AWOL AG Sessions unloaded on President Trump Thursday afternoon in a rare statement in response to the President’s interview with FOX & Friends this morning.
Sessions said in the statement posted on Twitter by DOJ spox Sarah Isgur Flores, “I took control of the Department of Justice the day I was sworn in, which is why we have had unprecedented success at effectuating the President’s agenda.”
Sessions then took it to the next level and unloaded on President Trump.
“While I am the Attorney General, the actions of the Justice Department will not be improperly influenced by political considerations. I demand the highest standards, and where they are not met, I take action,” Sessions continued.
President Trump blasted AWOL Jeff Sessions during an interview with Ainsley Earhardt on FOX and Friends which aired on Thursday Morning.
This afternoon FOX News contributor and former GOP lawmaker Jason Chaffetz weighed in on Jeff Sessions.
Jason Chaffetz: I think he’s one of the most ineffective Attorney Generals we’ve ever had in this nation. Donald Trump was right. He should have told the president before he took that job that he would have to recuse himself… He has not pursued a number of prosecutions… I don’t believe him. I really don’t believe him.
