Fox News legal expert Judge Andrew Napolitano said on Thursday that he understands President Donald Trump’s frustration with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who the judge thinks shouldn’t have accepted the job, 100% Fed Up reports.
In an interview with the New York Times published on Wednesday, Trump criticized the former senator over his decision to recuse himself from the probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
“I don’t think Jeff Sessions should have recused himself… And I said at the time and I’ll say it now — that he probably should not have accepted the nomination to be attorney general,” Napolitano said during his interview on Fox & Friends.
Napolitano believes Sessions’ meetings with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak weren’t enough reason for him to recuse himself from the investigation.
The judge also thinks Trump is prodding Sessions to resign, arguing that the latest criticism of his top cop is probably “demoralizing” for the former surrogate during the campaign.
“We have one of the biggest investigations since that the Justice Department has investigated since Watergate being run by somebody who was not appointed by the president of the United States,” Napolitano said. “So that’s President Trump’s frustration and I understand that.”
