Not Trump’s lawyer
Re “Sessions defends, demurs and deflects,” June 14
Throughout his testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions dodged, dipped and weaved in ways that would have made Muhammad Ali proud. And for what, to protect himself, President Trump and possibly Russian oligarchs?
It is not Sessions’ job to protect the president or his private conversations, especially since Trump had not invoked executive privilege. It is his job to protect the Constitution and our democracy by being independent of executive influence or intimidation.
That Sessions, by his own admission, has not been briefed and has displayed little interest in what the Russians did during the 2016 president campaign is proof that he’s just a rubber stamp for Trump. He is woefully unqualified to be attorney general and should resign immediately. Eugene Sison San Dimas
