Trump’s latest comments about the ‘do-nothing’ Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, it’s easy to assume that the AG should start brushing up his resume. We would like to say that THIS could be the fire that light Sessions bottom but that just isn’t likely at this point…
“I just would love to have him do a great job,” the president said.
His comments follow a torrent of tweets over the last week in which Trump has ridiculed his attorney general, publicly questioned why he’s refused to take action against Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, whose security clearance the president has threatened to revoke, and revealed he previously tried to fire Sessions.
“How the hell is Bruce Ohr still employed at the Justice Department? Disgraceful! Witch Hunt!” Trump tweeted late Wednesday.
Allegedly Ohr played a key role in selling the so-called Steele dossier, commissioned by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS and paid for by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee. Ohr was grilled over his involvement behind closed doors on Tuesday by the House Oversight and Judiciary committees
Messages indicate Ohr continued to communicate with dossier author Steele after the FBI fired him as a source in late 2016 due to his contacts with the media, Fox News reported.
All of which, Sessions has yet to do anything about…. much like everything else.
Trump has repeatedly lashed out at Sessions on social media over the attorney general’s decision last year to recuse himself from the FBI’s Russia investigation. Last week, the president tweeted that Sessions “doesn’t understand what is happening underneath his command position” and told “Fox & Friends” that his attorney general had “never taken control of his department.”
The president also said that the only reason he named Sessions attorney general was the former Alabama senator’s early support in the 2016 presidential election.
Never the less, Trump remained classy and somewhat optimistic that Sessions might actually start doing his job.
