Republican Gov. Just Made Himself Look Extremely Stupid Trying To Defend Trump And Sessions
Republican governor Mike Huckabee took to Twitter on Tuesday and made a complete fool of himself trying to defend Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions.
“Dems act like they never heard of atty/client privilege; AG is top atty in Exec branch; serves @POTUS and not stooge of Congress.”

To make things clear, there is no attorney-client privilege. According to PoliticusUSA, “The Attorney General doesn’t work for the President. The Attorney General is supposed to keep a wall of separation between the White House and DOJ investigations.”
But Sessions said he is protecting Trump’s right to invoke executive privilege, which is the reason he won’t answer if he and the president discussed Russia in conversations regarding firing Comey.
