Trump Analyzes Why Sessions Is Struggling in His Alabama Senate Race

It was the recusal heard 'round the world. Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he'd be stepping down from the investigation into Russian collusion in 2017, which gave the oversight authority to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel. President Trump was furious about the whole affair. So much so that he publicly ridiculed his AG as "weak" and, most infamously, "beleaguered."

In Tuesday night's Alabama Senate race for his old seat, Sessions failed to notch a majority and now finds himself in a runoff with Republican Tommy Tuberville, a former Auburn University football coach. Trump gleefully surmised that his old AG's past had come back to haunt him.

Sessions served in the Senate for 20 years until Trump appointed him to his administration in 2017. After being berated by Trump for months for his Russia recusal, Sessions resigned in November 2018.

Roy Moore, who you may remember was the controversial Republican pick for the Alabama Senate a few years ago, failed to qualify for the runoff, which takes place on March 31. The winner will take on Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) in November.
