Donald Trump has publicly come out to denote one of his own in the administration: Jeff Sessions. On Wednesday, Trump took to Twitter to blitz Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who is overseeing the Justice Department. House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Trey Gowdy was quoted in his series of tweets, saying that the president could’ve done a better job at picking the “nation’s top cop.” Trump retweeted that, saying that he wished he did. After tweeting several quotes from Gowdy lamenting Sessions, Trump added his own thoughts: “‘There are lots of really good lawyers in the country, he could have picked somebody else!’ And I wish I did!”
It’s also worth noting that Gowdy has not said these statements in an article or a television interview. Trump is quoting Gowdy’s words, but there is no paper trail. Trump has a history of falsifying quotes, so this could be another case of that.

Drama Between Trump and Sessions
The relationship between Trump and Sessions went sour after the New York Times reported that Trump wanted Sessions to rescind his recusal from the investigation into Russia’s election interference. He is mad that Sessions is doing his job, and is not being his lapdog.
Robert Mueller and his investigative team have sunk their teeth into this incident, reporting the request as a potential form of obstructed justice. Trump has repeatedly denied that his campaign conspired with Russia to undermine his opponents and to ensure that he won the 2016 presidential election. He has repeatedly attacked those close to Mueller, and called the whole operation a “witch hunt.”
How Long Is The Robert Mueller Investigation Going To Take?
Special prosecutor investigations take an average of 904 days, much longer than Mueller’s one-year investigation thus far. It seems like the Mueller probe is steadily progressing, slowly catabolizing political figures that they think are of interest.
