Liberty Counsel Chairman Mathew Staver is reacting to the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, saying Sessions has many fine qualities but made a terrible mistake that cast a shadow over everything else he did at the Justice Department.
“Jeff Sessions is a good man. He’s an honorable person and he’s done very well on religious freedom. However, anybody who serves under the president needs to have the president’s blessing and President Trump, for good reason, got concerned with Jeff Sessions, even though he was loyal during the campaign and he’s been faithful during his term.
“However, if you go back to this whole Russia investigation, it was Jeff Sessions who actually pushed the first domino by recusing himself. He didn’t need to recuse himself,” said Staver.
Listen to the full interview as Staver explains why he does not believe Sessions needed to recuse himself and names one person he strongly hopes is not in line to be the next attorney general.
