If President Trump fires him now, it will be a great example of shutting the barn door after the horses got out. According to the New York Times, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, making him the first known member of President Donald Trump’s cabinet to be interviewed as part of the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
Mr. Sessions announced in March that he had recused himself from all matters related to the 2016 election, including the Russia inquiry. The disclosure came after it was revealed that Mr. Sessions had not told Congress that he met twice with the Russian ambassador to the United States at the time, Sergey I. Kislyak, during the campaign. Mr. Sessions was an early supporter of Mr. Trump’s presidential run.
After an interview that lasted several hours, we are left to wonder if Mueller got any usable information from Sessions, given the AG’s poor and selective memory.
No reaction has been reported from the White House as the President hunts for his iPhone.
