Sessions To Blame For Mueller’s Witch Hunt

By

If we were to point the exact moment when Special Counsel Mueller got involved, it was when AG Sessions decided to rescue himself from the Russian investigation.

Sessions left the door wide open for Rod Rosenstein to appoint Mueller.

Sessions is to blame for everything.

It’s ‘incredibly unfair to the American people’ and to Trump that the attorney general dropped the Russia collusion probe’s reins

Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal from the probe into allegations of collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian interests led to “this incredible witch hunt” that has been “incredibly unfair to the American people,” former Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie said on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” Thursday.

“That bad decision by the attorney general to recuse himself has borne out this incredible witch hunt that the president has had to live through over these last 18 months — incredibly unfair to the American people,” Bossie said.

“Look — this investigation has been going on almost two years, cost the American taxpayer over $25 million bucks,” Bossie added. “And the attorney general is a good man. However, the president is frustrated by the attorney general’s decision.”

Sessions, the first senator to endorse Trump’s 2016 presidential bid, stunned the president in March 2017 — just one month after being sworn in as attorney general — with the recusal that removed him from overseeing the investigation that has dominated the political scene since then.

Sessions’ action left Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in charge of the investigation and he promptly appointed special counsel Robert Mueller in May 2017. The probe appears to have become mainly focused on allegations of obstruction of justice in Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

Tensions mounted between the president and his attorney general over the past year and a half, and Trump has often criticized Sessions in speeches, media interviews and on Twitter.
Most recently, Trump said during an interview that aired Thursday on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” that he “put in an attorney general that never took control of” the Department of Justice (DOJ).
