the steam he has built up about Sessions. Trump effectively strangled the justice department’s case before it ever had a chance of making it before the supreme court:
The discontent was on display on Monday in a series of stark early-morning postings on Twitter in which the president faulted his own Justice Department for its defense of his travel ban on visitors from certain predominantly Muslim countries.
After all the bad stories about Sessions, it then was leaked to the press that Sessions actually offered to resign. He’s had enough with El Trumpo, and seems to be who Trump is taking out his anger on these days. Could it be that El Trumpo is getting scared?
As for Sessions, he’s ready to retire and pursue his life-long dream!
