In an interview with the New York Times on Wednesday, Donald J. Trump bashed his Attorney General Jeff “Jethro” Sessions for recusing himself from the Justice Department’s investigation into the Russian presidential hack in 2016. Sessions’ recusal, as we all know, was a result of his undisclosed meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
“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,” said Trump.
Adding, “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.
During the interview, the President’s ire extended to Special Counsel Robert Mueller who he felt had no business looking into his family’s financial holdings.
“I think that’s a violation,” said Trump. “Look, this is about Russia.”
Donald’s anger didn’t stop there, as he went on to complain about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, whom he intimated was sympathetic to the Democrats. And of course he saved his greatest contempt for his favorite target – Former FBI James “high pockets” Comey.
Amid the continuing controversy surrounding his son Jr.’s meeting with the coterie of Kremlin-connected operatives and the most recent revelation that he had an undisclosed conversation with his pal Putin at the G-20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, it seems the Donald’s really up against it now – more than ever before. His flimsy defense that his involvement with Russia is all FAKE NEWS has been completely sapped of any credibility whatsoever. He’s become the tangerine who cried HOAX! And now he’s flailing, like a giant carp on a line. It will be Robert Mueller’s job to reel him in slowly and surely. With the size of Trump’s corpulent derriere — he’s gonna need a bigger boat!
