It’s plain and simple obstruction of justice as far as he’s concerned.

The New York Times reported on this in an exclusive story based on interviews with sources inside the White House.

Trump fumed over Sessions recusal, according to various reports since it happened, and constantly harped on the fact that he needed his Attorney General to protect him.

Sessions’ stepping aside, opened the door for Rod Rosenstein to appoint Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his stead, starting a domino effect that’s still going on today.

The Times also reported that Trump planned to send a letter to former FBI Director James Comey that called the Russia investigation “fabricated and politically motivated,” but that his aides stopped him from doing it.
