Tucker Carlson: Trump attack on Sessions a 'useless, self-destructive act'

An aide to Sessions said the recent disparaging remarks from Trump are "nothing new", given news media reports last month that the president was upset with the attorney general over the Russian Federation recusal.

The investigation into Russian meddling in the election - and any possible ties to the Trump campaign - was a central focus of the Times interview, with the president repeating previous assertions that he is not personally being scrutinized. He discussed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who, given Sessions' recusal, acts as the head of the Justice Department on Russia-related matters. "It's something that goes beyond any thought I would have ever had for myself", Sessions said. What Trump told the Times, in short, was: Had I known what I know now, I would have never have given Sessions the AG job. "I don't think we're under investigation", he said.

Sessions was Trump's first supporter in the U.S. Senate and helped shape his political team throughout the campaign and into the transition after the November 8 election.
