President Trump Slaps Sessions, AGAIN
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been a major point of contention during Trump's Presidency. On Wednesday President Trump slammed Sessions again after an interview was given by Representative Trey Gowdy explaining why Trump is correct to be upset with the AG.

According to Fox News:

President Trump said Wednesday he wishes he had appointed someone else as attorney general, ramping up his criticism yet again of Jeff Sessions for his recusal from the Russia investigation. 


“I think what the president is doing is expressing frustration that Attorney General Sessions should have shared these reasons for recusal before he took the job, not afterward. If I were the president and I picked someone to be the country’s chief law enforcement officer and they told me later, ‘oh by the way I’m not going to be able to participate on the most important case in the office,’ I would be frustrated too,” Gowdy said on “CBS This Morning."

He added, “There are lots of really good lawyers in the country. He could have picked someone else.”

Minutes after the interview, Trump quoted those remarks on Twitter and concluded: “And I wish I did!” 

In the interview, Gowdy did back the FBI's investigation into the Trump campaign and said it was the right thing to do. Sessions should have told Trump about his conflicts or potential conflicts. It leaves to speculate how the investigation could have gone differently had he told the president.
