On Thursday morning, it was revealed President Trump expressed regretful dismay over choosing Jeff Sessions as his attorney general for the administration. His disappointment primarily stems from Sessions choosing to recuse himself from the Russia probe, though Trump states there are other conflicts as well.
In response to Trump’s remarks in the interview, in which he also gives a stern warning to special counsel Robert Mueller and open disdain towards Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, Sessions’ representatives are claiming he has no intentions of resigning from his position.
Bloomberg Politics also confirmed Sessions’s statement of response:
“U.S. official says Atty Gen. Jeff Sessions doesn’t intend to resign after his recusal on Russia probe was criticized by President Trump in New York Times interview.”
Despite Trump’s criticism of Sessions, the attorney general and the DOJ did just successfully complete an investigation into one of the largest fraud scandals in history.
