This morning, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he plans to continue doing his job “as long as that is appropriate.” His statement comes after President Trump publicly second-guessed his decision to nominate Sessions after the attorney general recused himself from the Justice Department's ongoing Russia investigation.
"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,” said Trump in the New York Times interview.
Despite Trump’s criticisms, Sessions stated that he loves his job and department, and that he will continue, “to run this office in an effective way."
“I have the honor of serving as attorney general. It’s something that goes beyond any thought I would’ve ever had for myself,” said Sessions.
Today on “Dana,” Dana discussed the attorney general’s reaction with the panel.
“I get the idea that Trump was expecting Sessions to be [his] firewall … and he didn’t get that. But then it seems that Sessions didn’t seem to care,” said Dana. “I wonder who’s getting played; is it Sessions playing them or them playing Sessions?”
