‘Cut it out’: Former independent counsel Ken Starr slams Trump’s ‘wildly inappropriate attacks’ on Sessions
Former independent counsel Kenneth W Starr wrote a Washington Post column that blisters President Donald Trump for his ongoing public bullying campaign against Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“Mr. President, please cut it out,” the former U.S. solicitor general requested. “Tweet to your heart’s content, but stop the wildly inappropriate attacks on the attorney general”
A longtime Washington, DC institution, Starr wrote, “Jeff Sessions has recently become your piñata in one of the most outrageous — and profoundly misguided — courses of presidential conduct I have witnessed in five decades in and around the nation’s capital.”
“What you are doing is harmful to your presidency and inimical to our foundational commitment as a free people to the rule of law,” Starr concluded.
Starr still supports the President and claims to want him to succeed.
“Mr. President, for the sake of the country, and for your own legacy, please listen to the growing chorus of voices who want you to succeed — by being faithful to the oath of office you took on Jan. 20 and by upholding the traditions of a nation of laws, not of men,” Starr lectured.
