    Sessions hits back at Trump days ahead of Alabama Senate runoff

    Sessions hits back at Trump days ahead of Alabama Senate runoff

    Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions hit back at President Trump on Saturday after the president endorsed his rival in the Alabama Senate runoff just days before the contest.

    Sessions’s rebuke came after Trump called for Alabamians to vote for Tommy Tuberville, calling the former coach a “winner” and Sessions a “disaster who has let us all down.”

    “I’ve taken the road less travelled. Not sought fame or fortune. My honor and integrity are far more important than these juvenile insults. Your scandal ridden candidate is too cowardly to debate. As you know, Alabama does not take orders from Washington,” Sessions fired back.

    Big Senate Race in Alabama on Tuesday. Vote for @TTuberville, he is a winner who will never let you down. Jeff Sessions is a disaster who has let us all down. We don’t want him back in Washington!

    Sessions, who represented Alabama in the Senate for 20 years before becoming attorney general, appeared to be referring to the 2017 special Senate election to replace him when Trump backed Luther Strange, who later lost in the GOP primary to Roy Moore. Moore, who later garnered Trump’s endorsement in the general election, ultimately was defeated by Democrat Doug Jones after facing a string of sexual misconduct allegations.

    Sessions has repeatedly faced Trump’s ire during the campaign for his decision to recuse himself from the Justice Department’s investigation into Russia's election meddling, a move that the president and his allies claim led to the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel.
    “3 years ago, after Jeff Sessions recused himself, the Fraudulent Mueller Scam began. Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions. He let our Country down. That’s why I endorsed Coach Tommy Tuberville (@TTuberville), the true supporter of our #MAGA agenda!” Trump tweeted in May.

    3 years ago today @JeffSessions threw @realDonaldTrump to the wolves with the Mueller appointment. When faced with supporting POTUS or running scared, Jeff Sessions chose the easy way out and recused himself. I won't ever run from a fight in the U.S. Senate.

    Tuberville has made hay out of the issue, accusing Sessions of betraying the president in several campaign ads.


    Sessions has defended himself, saying that he was forced to recuse himself due to his involvement in Trump’s 2016 campaign and that he remains a loyal supporter of the White House’s agenda.
    “Look, I know your anger, but recusal was required by law. I did my duty & you're damn fortunate I did. It protected the rule of law & resulted in your exoneration. Your personal feelings don't dictate who Alabama picks as their senator, the people of Alabama do,” Sessions said in May.
    Polls show Sessions trailing Tuberville heading into the Tuesday runoff, with the victor running against Jones, widely considered one of the most vulnerable incumbents up for reelection this year.
