Donald Trump was apparently FURIOUS that Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any Russia investigation into Trump’s campaign. Trump was described as going “ballistic.”
Now a video has been released showing the inside of the Oval Office, and features Steve Bannon yelling at Donald Trump, or whomever is sitting at Trump’s desk.
After Trump learned of Session recusal, he summoned most of his senior staff into the Oval Office, and fumed over reports on his administration’s relationship with Russia.
Sources said the president felt Sessions’ recusal was unnecessary and only served to embolden Trump’s political opponents. The attorney general made his announcement Thursday just as Trump returned to Washington from a trip to the U.S.S. Gerald Ford in Virginia for a speech about his agenda as president.
ABC News noted that in addition to Bannon, Trump’s son-in-law/senior adviser Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were in attendance during this reported rage session. As were chief of staff Reince Priebus, White House Counsel Don McGahn, press secretary Sean Spicer and Communications Director Mike Dubke.
Do you think the Russia scandal will result in Trump’s impeachment? Comment below and let us know.
