SESSIONS UNDER FIRE: Trump Says He ‘WISHES’ He Picked A Different AG

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.30.18

President Trump escalated his war of words with Attorney General Jeff Sessions this week, saying he “wishes” he picked a different person to lead the Department of Justice after months of “frustrating” inaction on a series of issues.

The President called-out Sessions on social media Wednesday, quoting GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy after the Republican lawmaker said, “there are lots of really good lawyers in the country, he could have picked somebody else,” to which Trump added, “I wish I did.”

Just last week, the President demanded the DOJ launch an investigation into whether the FBI had an “inside man” interacting with the Trump campaign heading into the 2016 election.

A spokesperson for the Department of Justice and the Office of the Attorney General have yet to reply to the President’s comments.
