The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to change his decision to recuse himself from the Russia probe.
Despite this, political commentator Dr. Jason Johnson said that Sessions would never leave President Trump's side during an interview with MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell.
"He's insulted him. He's made fun of him. He has attacked him on Twitter," Johnson said. "But this is what I said, Lawrence, a couple of weeks ago when I talked about grumble bragging from members of this administration. 'Oh, it's so terrible to work for Donald Trump,' but they don't leave, do they? And they don't leave because at their core they actually agree with a lot of the things that Donald Trump is doing, even if they don't like him as a person."
Johnson said that Sessions is living out his "white nationalist" dreams.
"Jeff Sessions is in favor of the travel ban. Jeff Sessions is being just as much as a hawk on immigration. Jeff Session believes that Black Lives Matter is a terrorist organization. He is not going to leave this administration. I don't think he would ever flip on Donald Trump. This is the opportunity for him to live out the white nationalist fantasies he has been talking about for the last 35 years of his career."
