Sessions Fires Back at Trump in Blistering Statement

Attorney General Jeff Sessions rebuked President Trump in a statement on Thursday, declaring that he would protect the Department of Justice from “political considerations.”

In an earlier interview with “Fox & Friends,” Trump lambasted Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia investigation. “Jeff Sessions should have told [me] that he was going to recuse himself,” Trump said.

“What kind of a man is this?” the president asked about Sessions. “The only reason I gave him the job [is] I felt loyalty.”

The interview clearly didn’t sit well with Sessions, who defended the men and women of the Department of Justice.

“While I am Attorney General, the actions of the Department of Justice will not be improperly influenced by political considerations,” Sessions wrote. “No nation has a more talented, more dedicated group of law enforcement investigators and prosecutors than the United States.”
