How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Trump’s Warm Relationship with AG Jeff Sessions Has Turned Icy Cold

Few elected officials were as quick and passionate about supporting Donald Trump for president than Jeff Sessions, who was a senator at the time.

His loyalty helped land him the job as attorney general.

But the cozy, warm relationship between Trump and Sessions has appeared to turn ice cold, at least for the president, the New York Times reports. 

Sources told the Times that Trump has complained for months that Sessions decided to recuse himself from the investigation into Russian meddling, a choice that eventually led to the appointment of a special counsel to take over the probe.

And on Monday, Trump unleashed a series of tweets that accused Sessions’ department of devising a “watered down, politically correct” version of the travel ban.

The public admonition of an attorney general is rare for a president.

“They wholly undercut the idea that there is some rational process behind the president’s decisions,” said Walter E. Dellinger, who served as acting solicitor general under Mr. Clinton. “I believe it is unprecedented for a president to publicly chastise his own Justice Department.”
