Nebraska U.S. Senator Ben Sasse is offering what Sasse calls “a word of humble advice” to President Trump.
“If you’re thinking of making a recess appointment to push out the attorney general, forget about it,” Senator Sasse says. “The presidency isn’t a bull and this country isn’t a china shop.”
Sasse joins other Republican senators who’ve publicly expressed support for Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Trump lately has been tweeting his frustrations with Sessions, who recused himself from the investigation of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election.
Sasse says Sessions criticized President Obama when Obama tried to maneuver around the Senate and he’s speaking out now when a Republican president is threatening to do the same thing.
“Our oath is not to popularity, it’s not to polls, it’s not to political parties,” Sasse says. “Our oath is to the Constitution and to the rule of law.”
