President Donald Trump continued to wage battle against his Attorney General this week, attacking Jeff Sessions for recusing himself in the Russia investigation.
Sessions opted out of the probe to avoid a conflict of interest, since he participated in Donald Trump’s campaign.
On Fox News Friday, anchor Chris Wallace pointed to major flaw in the president’s reasoning.
“You know, things have changed and obviously the decision in the spring of 2017 to recuse himself and everything that has flowed from that has made a big difference,” Wallace said.
“Remember, the recusal of Sessions did not lead to the special counsel. It was the firing of Comey, of James Comey, the FBI director that lead to the appointment of the special counsel,” he pointed out.
“The only person the president can blame for that is himself.”
Trump is ‘asleep at the switch’ in his bunker while America needs a unifying voice: CNN’s Keith Boykin
On CNN Monday, former Bill Clinton staffer and CNN commentator Keith Boykin laid out the extent of President Donald Trump's failure in a moment of national crisis.
"Keith, do you feel this time at all may be different as far as a real outcome?" asked anchor Brooke Baldwin.
"I definitely feel this is different," said Boykin. "Think about the conditions that we're in right now. We have 41 million people who don't have jobs. You have 100,000 people who have died from the coronavirus pandemic, disproportionally black and brown people, and people outraged about the shooting and killing and murders of black men and women and the George Floyd incident and Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, where people have no place to go, nothing to do. No school or jobs to go to. No distractions. It is not like the typical protest in the past that could go back to work or class. They could spend all summer just being upset unless there is a substantive change."
George Floyd’s brother leads protest crowd in emotional prayer at the site of his brother’s death
George Floyd's brother Terrence led protesters in a tearful prayer at the makeshift memorial that has been set up at the site of his brother's death in Minneapolis.
He begged the crowd for calm as protesters around the world have marched in solidarity with those demanding justice.
Linking arms with friends and family, Mr. Floyd shouted down the crowd asking, "what are y'all doing?" Saying that breaking down businesses and setting things on fire isn't going to bring his brother back. He explained that he's more upset than anyone, but "if I'm not wilding out" others shouldn't either.
Kentucky man killed by law enforcement during George Floyd protest had provided police officers with free meals
In a heartbreaking story, police shot and killed David McAtee, the owner of a barbecue business, Yaya’s BBQ, in western Louisville, Kentucky early Monday morning.
He was known for being a "community pillar," his mother, Odessa Riley, said, according to the Currier-Journal.
She also recalled that her son would give free meals to law enforcement from his barbecue business.
"He fed them free," Riley said. "He fed the police and didn't charge them nothing."
