The biggest story to dominate the news cycle over the last week has been what communication Attorney General Jeff Sessions had with Russia during the election. After Sessions recused himself from an investigation into Russian election interference, Donald Trump was not pleased.

Trump on Sessions

During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump was forced to deal with growing allegations of scandal involving Russia and his campaign. Whether it was various reports from multiple news outlets, his refusal to release his tax returns, or comments that he made during the election itself, the former host of "The Apprentice" has not been able to shake the claims of potential ties to Russia.

After retired Gen. Michael Flynn was forced to resign as National Security Advisor due to communication with Russian officials late last year, the Washington Post reported that Jeff Sessions had similar talks with a Kremlin offical last summer. In response to Sessions recusing himself following the backlash, Trump was not pleased, as reported by The Hill on March 4.

According to Robert Costa of the Washington Post, Donald Trump was furious over Jeff Sessions caving to the pressure and recusing himself. "Trump left WH in a fury on Friday, fuming about Sessions's recusal and telling aides that Sessions shouldn't have recused himself," Costa tweeted out.

In a follow-up tweet, Costa added, "President remarked to staff that Sessions/WH/DOJ should have done more to counter Sessions story, that it was "bull," per aides familiar."

In addition, ABC News doubled down on the story, describing Donald Trump as going "ballistic" when he heard the news.

"Before leaving for Mar-a-Lago yesterday, Pres. Trump summoned some senior staff to the Oval Office and went 'ballistic,'" Evan McMurry of ABC News tweeted out.

Trump's reaction

In response to the allegations against Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump took to Twitter to voice his opposition.

First, the president went on a Twitter tirade on Thursday night, accusing the Democrats of engaging in a "witch hunt." On Friday, Trump called for an investigation into Democratic leaders Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi over their alleged communication with Russia. Following that attack, Trump then took to Twitter again on Friday morning, accusing former President Obama of wiretapping his offices in Trump Tower.
