POTUS again knocks Session, calls him 'beleaguered'

President Trump seems to be signaling that he's ready to dump his Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a replacement who will better serve his needs. The problem is that Attorneys General are appointed to serve the needs of the people by upholding the law. 

On Monday, Trump again knocked Sessions over the Russian investigation, calling the AG "beleaguered."

If POTUS is fully innocent of the Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, and I believe he is at this time, then Sessions having recused himself should not be an issue of disloyalty.

"So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillary's crimes & Russia relations?" Trump tweeted.

While President Trump is set on blaming Jeff Sessions for the appointment of special investigator Robert Mueller in the Russian meddling, it's actually his fault that Mueller was picked. Had he not fired Comey when he did, Sessions would have likely remained on the case.

Monday's statement by Mr. Trump is just the latest in a long list of high-profile criticism he has leveled at Sessions, and it appears undeserved.

Last week, Trump went after Sessions in a New York Times interview on the Sessions self-recusal from the DoJ probe. Trump said he would not have selected Sessions for the job had he known then that he would recuse himself.

It seems to me that you don't select an AG based on one case. 

The White House insists that Trump still has confidence in Sessions, and Sessions said he plans to stay in his job "as long as that is appropriate."

This likely means that Sessions' days as AG are numbered.
