President Donald Trump on Tuesday blamed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the ongoing investigation into Russian election interference, suggesting in a morning tweet that the probe could have been shut down by now if Sessions hadn’t recused himself.
“The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax continues, all because Jeff Sessions didn’t tell me he was going to recuse himself,” Trump said in the tweet. “I would have quickly picked someone else. So much time and money wasted, so many lives ruined…and Sessions knew better than most that there was No Collusion!”
