Attorney General Jeff Sessions faced a big decision.
His choice defined his time in office.
However, Sessions made a big mistake and now his career might be over.
The Justice Department Attacks Donald Trump
The Justice Department dealt three major blows to Donald Trump.
First, Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen confessed to eight counts of bank fraud, tax evasion, and campaign finance violations.
As part of his agreement, Cohen admitted Trump instructed him to make payments to women claiming they had an affair with Trump.
Second, a jury in Virginia found former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort guilty on eight counts of financial crimes.
The jury failed to reach a verdict on ten other counts.
Trump reacted to the verdict by expressing his sorrow.
President Trump declared, “I feel badly… Paul Manafort is a good man… I feel very sad about that because it involved me. It’s a very sad thing that happened. It has nothing to do with Russian collusion, it’s a witch hunt and it’s a disgrace… I feel very badly for Paul Manafort… It had nothing to do with Russian collusion, we continue the witch hunt.”
Finally, the Justice Department charged Congressman Duncan Hunter with using campaign funds for personal use.
Hunter endorsed Trump in 2016 and was the second House member to back Trump.
The Justice Department charged Congressman Chris Collins – who was the first to support Trump – with insider trading.
Trump supporters are wondering why Jeff Sessions is only targeting Republicans.
The Justice Department is ignoring James Comey, Hillary Clinton, Andrew McCabe and Tony Podesta committing crimes.
