Sessions is presently being accused of misleading the Congress by failing to disclose pre-election meetings with the Russian ambassador to Washington Sergey Kislyak. Earlier on Thursday Trump said in support of the Attorney General that he was an honest man and had not said anything wrong.
Accusing the Democrats of creating the fuss around Jeff Sessions, Trump said the Democrats are overplaying their hand as they lost the elections and now they have lost their grip on reality.
"Jeff Sessions is an honest man. He did not say anything wrong. He could have stated his response more accurately, but it was clearly not intentional. This whole narrative is a way of saving face for Democrats losing an election that everyone thought they were supposed to win," Trump said in a series of tweets. (ANI)
