President Trump is up early this morning! And the Attorney General is on his mind. POTUS quotes Trey Gowdy who is busy walking a mile in the President’s shoes, so to speak. And Trey nails it! Apparently, POTUS agrees with him, one hundred percent.
During a television interview, Trey was supposing if he were the President of the United States, and what he would think of Jeff Session’s recusal. (MORE BELOW.)
The recusal occurred in March of 2017. It was a stunning announcement, as reports Fox News in early March, the headline of the day was, “Sessions announces recusal from Russia-related probes, denies misleading Congress.” Wow.
America was shocked at Sessions’ recusal from “all things Russian.” On one hand, it was the proper thing for the leader of the DOJ to do. On the other hand, Session’s left our 45th President exposed.
It was shortly after the recusal, that Rod Rosenstein ordered the special counsel with Robert Mueller at the helm. And in June of 2017, Mueller hires a team of partisan democrat lawyers to go after the President.
“This is going to be a witch hunt,” Gingrich said on “Fox News Sunday.” And thus, the witch hunt began. This is what POTUS says just moments ago. (MORE BELOW.)
President Trump on the Witch Hunt in a triple-tweet:
In the series of tweets, POTUS quotes, “Rep.Trey Gowdy, “I don’t think so, 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 in the most important case in the office, I would be frustrated too…and that’s how I read that – Senator Sessions, why didn’t you tell me before I picked you………There are lots of really good lawyers in the country, he could have picked somebody else!”
Then President Trump ends the Gowdy quote with “And I wish I did!” (TWEETS BELOW.)
