Trump 'Wishes' He Never Hired Jeff Sessions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions first irked President Trump by recusing himself from the special counsel Russia investigation following some backlash over the answers he gave at his confirmation hearing last year. Trump thought it a weak decision and called the AG "beleaguered" on Twitter. The public shaming continued Wednesday when the president began quoting retiring Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who appeared on "CBS This Morning" to suggest Trump should've reconsidered his AG pick.

Still, Trump has not fired Sessions.

Trump probably won't be quoting another of Gowdy's interviews. On Fox News Tuesday, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee refuted Trump's claim that a "spy" infiltrated his 2016 campaign. In fact, Gowdy is "more convinced" than ever that the FBI acted appropriately to address Russian interference.
