Is It True What Trump Just Said About Sessions? Your Comments?

After describing Attorney General Jeff Sessions as “beleaguered” on Monday, President Donald Trump continued to go after him Tuesday, characterizing the attorney general as “weak.”

Trump’s early morning tweet came as Washington has been abuzz with rumors over the possibility that Trump wants Sessions to step down and is already looking at candidates to replace him.

 

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!” Trump tweeted.

Earlier in the morning, he had sent a previous tweet targeting Sessions.

 

“Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign – “quietly working to boost Clinton.” So where is the investigation A.G. @seanhannity,” Trump tweeted.

The two Tuesday tweets were similar in theme to one Trump issued Monday, in which he called Sessions “beleaguered.”

“So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?” Trump tweeted Monday morning.

Although Sessions was a key supporter of Trump in the 2016 election, his decision in March to recuse himself from the Justice Department’s investigation of Russian meddling in the election rankled the president, who vented to The New York Times last week that he would not have named Sessions as attorney general had he known Sessions would recuse himself. Trump called Sessions’ action “unfair to the president.”

Despite the speculation, Sessions, who according to June media reports had at one time had offered to resign, said last week he had no plans to step down.

Trump’s renewed Twitter jabs at Sessions prompted rounds of speculation that he was planning to fire his attorney general.

The Washington Post reported Monday that Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was a possible replacement, as was former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Both said Monday they were not seeking the job.

However, rumors that Sessions is on the outs continue to swirl.

Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh said Monday that “Trump is going to have to, I think, dismiss him.”

Meanwhile, conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt tweeted that he had his suspicions about Sessions’ future confirmed by White House communication director Anthony Scaramucci.

 

“You’re probably right” @Scaramucci tells me re my reading of @realDonaldTrump Tweets that @POTUS wants AG Sessions to resign,” Hewitt tweeted Tuesday.
