Angus King: Getting Rid of Jeff Sessions Is a Step Toward Getting Rid of Bob Mueller

‘I don’t really understand why the president keeps going after him on this’

EXCERPT:

KING: "I don’t really understand why the president keeps going after him on this. Rudolph Giuliani two days ago said Jeff Sessions made the right decision. He had no -- he had to make that decision to recuse himself, it was the right thing to do under the law and the regulations as -- as they exist. The problem is, what we’re seeing and sort of feeling is that getting rid of Jeff Sessions is a step toward getting rid of Bob Mueller. I think that seems to be the ultimate goal here and that would be very damaging to the country, to the interests of the country and getting to the bottom of this and to the president particularly if he had -- doesn’t have anything to hide which he keeps saying."
