WASHINGTON (Circa) - President Donald Trump said on Twitter Wednesday he wished he picked someone else then Jeff Sessions to serve as attorney general.
The president's tweet comes after The New York Times published a report claiming that President Trump asked Sessions to rescind his recusal from the investigation into Russia's interference from the 2016 presidential election.
The Times report also stated that Sessions flew to Florida to meet with Trump at Mar-a-Lago in March 2017 and it was during their dinner that Trump asked Sessions to rescind the recusal. The attorney general refused Trump's request, according to The New York Times.
The head of the special counsel's investigation into Russia meddling, Robert Mueller, was reported to be focusing his investigation now on obstruction of justice, according to CNN.
