Trump berated Sessions in Oval Office after Mueller appointment

Trump berated Sessions in Oval Office after Mueller appointment

The president rejected his resignation, however, because of the bad optics that would likely follow him after firing both his Federal Bureau of Investigation director and national security adviser earlier in the administration, The New York Times reported Thursday.

Mr Trump reportedly erupted during a meeting at the White House with senior advisers on May 17 when he was told of Mr Mueller's appointment.

Immediately after learning of the appointment of a special counsel to investigate his campaign ties to Russia, President Donald Trump "humiliated" Attorney General Jeff Sessions in the Oval Office with a tirade of brutal insults, per the New York Times.

Brandin Cooks: Will Saints regret trading him to Patriots?
One thing Brady didn't lack on Thursday night was time to throw, whether to Cooks or another target. "They played really fast". Coincidentally, another solid-yet-unspectacular former No. 1 overall pick was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week.

Sessions later told associates that Trump's demeaning tone during the conversation was the most humiliating experience he's undergone in decades of public life, the Times reported.

Accusing Mr. Sessions of "disloyalty", Mr. Trump unleashed a string of insults on his attorney general.

Trump reportedly told Sessions that believed Mueller's appointment was his fault for recusing himself in March from the Russian Federation investigation.

The court had earlier accepted an appeal against the independence referendum, whose celebration is now illegal under Spanish law. There is no official "no" campaign because most of the opposition is snubbing the vote.

At one point Mr Trump demanded that Mr Sessions stand down, but then turned down the Attorney General's resignation when it was offered.

Trump has made little secret of his disdain for Sessions in recent months, publicly berating the attorney general throughout the summer after telling the Times he would not have chosen Sessions for the job had he known Sessions would recuse himself.

Sessions has continued to plow ahead ever since, hoping to carry out immigration policies that were key to Trump's platform previous year. And even though Trump reportedly said again in July that he wanted Sessions to leave his position, once again Sessions remained.

No Trust Vote till Sep 20 : Madras HC
The Madras High Court on Thursday said there will be no floor test in the Tamil Nadu assembly till September 20. Stalin said he had asserted earlier that he will approach the court if Rao fails to address his concerns.

Sessions, meanwhile, no longer considers Trump a friend, but is enduring the complete disrespect of his boss because he doesn't want to lose this opportunity as the nation's top justice official to execute his career-long goal of implementing the immigrant-free country he's always dreamed about.
