U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions apparently has a modus operandi for how he plans to deal with President Donald Trump's continual criticisms, according to The Daily Beast.
The website reported Tuesday that sources close to Sessions have revealed that the Attorney General is "pissed" and that he refuses to resign his position within the Trump administration.
“Sessions is totally pissed off about it,” a Sessions insider reportedly told The Daily Beast. “It’s beyond insane. It’s cruel and it’s insane and it’s stupid.”
“He’s not going anywhere,” another source reportedly close to Sessions told the website. “He is not going to resign. What he is accomplishing is way too important to the country.”
Trump, so far, has publicly lambasted Sessions three times in the last week.
Last Wednesday, Trump took down the attorney general in a New York Times interview, where he said, "Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else."
“Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself, which frankly I think is very unfair to the president,” Trump continued.
Doubling down on his remarks in the same interview, Trump reiterated, "How do you take a job and then recuse yourself? If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, ‘Thanks, Jeff, but I’m not going to take you.’ It’s extremely unfair — and that’s a mild word — to the president."
On Monday and Tuesday, the president posted two new tweets about Sessions.
On Monday, Trump tweeted, "So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crookey Hillarys [sic] crimes & Russia relations?"
Tuesday, Trump wrote, "Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!"
The Sessions insider claimed that the president's attacks on the attorney general are entirely unproductive, and only work against the greater good of the Trump administration.
