Has Trump Made Session Look Weak?

Former Attorney General Eric Holder claims that by simply taking President Trump’s criticism, Attorney General Jeff Sessions “not only weakens himself as attorney general, it has an effect on the institution.”

Holder stated, “I could not have taken as much as he has taken. I think by taking what he has taken, he not only weakens himself as attorney general, it has an effect on the institution. And at some point, you have to say to the president, no. You’ve got to respond to the president. These are extraordinary things. I’ve never seen a president talk to an attorney general in the way that this president has spoken to his attorney general, but I think you have to respond in extraordinary ways, always thinking about how you’re going to protect the institution.”
