On one of his most recent Twitter tirades, Donal Trump has again lashed out at current Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The president has been very vocal about his displeasure with the Attorney General ever since he recused himself from the ongoing Russia investigation.
In a series of morning tweets, the president followed up on comments made by Rep. Trey Gowdy against Sessions on a segment of Wednesday’s “CBS This Morning.” Given the Attorney General’s well known dislike of marijuana and refusal to reconsider federal policies regarding its legalization, many in the cannabis industry are waiting with baited breath for a time when Sessions no longer holds the position.
President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that he wishes he had picked someone other than Jeff Sessions to be attorney general.
In a series of tweets citing Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, Trump unleashed yet another attack on Sessions, who, as a senator, was one of the first mainstream Republicans to publicly endorse the real estate magnate’s candidacy for president.
Gowdy made the comments about Sessions on Wednesday’s edition of “CBS This Morning.”
Once friendly with the attorney general, Trump has targeted much of his wrath over the Russia probe at the former Alabama senator after Sessions recused himself last year from the Justice Department’s probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump’s attorneys in the Russia probe, told CNBC that Trump still seems frustrated over Sessions for the recusal “because he believes he should not have in the first place.”
The Justice Department declined to comment.
With Sessions seemingly in the dog house and potentially on his way out of the current administration, do you think this is a positive thing for marijuana legalization?
