Sessions: This Time It's Personal!

Consider this: "The core of the President’s grievance is that the Attorney General recused himself from the investigation into possible Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 election, thereby setting in motion the process that led to the appointment of Robert Mueller, the special counsel. Sessions did the right thing; according to prosecutorial ethics, he cannot supervise a review of a campaign in which he played a prominent role. Trump’s willful misunderstanding of the obligations of an Attorney General reflects a larger flaw in his Presidency and in his character—his apparent belief that his appointees owe their loyalty to him personally, rather than to the nation’s Constitution and its laws, and, more broadly, to the American people."

And this: "President Trump’s behavior, however, represents a different kind of change—one that threatens the basic norms underlying our system of government. No President in recent history has treated his Attorney General solely as a political, or even as a personal, functionary."

This head note tells it all: "Trump’s willful misunderstanding of the obligations of an Attorney General reflects a larger flaw in his Presidency and in his character."

Trump is fraid like hell.  Some Republican are saying, he committed some crimes with the Russians, and that could include laundering monies.
