Steve Bannon Praises ‘Excellent’ Jeff Sessions, Says Trump ‘Wrong’ on His Recusal (Mediaite)

Steve Bannon is publicly defending Attorney General Jeff Sessionsfrom the attacks he’s facing from President Trump.

Trump has––both privately and publicly––fumed about Sessions’ decision to recuse himself in the Russia case. Just this week, the President touted commentary from Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and attorney Joe diGenova saying he’s right to be frustrated at his AG.

Bannon sat down for an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria airing tonight, and at one point the CNN host asked if Trump’s expressed desire that he should’ve picked someone else for AG is correct.
