Trump’s Attack on Sessions over Clinton Prosecution Highlights His Own ‘Weak’ Stance

Kevin Lamarque/Reuters
President Trump’s decision Tuesday to attack Attorney General Jeff Sessions over Sessions’ “position” on Hillary Clinton’s various scandals only serves to highlight Trump’s own hypocrisy on the issue — and is likely to fuel concerns from his base who see Sessions at the best hope to fulfill Trump’s immigration policies.
Trump’s attack is the latest in a series of shots Trump has launched at Sessions in recent days, annoyed still over Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from Russia investigations in March. But Trump himself was the one who flip-flopped on whether to prosecute Clinton.
The pinnacle of Trump’s anti-Clinton push came in October during the second presidential debate when Hillary Clinton, high in the polls and confident of victory in November, snarked: “You know, it’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.”
“Yeh, because you’d be in jail,” Trump fired back, clearly ratting Clinton and triggering gasps and cheers from the audience.

I like Sessions and don't want to criticize him, but he made a big blunder ceding control of the politicized and alleged Russia scandal to the Deep State. He shouldn't have let the liberal media bully him.

It's all about prosecutorial discretion. What do they want to focus on? Actual corruption in the many Hillary scandals such as pay for play at the State Dept or peck away at Trump's people and hope for a process indictment. I can honestly say that Hillary's scandals are much more clearly violations of law. Trumps people seemed to be just doing the standard looking for dirt on an opponent.
