Right-wing firebrand Ann Coulter indicated that she thought President Donald Trump was wrong to blame Attorney General Jeff Sessions for the naming of special counsel Robert Mueller in the investigations into the alleged Russian elections meddling and collusion with the Trump campaign.
“Who’s going to tell Trump?” she tweeted Thursday. “It wasn’t Sessions’ recusal that led to Special Counsel; It was Trump’s own boasting to Lester Holt 2 [months] later.”
Coulter was referring to the public criticism that Trump made of his own attorney general in an interview with the New York Times Wednesday.
“Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” he said to the New York Times.
