Professor Bruce Green was quoted in The Atlantic about President Trump’s reasoning behind his request that AG Jeff Sessions leave the room before Trump spoke with James Comey about Michael Flynn.
“Why did Sessions leave the room? What did he think the conversation was going to be about, basketball? Or something under Comey’s jurisdiction?” asked Bruce Green, a former federal prosecutor and associate counsel in the Iran-Contra affair, now a law professor at Fordham University. “The White House has denied it, so if he knows it’s true, doesn’t he have an obligation in some forum to step up and tell the truth? He understands, or he ought to, that the president telling the FBI director to shut down an investigation is improper.”
