Donald Trump hovers over the failure of Jeff Sessions to win the Republican Senate primarily in Alabama
Donald Trump finds it a shame that Jeff Sessions fails to win the Republican Senate primarily in Alabama and says “this is what happens” for his fired attorney general who makes “Mueller scam” happen
- President Trump abused Jeff Sessions, who failed to win the Republican nomination for his old seat in the Alabama Senate
- Trump destroyed Sessions because he had robbed himself of Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation – a complaint he had made while Sessions was Attorney General
- “This is what happens to someone who is loyally appointed Attorney General of the United States and then lacks the wisdom or courage to stare and end the fake Russia Witch Hunt,” Trump wrote on Twitter
- Sessions faces an election round on March 31 against former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville
- Trump had remained silent during busy primary, but Wednesday’s tweet could undermine Sessions’ attempt to return to the Senate
President Trump scolded Jeff Sessions, who he dismissed last year, after his former attorney general failed to win the Republican nomination for his old seat in the Alabama Senate.
The president, who showed that he never forgets a little and tends to be resentful, accused Sessions of refusing to oversee the special investigations of Robert Mueller Russia – a complaint he often made while Sessions Attorney General used to be.
“This is what happens to someone who is loyally appointed Attorney General of the United States and who does not have the wisdom or courage to stare and end the fake Russia Witch Hunt. Put himself back in function on FIRST DAY, and the Mueller Scam begins! ”Trump wrote on Twitter on Wednesday morning.

Mixed night: Jeff Sessions failed to get the 50 percent needed in the Republican primary to secure the Senate nomination, but is in the last two for the run-off
The president was not correct in his timing. Sessions was sworn in as attorney general on February 9, 2017, and he refused to monitor Mueller’s probe on March 2 on the advice of the department’s legal adviser.
At his hearing to confirm the Senate, Sessions denied having any contact with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign when he was an advisor to Trump. But records showed that he had talked to the then Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, at that time.
Sessions will face an election round on March 31 against former Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville after failing to win a majority to win the GOP nomination for the Senate seat he has deposited to become Trump’s lawyer.
Tuberville had 33.4 percent and Sessions had 31.6 percent, with 99 percent reporting.
Trump was silent during the busy Republican primary, but his tweet on Tuesday may have doomed Sessions’ chances of returning to the Senate.
The president is popular in the deep red state of Alabama.
The winner of the outflow in March will face Democratic Senator Doug Jones, the most threatened current re-election candidate.
Jones won the chair after revelations that his GOP opponent, Roy Moore, had inappropriate relationships with teenage girls.
Moore also ran for the Republican nomination, but failed to reach the top two in Tuesday’s primary.
The 73-year-old Sessions served in the Senate for two decades before he left to lead the Ministry of Justice led by Trump.
He was repeatedly criticized by the president after restraining himself from overseeing Mueller’s probe and handing these duties over to then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
While Jeff was Session Attorney General, Trump repeatedly expressed his anger that Sessions did not prevent himself from overseeing Robert Mueller’s Russia probe
Run-off rival: Former soccer coach Tommy Tuberville will compete against Jeff Sessions for the Republican nomination.
Jeff Sessions was the first senator to endorse Donald Trump and became his first Attorney General, but their relationship ripped over the Mueller probe and in particular Sessions’ refusal to oversee it
Trump expressed anger about Sessions on Twitter and in media interviews. He repeatedly asked Sessions to undo his refusal, which Sessions refused to do.
Sessions offered his resignation as Attorney General in November 2018 at the request of the President.
But he remained loyal to Trump and noted that he was the first US senator to endorse Trump in 2016 and claimed that he would be the most effective in promoting Trump’s agenda.
“I will have a better relationship. I know what he campaigned for. I was with him at those meetings. I saw how people reacted to his power and his power. I really think he will win again, “Sessions said Tuesday morning outside of his mobile polling station.
Tuberville, stimulated by fame of years as a soccer coach, has tried to portray itself as the political outsider in the race.
“This country is in trouble. Thank goodness we chose Donald Trump, “Tuberville said during a campaign stop in Prattville.
