After recusing himself like a coward and allowing Rosenstein and Mueller to hijack the Justice Department for two years – which ended in a bloodbath of Trump associates, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Thursday officially announced his 2020 bid for his old Senate seat in Alabama.
Jeff Sessions, 72, served in the Senate for over 20 years before President Trump chose him to be US Attorney General.
Sessions announced his run for his old Senate seat Thursday and tried to reconcile his strained relationship with President Trump.
“When I left President Trump’s cabinet, did I write a tell all book? No. Did I go on CNN and attack the President? No. Have I said a cross word about President Trump? No. And I’ll tell you why: First, that would be dishonorable. I was there to serve his agenda, not mine. Second, the president is doing a great job for America and Alabama, and he has my strong support.” Sessions said.
“Trump and I have had our ups and downs. But here’s the important part — the President is doing great work for America. When President Trump took on Washington, only one Senator out of a hundred had the courage to stand with him: me,” he added.
Sessions did not stand with Trump while he was US Attorney General and Trump fired him exactly one year ago today.
