Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Who is campaigning to win back his old Alabama Senate seat has tweeted at his former boss. President Trump that he is damn fortunate he recused himself. From Mueller’s investigation into Russia‘s involvement in the 2016 election. Sessions response came hours after a tweet by President Trump on Friday night. In which he voiced support for Sessions’ political opponent. Republican Alabama Senatorial candidate Tommy Tuberville.
Trump encouraged Alabama’s voters to pick former Auburn coach. Tommy Tuberville while declaring Sessions to have let our country down because of his recusal in 2017. Three years ago, after Jeff Sessions recused himself, the Fraudulent Mueller Scam began. Alabama, do not trust Jeff. He let our Country down. That’s why I endorsed Coach Tommy Tuberville “@TTuberville” the true supporter of our “#MAGA” agenda the president wrote in the tweet.

Around four hours later, Sessions fired back “@RealDonaldTrump” Look, I know your anger, but recusal required by law. I did my duty & you’re damn fortunate I did. It protected the rule of law & resulted in your exoneration. Your personal feelings don’t dictate who Alabama picks as their senator, the people of Alabama do. But it still attempted to smooth things over with the president. Despite the humiliation on Twitter. By trying to embrace Trump’s views on immigration while knocking Tuberville’s.
Tuberville Sessions wrote, “A coward who is rightly too afraid to debate me. He says you’re wrong on China & trade. He wants to bring in even more foreign workers to take American jobs. That’s not your agenda and it’s not mine or Alabama’s. I know Alabama. Trump has long held anger towards Sessions ever since March 2017. When he recused himself from the Department of Justice’s investigation. Into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election.
Sessions should have never recused himself. Trump said to the “New York Times in July 2017″. If he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job, and I would have picked somebody else. Sessions have always stated that ‘The law required that I recuse myself from the investigation”.
Sessions also said in a statement that “The specific law for the Department of Justice required. That I recuse myself from the Russian collusion investigation. To not recuse myself from that investigation, of which I was a target as a senior campaign official and a witness, would have been breaking the law. I do not and will not break the law”.
