Over the past several months, Pres. Trump repeatedly criticized AG Sessions for recusing himself from the Russia probe. He also blasted the U.S. AG for his handling of the FISA abuse allegation. The President called his action “disgraceful.”
Gov. Brown said, “I assume, and this is pure speculation, that Jeff thinks that Donald will be happy with him. Let’s face it, the Trump White House is under siege. Mueller is closing in. There are more indictments to come.”
Gov. Brown says AG Sessions should apologize to Californians
Moreover, the governor said the federal government should do its job and should not blame California for its inability to solve a problem whether a crime or immigration problems.
Gov. Brown pointed out that the U.S. Attorney General shouldn’t be coming out to California for a “political show.” He wants him to apologize to Californians for bringing the “mendacity of Washington” and trying to insert “discord and division” as well as “disfunctionality” in the state.
The governor said the DOJ’s litigation is “basically going to war against the state of California.” He also predicted,“This lawsuit is going to last a lot longer than the Trump administration.”
