Rumors have been swirling this week that Donald Trump was preparing to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions after he publicly slammed him once again on Monday for recusing himself from the Russia investigation. Now, calls are mounting for Sessions to step down so that a more effective attorney general can be put in place.
Real Clear Politics reported that conservative radio host Mark Levin spoke out on his nationally syndicated show this week to officially call on Sessions to resign.
“The buck stops on the Attorney General’s desk, even if he recused himself as he did with the Russian matter,” Levin said. “This is not the Russian matter. And the entire [Justice] Department is out of control now and its country first, over any politician, even if I’ve known that politician for a long, long time, his attorney general now. I watch the president of the United States here now. He doesn’t deserve any of this. He didn’t do anything. He didn’t do anything.”
“And so it’s time for the Attorney General to step aside and for the president of the United States, he can make a recess appointment, not to put in a body or anything like that,” Levin continued. “He can put Dershowitz in there for all I care. He needs to put somebody in there who’s going to take a little bit more charge over what’s going on in this country.”
This comes after Trump publicly blasted Sessions hours after the FBI raided the home of the president’s attorney, Michael Cohen.
“The attorney general made a terrible mistake when he did this and when he recused himself, or he should have certainly let us know if he was going to recuse himself, and we would have used a, put a different attorney general in,” Trump said, according to Daily Mail. “So he made what I consider to be a very terrible mistake for the country. But you’ll figure that out..”
