Tucker Presses Lewandowski: What Is the Upside to Attacking Sessions?
Tucker Carlson pressed former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski on why the president continues to publicly criticize Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Lewandowski said Trump is upset that Sessions recused himself from the Russia probe.
"What's the point of continuing to say that?" Carlson asked.
"Franz Ferdinand shouldn't have gone to Sarajevo that day, but it happened," he said, referring to the spark that set off World War I.
Carlson said the repeated attacks on Sessions show a White House staff in disarray.
"What we need to do is get the agenda done," Lewandowski said.
Carlson asked how spending "three days beating up on your own attorney general" helps that mission.
Lewandowski said Sessions is "a patriot" and the right man for the job.
"Right now I think he will stay," he said.
