Michael Schmidt: Jeff Sessions’ Recusal Really Set Trump Off

‘The president was obsessing about it’


SCHMIDT: "Well, Sessions had to fly down to Mar-a-Lago because the President needed to resign travel ban part two, because of the first one had been messed up. But he wasn’t taking Sessions’ calls. He realized this had to happen, the ban had to be signed, so they sent Sessions down to Florida. And the thing that Trump wanted to talk about was the travel ban. The President was obsessing about it. If you remember, this is also the same weekend that the President tweeted about the wiretapping. Sessions’ recusal really set the President off. To the President, it’s the original sin, it's the thing that leads to Mueller."
