Trump Gives A Truly Insane Interview: Slanders Comey And Sessions And Threatens Mueller
Donald Trump gave an interview today to the New York Times that may have crossed from standard Trump ramblings to slander, threats and witness tampering.
Oh, and he dragged the hell out of Jeff Sessions.
He started by saying he would "never would have appointed Attorney General Jeff Sessions had he known Mr. Sessions would recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation that has dogged his presidency, calling the decision very unfair to the president.”
He went on:
“Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself, which frankly I think is very unfair to the president. How do you take a job and then recuse yourself? If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, ‘Thanks, Jeff, but I’m not going to take you.’ It’s extremely unfair — and that’s a mild word — to the president.”
Oh, so he is admitting he placed someone who he knew would be more loyal to him than to the United States? We all knew that was his reasoning behind placing someone so clearly ill equipped to take on the position. It was loyalty to Trump. Period.
