Details come out about the humiliating hell-fire on Sessions when Trump found out about Mueller

President Trump need not have done anything illegal regarding Russia’s alleged role in the 2016 election in order to be concerned about a limitless “show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” special counsel ‘investigation.’

That’s why it was so concerning when the principled yet loyal man he placed in the nation’s top law enforcement spot, Jeff Sessions, recused himself from the Russia investigation. Instead of someone who would stick with the facts and conduct a fair probe within the scope of the question itself, we are stuck with an ever-widening investigation by a legal team made up almost entirely of Democratic operatives determined to find out whether Trump paid the correct taxes on that lemonade stand he operated when he was six.

The New York Times has revealed more details about the exact moment President Trump first learned of special counsel Robert Mueller’s appointment and, as it happens, Jeff Sessions was in the room.

And it wasn’t pretty.

The May 17 meeting included Sessions, Vice President Pence, White House counsel Donald McGahn II, and several others, and was initiated to discuss candidates to replace recently-fired F.B.I. Director James Comey.

While discussions were underway, McGahn reportedly received a call from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who told the White House counsel about Mueller’s appointment.

McGahn then told President Trump and the assembled group, and Trump immediately directed his ire toward his attorney general.

Michael Schmidt and Maggie Haberman report that Trump “unleashed a string of insults on his attorney general” in front of everyone and “told Mr. Sessions that choosing him to be attorney general was one of the worst decisions he had made, called him an ‘idiot,’ and said that he should resign.”

Essentially, Trump blamed the entire predicament on Sessions, which in actuality was probably true – although Trump certainly could have handled it better.

After the browbeating, Sessions was “ashen and emotional,” and “told the president he would quit and sent a resignation letter to the White House.”

According to the Times: “Mr. Sessions would later tell associates that the demeaning way the president addressed him was the most humiliating experience in decades of public life.”

However, the resignation letter was ultimately rejected after Pence, Steve Bannon, and then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus advised the president that firing Sessions would “only create more problems.”
