Trump Rips Jeff Sessions Over ‘HOAX’ Russia Probe: He ‘Should be Ashamed of Himself’


President Donald Trump unloaded on former attorney general Jeff Sessions Sunday, writing he “should be ashamed of himself” for allowing the special counsel investigation into Russian election interference.

Trump first quoted Daniel Henninger, a columnist for the The Wall Street Journal, who suggested on Fox News that prosecutors were seeking a way to charge the president through his former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

“Thank you, people are starting to see and understand what this Witch Hunt is all about,” Trump added. “Jeff Sessions should be ashamed of himself for allowing this total HOAX to get started in the first place!”

Sessions, who stepped down as Trump’s attorney general after the midterm elections this year, had previously recused himself from the investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, given he worked for the Trump campaign.
