We have more anonymous sourced leaks coming straight from the White House. We can’t go a day without thinly-sourced negative news seeps out of the Trump Administration and into the waiting mouths of the thirsty media. ABC is reporting that there is tension between Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Donald Trump. In fact, according to this report, the two are at such loggerheads that Sessions has offered to resign his position.
The friction between the two men stems from the attorney general’s abrupt decision in March to recuse himself from anything related to the Russia investigation — a decision the president only learned about minutes before Sessions announced it publicly. Multiple sources say the recusal is one of the top disappointments of his presidency so far and one the president has remained fixated on.
President Trump is right to be upset at Sessions over this. It may well have fanned the flames and given Democrats and the media the inch they needed to take this controversy to the next level. What is important to note here is that Sessions offered and Trump refused to accept. President Trump is loyal, some may say to a fault. He wanted Jeff Sessions to run the Justice Department and he isn’t going to let this stop him from securing our borders and making our streets safe again.
But is this report accurate? The media has gotten a lot wrong about Trump and his administration. In their hunger to get the scoop and embarrass our President, often times they fall for stories that turn out to be wrong. It fits in almost too perfectly with what the media wants to think about Trump. Of course, the entire administration is at each other’s throats and undercutting each other. That is how it has to be. Right? Wrong.
Sessions made this decision in March, so it has taken nearly three months for this story to leak out? Something doesn’t smell right.
