In a Department of Justice press conference Thursday morning, Attorney General Jeff Sessions was hit with a barage of questions regarding President Trump’s comments to the New York Times, indicating he regretted hiring Sessions.
Trump stated that if he’d known Sessions was going to recuse himself from the Russia investigation, he would’ve appointed someone else as attorney general. CLICK HERE for audio clip of Trump’s interview.
At Thursday morning’s press conference, Sessions was asked, “How seriously are you considering possibly resigning?”
“We in this department of Justice will continue every single day to serve in the national interest, and we whole-heartily join in the priorities of President Trump,” Sessions told reporters. “He gave us several directives, one is to dismantle transnational criminal organizations. That’s what we’re announcing today.” (Scroll down for video.)
“I have the honor of serving as attorney general. It’s something that goes beyond any thought I would have ever had for myself. We love this job, we love this department, and I plan to continue to do so as long as that is appropriate,” he confirmed.
“How can you serve from here on out if you don’t have the confidence of the President?” Sessions was asked.
“We’re serving right now,” Sessions responded. Watch the video of his comments below:
